It's my turn to share my card at A2Z Scrapbooking today, with a card I've made for my husband's niece.  She is getting married in a few days and with this month's challenge being all about glitter, glimmer and bling... I thought I'd try out using some Heidi Swapp metallic foil.


This product is activated by heating it onto Toner ink through a laminator.  There is a special laminator called a Minc machine, but I used a normal little home laminator.  I firstly stamped the sentiment onto some paper and took it to my local bookstore and for 20cents got it photocopied onto my card stock (I took it with me) Once home I used the silver foil to laminate.  Not totally perfect, but not too bad!  I added the obligatory bling and a shiny mirror card Spellbinders Heart.  A very simple but elegant looking card.

Dawn this is beautiful - love the way you have let the heart take the eye, and then wander to the sentiment and bling. Love your foiling - we can't see the imperfections.
