Maggie's Embossed Foil Card

Hello, Memory Bound friends!
When I was a Memory Bound recently, I immediately noticed this beautiful card Maggie created. And while it may look complicated, it was surprisingly easy to create!

Maggie started with an Inkssentials Foil Tape Sheet in orange (shown below in silver). These adhesive-backed foil sheets have a multitude of uses -- including embossing! She ran the foil sheet through her Texture Boutique to create the embossed leaf design.

Next, Maggie rubbed black StazOn ink over the surface of the foil sheet. StazOn ink adheres to most any surface, including slick surfaces like the foil sheets. Regular stamping ink would not adhere.

To finish her card, Maggie simply adhered the completed foil piece to a black mat. She stamped a sentiment with embossing ink, then used rust-colored embossing powder and a heat gun to emboss it. Finally, she adhered the black mat to her card base.

Thanks, Maggie, for showing us a wonderful use for embossing folders and foil sheets!
