The other day I was playing around in my Stampin’ Studio and came across an unopened package of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate. I decided it was time to create something fun with this special “paper”. These are 12″ x12″ Acetate sheets (like our Window Sheets) only these have stunning designs printed on them. There are 3 different designs and you get 2 of each sheet. Another great thing about these sheets is that they’re reversible! That’s right, they’re Silver on one side and gold on the other, so it really allows for a lot of versatility. I decided to go silver for the first card.
Today’s Color Palette
Let’s Take a Closer Look
Sticking with a sliver theme, I used the sentiment from Here’s to Cheers stamp set and did some heat embossing. I then layered it onto one of the large silver Metallic Foil Doilies. Isn’t that fun? I also added some Silver Sequin Trim for a bit more sparkle and shine. Check out the Gold version too!
And look… I decided I wanted to try it with Copper, so I stamped a Gold Doily with the VersaMark Pad and sprinkled Copper Embossing Powder over the doily, then heat set it with the Heat Tool. How cool is that to have a copper doily too! Makes you want to order up a bunch of those Metallic Foil Doilies doesn’t it?
