A Spring Flower Envelope Card

I took inspiration from Joanna Sheen's new book with this card as I happened to have the cd from which the designs were taken. Tried out a brand new technique today of foiling and it worked a treat. I am so impressed with the results and amazed at how easy it is. First I printed out the words I needed from my computer just using a Word application. I then used a Quickie Glue pen as advised in the foiling instructions and traced the words onto vellum . The important thing is to leave this to dry for about 20 minutes then just place the foil (shiny side up)over the gluey words and rub lightly. Gently lift the foil away to leave the wording beautifully shiny.

This is definately one thing I will be doing again.

This card will be winging its way to one of the ladies on the Joanna Sheen forum for this month's card swap.
