For my first card, I used one of the techniques that Jen showed by using specialty paper for my card. I’m pretty bad at masking so while I wanted to do another technique, I didn’t think it would turn out very well. Later on in a different course for the Altenew Educator Program there is a class on Masking so I’m saving it to try then.
Using the New Leaf Frame Cover Die, I die cut two of them from Gold Foiled Cardstock. Since the design is asymmetrical, I rotated the top one 180 degrees which gives a much fuller look that kind of makes that gold really pop.
For the second card, I had a used piece of decofoil and I wanted to be able to use the negative of that for my background. Thermoweb makes black toner sheets and so I was able to place the foil over that and it transferred it to the black paper wherever there was still gold foil on that piece. It looks so rich and elegant!
I used Dark Blue and Black for the card bases respectively. Whenever I use a dark bard base, I always cut a white interior panel to write on.
So there you have it - not one but two clean and simple boutique cards! I hope I've given you some ideas for making some of you own.
Have a great day everyone! I have a few more classes to write posts for over the next few days, so be sure to come back and see them. Thank you so much for stopping by today!
