One Hot Foil plate - 3 cards

 Hi there from a cold wintery night here in NZ.   I recently got a new hot foil plate from Altenew called Vibrant Florals and it's co ordinating stencil.  It's a beauty  - quite large too.... so I pulled out the Go Press and Foil machine on Monday and some WRMK's Rose Gold Foil and put it through it's paces...I managed to make three cards -

I placed the Hot foil plate in the middle of a half sheet of 8.5" x 11" card - foiled and then used the stencil to colour.  I then cut the panel in half to get two panels 4.25" x 5"  

This panel had the larger amount of the foiling which I trimmed down and matted onto some black card.  I then took some blue card and die cut the hello from Altenew's All About You word die set.  I then add a sentiment strip from Sentiment Strips 3.  Finished with a few rose gold sequins.

The second one used the smaller portion of the foiling.  The one was trimmed slightly and matted onto blue card.   The sentiement used was from Altenew's Just a Number stamp set.   I then added lots of Navy blue ink splatters.

And of course, I could not waste the foil left over.  I have the Pinkfresh solid foil plate and heated it up and added the foil to some card. 

I trimmed the panel down and matted onto some off white card before adding to a white base.  I used a Spellbinders foiled sentiment die cut with a Spellbinders oval die.  Have to say it's very difficult to photograph foiled cards especially on a winter's afternoon.  

Thanks for visiting today.

Three foiled beauties, Dawn! Love that the floral plate has a matching stencil; just love how you colored the panel and split into two! So elegant with the outline on card three too!!

I don't really understand the technique yet, but the result is stunning. Now I have to take a closer look at this technique.

Wow--you've really gotten the foiling down to a science! These are all beautiful, but I especially like the first one!
