Glimmer Daisy Bouquet Happy Birthday

This card uses different hot foil techniques. The daisies are foiling a regular die, which gives you a fine gold border. The second is foiling the waste of another project, which gives a solid foil look with a pattern. I’ve had mixed success with foiling the waste, but this one turned out nice on Kraft cardstock. The sentiment and small leaf and flower is a hot foil stamp/die.

The daisies were colored with Copic Markers, which work great with hot foil. It resists the maker, but you need to work slowly and precisely to stay within the thin gold outlined. I decided to use a golden yellow. The daisy die comes with a coordinating outline die and works perfectly on foiled projects.

The foiled waste background was cut down using a stitched rectangle and adhered to a top folding Kraft cardbase with liquid glue. The daisy bouquet and sentiment were adhered using Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape.

The final embellishment was to add small gold rhinestones to the center of the larger flowers.
