Fast Foiled Magenta Card

Creating a fast gold leaf foiled card is a snap with a background stencil and a sentiment stamp.

Simply place a background stencil down, in this case I used the Magenta Triangles one, on a piece of thick cardstock and stamp with a VersaMark ink pad. Next, add an adhesive emboss powder and heat just until it begins to melt. Place gold leaf foil on top and rub off loose foil. Adhere to a card base. Then, white heat emboss stamp a sentiment on black cardstock, cut to size, and use foam tape to adhere it to the centre of the card. 

Magenta products used:

There you have it... elegant, fast and simple!

Another way to get a gorgeous gold effect in very little time is with glitter embossing powder as in this card.

For this one, once I stamped the VersaMark ink pad through the stencil, I covered it with Emerald Creek's Gold Sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. I cut the brush script sentiment with my Silhouette Cameo and that was another card done. Such a perfect card for an upcoming graduate!
