Hello Everyone!

It is starting to look a lot like the Holidays, every where you look.  So why not add some holiday inspiration to our Sunday Card Share space ( I will be bringing you some inspiration to this space for a few weeks).

This week i wanted to bring you some ideas on how to highlight  cut-outs (cut files) by using foiled backgrounds.

These cards were created in a short amount of time with the help of the Silhouette Cameo,and a foiling machine. The cut files come from the Silhouette Store;  for both cards, I used white card stock to create the cut-out for  the cards.  While the Cameo was cutting the image, I used foil to cover a sheet of  toner  rich paper ( I simply print an entire sheet black in a laser printer, making sure that i set the  printer’s toner to maximum).

The foiled paper was then cut to within the edges of the cut-out card stock piece.   Both pieces of paper were attached together by using some strong tape adhesive.  Finally, this piece is attached to a card base of choice ( I am using a card base made of patterned paper, in this card).

Since the cut-outs in the cards are nicely highlighted by the foiled backgrounds,  the sentiment was kept simple.  I chose to attach some phrase stickers using foam adhesive, this not only adds dimension to the card, but brings some emphasis to the sentiment.

The last step to complete these  cards is to create envelopes to contain them.   These envelopes were created from pattern paper using an envelope punch, but you could use a Silhouette cut file, or simply find a pattern on the internet.
These cards came together in a very short time with the aid of the cutting and foiling machine. The combination of both cut outs and foiled backgrounds  do create a very striking look on the cards.

I hope this serves as inspiration to use either or both die cut and foiling machine when creating cards.  They do save a lot of time, and there is a large source of designs available.

As always, let me know if you have any questions on  how these came together.
See you all soon!Nathalie @ scrapbooknerd.com
