I must say that foil cardstock is tons of fun to play with. But . . . horrible to photograph. So I did my best to share with you the beauty of embossed foil cardstock.
I am talking about the cool backdrop for the Rich Razzleberry flower:
In the following photo, you can see the embossed foil cardstock a little better. It is also apparent that I used the same embossing folder on the white layer. I felt it really needed that texture to add more interest and to echo the look of the embossing on the gold.
Here's a tutorial on how to make a card similar to this one.
Rich Razzleberry cardstock
Gold Foil Cardstock
Color and Contour stamp set (page 97, Annual Catalog)
Rich Razzleberry ink
Die Cutting/Embossing Machine
Layering Circles dies (page 173, Annual Catalog)
Script Embossing Folder
Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.
Cut a piece of white cardstock that measures 4" x 5 1/4" and emboss it with the script embossing folder. Add this to the card base.
Cut a 3" square of gold foil cardstock. Run this through the embossing machine. Add this to a 3 1/4" square of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
Adhere this square to the card front with even margins at the top and the sides.
On a scrap of white cardstock, stamp the flower from the Color and Contour set in Rich Razzleberry ink. Fussy cut the flower.
From Rich Razzleberry cardstock, die cut a 1 7/8" circle using the Layering Circles die. Adhere the fussy cut flower to the center of this circle.
Add a 1/4" gold gemstone to the center of the flower.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to add this slightly raised from the center of the gold embossed piece.
In Rich Razzleberry ink, stamp a sentiment onto a 1" x 3 1/4" strip of white cardstock.
Adhere a strip of the gold foil cardstock that measures 3/8" x 3 7/8" to the back of the sentiment piece, with the two ends extending evenly at the sides.
Add this to a 1 1/4" x 3 1/2" piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the sentiment piece to the bottom of the card.
