Hi Everyone, and welcome to my post today which is a layout I have created using Embossing Folders and Hot Foil combined. Collette Mitrega has a wonderful tutorial video on the Couture Creations Blog explaining how to using Embossing Folders with the GoPress & Foil machine ——> here.
I started by cutting all of the layers for my layout – and don’t forget that if you can’t see it then it may not be there. Meaning that I have cut the middle out of the pink and white cardstock layers that are behind my main white cardstock background. Once I had cut what I needed I cut my scraps down and proceeded to Hot Foil various co-ordinating colours of Foil with four of my favourite embossing folders (listed below).
Whilst I had my GoPress & Foil Machine going I used it to foil the Chipboard title which is from the recently released C’est la Vie Couture Creations collection. To unify all of the layers, embellishments and foiled squares I have inked everything with a lilac ink and a sponge dauber.
The Hot Foiled squares are all 1.5″x1.5″ with even gaps all around – that I have eyeballed because I didn’t want to have pencil marks on my layout that needed to be removed. I know that the Hot Foiling isn’t perfect on every square, however I am happy with this as it brings a lovely softness to the layout.
I had some scraps leftover from my layout and have used them to create a bonus Mothers Day Card using another chipboard title from the C’est la Vie collection. I will share this card with you later in the month.
Well I guess that is it for me today, except to share some linked images of the products I have used….
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day
