Christmas Card Week #6

This is the 6th week for making cards on the FaceBook Group, Only Christmas Cards/Projects.   This is their challenge for the year of 2016.  

I did a little something different for this one.  I'm sure you've heard about the "foiling" craze using Heidi Swapp and Anna Griffin's Minc machines.  I bought Anna Griffin's when she first shared it on HSN last year.  As usual, when I get a new machine I let it sit for a while before using it.  Don't ask me why, I'm just funny that way.  I decided to try foiling on this card.
Card Recipe:
5.5" Square Card Base - Red Metallic
Background paper- Silver Metallic paper embossed with an Anna Griffin Christmas embossing folder
Wreath and center piece are from a packet of Christmas toner embellishments from Anna Griffin.  Wreath is foiled with green and Noel is foiled in red.  The way the light is shining on the green it makes it look two toned but it isn't.  It's actually all like the lighter green.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  I hope you all have a wonderful week.  God Bless You!!  Peggy

  1. I can just imagine how very elegant looking it is in real life. I love it this way but I bet the foiled area is awesome.

  2. This is stunning!! I can appreciate how hard it is to get a true picture of the beauty of foiling! Thanks for sharing with us at Creative Fingers this time :)
