I am having so much fun experimenting with different background dies I have using them with hot foil. I have done a lot on white cardstock and decided to give it a try with a dark cardstock. I love the look of silver on black and that combination using hot foil did not disappoint.
For this card I used Spellbinder’s Basic Lattice Impressibilities Die. I wanted to use it on a masculine card and pulled out the Cottage Cuts Racecars and Flags die. This is a solid die that cuts out all the pieces you need to assemble a couple of cars. I cut it from black, red, and silver mirror cardstock and assembled the race car and the flags together to create this card.
I needed a sentiment that would go along with the car image and found something perfect from Unity Stamp’s For the Guys. It was stamped on a scrap of black cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed silver. It was cut down so size using a Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Label Die. Since the car was red I added a red mat to the back of the sentiment.
To assemble the card I added foam tape behind the images and sentiment to make them pop on the card front and adhered them all using liquid glue. Before adhering to a black side folding cardbase I decided to mat the foiled background with red mirror cardstock. I love the way it turned out.
