OK the kit for the month is Pattern Play. To be honest I never got beyond the stamps. They are fabulous and for the techniques I am going to share, they can't be beat!!
To continue our exploration of foiling, I tried several different methods and would like to share them with you. This is where we move foiling away from the laminator onto the stamp table. Are you ready. Well here is just a glimpse of what is to come!!!
I decided to play with my gilding flakes while I was at it and for several of the cards gilded them. Did not photo this part as I was covered in flakes and glue and did not want to decorate my camera!!
That is all there is to it!! Now lets look at the results.
The biggest surprise was how well the Mount IT worked.
So I needed to make these into cards: I have a total of 12 fronts and chose only a few to finish.
For the mats: I tried several options.

Not my favorite technique as you can see the edges of the tape.
with card placed on top, not so noticeable.
Then, I repeated the same with wider taper and
Added gilding flakes. The rest of the cards I just cut gold mats:
No sentiments. These will be collected into a set and will be given as a notecard set. Letting the owner write and use them for whatever need they may have, thank you, get well, etc.
That is all there is to foiling folks. There is one more technique I tried for this post, but it failed. I need to work on it and will share in a future blog post. After this we should be foiling masters!!
Your next stop on the hop is: Cheryl
