To begin, stamp your image onto 80 lb. Neenah Solar White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Trim the paper into a square that is slightly larger than your focal image, and round two opposite corners using a corner rounder punch. Color the image with Copic markers.

Cut a second square of white cardstock that is slightly larger than your stamped panel, and once again round two opposite corners with the corner punch. Using the iCraft Deco Foil Adhesive Pen, apply liquid adhesive to the edges of the second cardstock panel. Allow the adhesive to dry for a few minutes, until it is tacky to the touch.

Cut thin strips of champagne Deco Foil Transfer Sheet, and apply the strips to the edges of the panel. Make sure the colored side of the foil is up, and the silver side is down against the adhesive. Run the paper and foil through the cutting plates on your die cutting machine. Alternatively, you can run the paper and foil through a laminator, if you prefer.

Peel off the foil transfer sheet and check out your cool foil frame. You can leave the paper as is, or apply light brown ink over the framed edge using an ink blending tool. This will tone down any remaining bare spots on the paper underneath.

Cut a 5×5 piece of kraft cardstock for the card base. Swipe Picket Fence Distress Paint over the outside edges of the paper, and allow to dry. Then add a small touch of champagne Deco Foil to the very edges using the same process we used for the image mat.

To assemble the card, adhere the kraft cardstock to a square card base using XL Tape Runner adhesive. Cut two panels of patterned paper, and round several of the corners with the corner rounder punch before adhering to the card base. Add a strip of gold deco tape across the bottom of the card. Adhere the stamped image onto the framed mat. Tie twine around the bottom of the panel, and add stamped sentiment. Adhere the image to the center of the card using 3D Adhesive Foam Squares for dimension.

And finally, add sequins to the card using Fabric Fuse Liquid Adhesive to adhere.

Here’s one last close-up look at the details and all the pretty gold accents, from the foil to the glitter tape to the shiny metallic sequins. It all adds a great mixed-media look to any papercrafting project.

For my second card, I created a quick and easy little tower of critters using Taylor’s adorable Quick Critters stamp and die combo. I simply punched three circles onto a strip of patterned paper, and used Therm O Web’s 3D Adhesive Squares to add some dimension between the paper and the background cardstock, creating the perfect little windows in which to adhere my animal friends. I then tucked one critter into each opening, adding a bit of foam adhesive behind the heads of each animal for some life-like fun.
