You are Gold...
Sorry for the delay in todays blog post dot was quite an eventful return form Frankfurt which resulted in getting back home at 4:30am this morning! Trust today to be the day I hadn't got a scheduled post ready!
I really wanted to start to share some of the samples I have made using the Go Press filing machine from Couture Creations. I managed to get one of these fab machines for My Birthday and have spent quite a few hours just playing to get to grips with the filing process and Like most Crafters I lovet he new edge this gives to my crafting arsenal!
Today's card is made using just a simple sentiment hot foil stamp for the main centre panel. I simply started by making up a card base using the panel die form my sandwich box die set in a repeating pattern around the outside. I set a panel in the centre using the press cut notched corner squares and plain square sin a mix of white and gold mirror card ( A great excuse to use mirror card again!)
For the centre panel I simply used the easiest technique on the machine by hot filing the Thank You sentiment and placed this in the centre. I wanted to add little extra so I folded my Starflower leaves and added these, after die cutting, on the bottom left.
This was the first Card I made and is a little basic but I thought i would share more with the foiling technique over the coming weeks I thought It best to show the start of the journey.
