Foiled card can add the luxury look to any of your designs and make your cards stand out from the rest.
Foiled Card is a truly luxurious material that is a real pleasure to work with at any time of the year, and the effects it creates can be really stunning.
The foiling in the card could be gold, silver, bronze or a myriad of other colours, and they can be bought in as many patterns and styles that you can imagine to suit your designs.
Try some that comes with foiled Ivy, Christmas Trees or Holly leaves in your cards for all your Christmas makes.
Why not add some beautiful flourishes that can enhance any of the images you have used as toppers.
Flowers, butterflies, swirls and geometric patterns can all add a decadent feel to your designs.
Use an A4 sheet folded in half as a complete card base or use any of your dies to produce foiled panels for any matting and layering you are adding to the card
This very special card has been made by doing just that ...folding an A4 sheet of foiled card in half to use as the A5 base to my creation.
It is in a soft cream and has subtle foiled flowers and butterflies on it.
The added panel that sits on the top has been embossed in a flourish folder and decorated with self adhesive flat backed pearls.
A triple bow was been tied and then added to the cream ribbon that I have wrapped around the panel.
I have added some really old fashioned silver Peel Off sentiments to complete the picture.
Easy, simple but oh! so pretty!
Die cutting into foiled card can also give a lovely look to any project. Create a frame and add that to the top of your base card and then decorate around the frame with flowers and leaves and flourishes.
This is always a good "Go To" design whenever you are stuck in a rut, or your MoJo has gone walkabout, and you just don't know what you want to make.
Foiled card is a truly luxurious material that as well as die cutting into it you can also emboss it in any of the embossing folders you may have in your collection.
It can be a little more expensive than the plain type but not much more and it is worth the extra for that added look. And if you only use a smaller panel of it then it is not that bad.
It can be bought in may craft shops as well as online stores, and you will find a vast assortment of well priced card stock on Amazon
The foiling in the card could be gold, silver, bronze or a myriad of colours, and can be in any pattern you can imagine.
The plain foiled card is sometimes called Mirror Card and that also comes in many colours.

Foiled card is something I use quite a lot in my card making, both the patterned and the plain type, for the beautiful look it can give.
I have used it as complete cards, as mats for my designs and I have on may occasions simply cut sentiments from it with dies.
Cutting the sentiment two or three times and then stacking with the foiled one on the top will give depth to the words and make them stand out from the card even more.
