Foil Play DT Challenge: foiled and glittered cards from Rainbowwand and Marzipan

A little while ago I asked some talented crafters to produce some foiled and glittered samples, to showcase Foil Play's rub on foils and ultra fine glitters. These cards are the first Design Team challenge samples produced by Marzipan and Rainbowwand from the CraftTelly forum - thank you, ladies!

Marzipan produced the elegant card above for a card swap with a chic theme. The card features a pair of co-ordinating borders in hot pink and burgundy rub on foil, to complement the stamped evening dress image used as the card's centrepiece. The borders were made by adhering double sided self adhesive tape to the card, removing the top layer, then pressing over and rubbing on the foil, shiny side up.
Rainbowwand produced the beautiful card above for a card swap with a tag theme. She has highlighted the edge of the tag and elements of the background image with rose pink glitter, using a Sakura Quickie glue pen.
Here are two more gorgeous cards from Rainbowwand featuring ultra fine glitters. Both cards feature images stamped onto acetate using a Stazon inkpad, the acetate has then been glittered on the reverse side, before being mounted on the project.
