Foil….and not the kitchen kind!

Hello!  Today, I am going to talk about foil…..pretty, sparkly foil…..not the kind used to wrap up last night’s leftovers! I am sharing a video with you that shows how easy it is to make a foiled card, using Creative Vision Foilables foil and graphic images.  Foil has been on the horizon for the past few years, but seems to be coming a bit more into light as of recently.  As with anything, I am not the trend setter nor trend follower, I tend to lag behind.  Walking Dead and Game of Thrones? Didn’t even watch the very first episode until they were in their last season. #slacker

I mention my lack of following the pack because I fought the urge to get into foiling for a while.  It almost seemed too easy….I would rather slave over a card for 4 hours only to decide that now it was like my child and I couldn’t bear to give it away.  Plus, more tools to buy….although that has never stopped me before, soo that was just an excuse to rationalize that it was almost TOO simple.  Then, I tried it. And I was thinking, yes, it is simple.  Yes, it is easy.  And yes, it produces an absolutely stunning result!  Long story medium, watch my video and see just how easy it is to create a beautiful card that you would be proud of.  The best part? Since foiling is so easy, make one to keep and one to share….and you will still have spent less than 20 minutes at your craft table!
