CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Fabulous Foil

It it's the 15th of the month that means it's time for a new Technique Blog Hop!
This month we are featuring the NEW Foil that is now in our Annual Inspirations Idea Book!  If you've come from the blog of Belinda McLane you're on the right track. Just keep clicking the links in each post to continue along on the hop!

The foil comes in either Silver or Gold and is so versatile you won't believe it! It's going to make your creations look magical! Take a look at this card where I used it as layers. The foil takes the card up to an elegant level with the glitter paper and foil layers. And don't you love the look of that little silver bow?!! I ran the ink pad across the embossing folder before embossing to get the look you see here. This foil is a nice cardstock weight and easy to work with. You'll love it!

This time I used the foil to create this beautiful embossed layer! Wow! I mounted it on Glitter paper and added a couple pearls and that was all it needed.
