Go Press and Foil Christmas

_MG_2628 (Medium)

Some Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel paper collection today, and an experiment using a Go Press and Foils stamp on patterned paper. it worked a treat, and I will be doing this a lot more!The background papers are from the 12 x 12 papers in the Kaisercraft Christmas jewel collection, and I foiled a lovely purple foil onto the patterned paper for the sentiment. a matching collectable and ribbon bow to complete a very simple Christmas card. i have been foiling this morning…. I have been die cutting my own chipboard pieces and foiling them. The secret is in getting the shim correct. I have found that using a piece of the chipboard cardboard is just the right thickness for a shim on my die cutting machine, but everyone’s die cutting machine is different depending on how loose it is so experimentation is essential. If your first run through is patchy, you need a thicker shim and you can just foil over the top with another piece of foil.Til tomorrow…..
