Foiled Birthday Card Set

Happy Monday my crafty friends!! 
I have been inspired recently to organize and clean up my craft 
space and I stumbled upon my foils and it inspired me to get them out and play.
I decided to create a few foiled backgrounds and those backgrounds inspired this set of 
simple birthday cards.

I used the following Jaded Blossom products on my cards -

Here are some close ups of the cards -

I don't own any fancy equipment - I just used Decofoil transfer gel duo, 
some foil sheets and a laminator I bought from Costco.
I don't always get a perfect product but as you can see
from my cards I do get decent results most of the time.

For the word dies I used some Decofoil toner sheets
and cut out a small amount, foiled it first and then cut out with the 
word dies.  I layered the word dies with an extra background in a different color
to help the word stand out from the background better.
I also glued 3 layers of the sentiment strip together to lift the word "happy" 
off the background.

I am pleased with the results and hope I have inspired you to play with some 
of the crafty goodies you may be hoarding too ;)

Thanks for stopping by today!!
