Foiled Anna Griffin Flourish die card & July prize challenge

This 8 x 8 inch card was again made using Anna Griffin papers & embellishments. I cut a the background flourish swirl using cream card and the Anna Griffin flourish die below (now reduced by 25%!). I traced around the die with a Sakura Quickie glue pen, waited for it to dry and then foiled with holographic silver foil. I finished the card with a touch of bling and a Craftwork Cards greeting.

Embossed and foiled bird card

I made this 8 x 8 inch card using Anna Griffin paper and embellishments, using an Anna Griffin embossing folder to create the focal image. I highlighted the bird using a Zig glue pen (the chisel tip made this quick & easy to do), then allowed the glue to dry, before rubbing over with matt gold foil. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

Don't forget that the Foil Play Design Team call is open until this Sunday - thank you so much to those who have already applied!
