Tuesday Morning Sketches #725

 Hello! Thank you for stopping by.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  If fun, it's easy, I think you'll like it if you just give it a try.

My card features a Hot Foil plate and Layering Stencils from Crafty Meraki.  This is one of my new favorite stores.  I try to buy often but my crafting budget only goes so far.  This set is called Love Forever.

I rarely make 5x7 cards but this set is so huge, an A2 card couldn't contain it's gloriousness....

I took an ivory 5x7 base from Tonic Studios, which is very heavy card stock and hot foiled the image directly on the card.  Never did this before, but the results are fantastic.  Then I hot foiled again on a smaller size card.  This smaller layer I colored using the layering stencils.  I then cut 3 squares out from the colored piece and layered to some gold card stock and then placed on the base.

Check out this shine... it looks like fire!

I think my sister is going to love her birthday card!  

Thank you for your visit and we'll see you over at the TMS blog.  Be sure to leave the team some love.
