Process: Hot foil the ornament coverplate twice using Spellbinders Glimmer or similar machine. Die cut the ornament out of one panel, plus a few extra ornaments from white to layer for dimension. Shade the edges of the pink ornament with Victorian Velvet, then glue to white layers & add into its spot on the coverplate. Adhere to A2 card. Stamp sentiment in Versamark and emboss with gold. Die cut two bows and layer with a slight offset. Add to ornament with a gem in bow's center.
Very quick and easy to get a gorgeous effect! I first made cards using the ornament hot foil plate during the Hero Arts Holiday Stamp-Along. You can see more versions here and here. First time trying gold foil with the ornament plate and I love it!! Too bad I've already reached my limit of 3 at the February Christmas Kickstart Challenge since my ornament would meet their theme - oh well.
Here's a bonus for you - a gold foiled branch card:
Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White;
Paper Studio red; DCWV green; Tim Holtz Kraft Metallic gold
Foil & Cut - Hero Arts Holiday Greenery
Stamps - Hero Arts Holiday Borders and Icons &
Other - Copic Markers R24/R59/G12/G20/G46;
Versamark Ink & Ranger Princess Gold ep;
Hero Arts Pale Tomato ink; foam tape
And here's a closeup of the branch - love it!!!
Process: Foil the branch onto Neenah, then die cut with the included die. Color with Copics. Stamp A2 card with poinsettia bold print stamp tone-on-tone. Stamp and emboss sentiment strip, then mat onto gold. Assemble card - done!
I'm adding the branch card to Darnell's February NBUS Challenge since my new greenery foil set got first play here. And as Darnell would say, how about a Threefer? I took the pink foiled panel left after I'd die cut the ornament out and decided to use it. Had to trim part of the design off since I wasn't careful to get the whole piece of paper on the hot foil plate - it worked though! I embossed the same sentiment directly onto the A2 card and added a gold topper to the ornament.
