Elegant Anniversary Card - Lining things up to create an elegant backgro...

Join me as I work on making this card with a foiled background, foiled ribbon, and foiled and die cut embellishments. 

There are tips for

  • Lining up the card with the large foil plate, so that both halves of the pattern look like a smooth continuation.  
  • Lining up die to foil around the foiled heart in a different colour foil 
  • Positioning die cut elements both so that they   lined up correctly with the edges of the card.  

I show my planning, successes, challenges and changes to the design as I go along.

This is a very long video - but feel free to fast forward through any sections or techniques you are already familiar with.   

The large plates I've used in this video are Todo hot foil plates - Fronds and Flourishes (available from Create and Craft), and Chinoise Print (available from Scrappy Cat Crafts).  

The red foiling on the heart is a Spellbinders Glimmer hot foil stamp - 3 hearts by Paul Antonio (exclusive to Scrapbooking Made Simple).  

The sentiment is from the Spellbinders Glimmer Elegant Occasions Sentiments by Becca Feekan set.  The side die cut flourish is Tatterd Lace Baroque border.
