These holiday cards feature a couple of fun techniques; reverse hot foiling and a flat shaker.

  • The backgrounds were created with Under The Mistletoe Hot Foil Plate. For the blue card, Bristol Smooth card stock was ink blended with Distress Oxide inks Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire. The panel was foiled in silver and the foil retained.

  • For the second card, a Solid Rectangle Foiling Plate was placed on the Hot Foil System and the shiny side of the foil with the negative design face down on the rectangle plate. Navy blue card stock was placed on top. Because of the large surface area being foiled, in addition to the foil plate and shim, I used a sheet of copy paper folded in half.

  • Both panels were trimmed to 4 1/4" by 5 1/2". The ink blended panel was mounted on a black, A2 sized card base.

  • The reverse foiled card and the black card base were cut with a circle die. To ensure the circles aligned, the card base was opened up and the card front aligned to one end of the card base. The circle was cut. If the die does not cut through both, it will leave an impression to line up the die.


  • For the card above, double sided tape was placed around the circle die cut opening on the back of the foiled panel and the front of the card base. Both were then covered with glittered tulle. The tulle on the card base was sprinkled with silver and blue confetti and, using liquid adhesive, the card front was adhered to the card base aligning the circle openings. Voila! A flat shaker!

  • A grouping of leaves was added to the left hand corner of the card.
