Spotlight Technique with Hot-Foiled Card Panels - 3 cards!
Hello Poppy Peeps!
It's Sphoorti again with three cards for you today (I know it seems like four from the pictures above but that's because one of the cards looks completely different when viewed at different angles. I'll tell you more about that later). I had this idea last year, but didn't get around to making it, so here you are stuck with me all the way in February with holiday cards! (Also because I absolutely love the holidays and can't help but make cards with that theme throughout the year!)
All of these cards worked off of the same materials. I had my hot foil machine out one day and I mass produced a number of hot foiled panels using the Leaf and Tendril Hot Foil Plate. The panel you see in the card below was made from Opal foil, and I can't say enough about how cool it is. It's seemingly colorless, but when you try to photograph it, it ends up looking completely different in each picture depending on the angle you take it. It's like getting ten cards in one, which is why you're seeing hundreds of pictures for the same card. <Can you blame me?>
And a few months later, I pulled out the 2548 Stacked Joy craft die and die cut the panels at the center. Then, it was pretty much mixing and switching the various positive and negative die cuts. I made sure to use any scraps I had left to make additional cards so that I wouldn't lose any of that foiled goodness.
In order to get that "spotlight look", I used the 2548 Stacked Joy craft die to cut multiple sentiments and stacked the alphabets to make them as thick as a chipboard. Then, I used the alphabet die cuts from the hot foiled card stock as the top layer and inlaid everything back and that was it!
Thoughts? Questions? Epiphanies? Which of the cards was your favorite? I'd love to hear your opinions! Thank you for visiting! See you soon!
