Today is my Dad’s Birthday so Happy Birthday Dad! He truly is one of the best Dad’s that you could ever have! If something needs to be fixed he can do it. My friends refer to him as McGuyver or as my cousin calls him Super Danny! He once fixed my car remote with a gum wrapper, not kidding! Happy Birthday Dad!
I had a very nice day yesterday, I went to lunch with my friend Sue, we went to SmashBurger. They have really good food there, especially the fried pickles and the sweet potato fries, they are nice and crispy! After lunch we went to Michaels and then came back to my house and I finally got to do the fun technique that I promised to share with you. Gold foil is very in right now and it’s super simple to do. You might even have all the equipment that you need already. I found an image of sheet music online and printed it out with my laser printer. Then I took some of the gold foil, mine is form iCraft and is called Deco Foil. I put it on top if the printed sheet and then placed it inside a piece of printer paper and ran it though my laminator. When it comes out it looks like this…
How cool is that?! All of the foil sticks to the toner! You need a laser printer, it won’t work with an ink-jet because you need the toner. I think it’s a really cool look and you can foil anything that you can print! I’ll definitely be using this more!
So today’s card is actually for my Dad! I started off with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. A piece of Hemptique Black Hemp Twine is tied in a bow around the middle. Then I adhered the gold foiled sheet music to the base. The greeting is from the Balloon Bash Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I used the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut it out and adhered it to the card with a few pieces of Clear Foam Tape. A super simple card but the gold foil sheet music gives it lots of impact! I hope that you enjoyed my birthday card for my Dad and the fun simple technique! Thank you very much for coming by today! I wish you all a simple Sunday! I’m off to Manhattan for a bit to see some friends! 🙂
