Blissful Heart Hot Foil Plate - Positive & Negative
by Angie Cimbalo

Hello, it's Angie here today with 2 fun cards for Valentine's Day using hot foiling!  It's quite early to be working on these but I need to work ahead as February is one of my busiest months helping out at school music programs!  

For the first card I used the new "Blissful Heart" hot foil plate just released this year with some gold foil on light pink glitter paper from the "Pastel Glitter" paper pad.  I love the way it turned out, and the fun part was being able to use the negative left over piece on my second card that you will see below.

For this first card I also cut the foiled heart with the "Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out" (94359) largest die in the set.  I added the heart to the white card base and then added the sentiment "Sending Love Daily Script" 94661.  I used gold mirror cardsoick from the "Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad" (FP1003) for the outline on top of white card stock.  Here's a real close up look at the heart details: 

I really love how this card turned out, it's clean and simple but has lots of intricate detail on the heart.
Here's one last look:

Now let's look at what I did with the left over "negative" piece of hot foil I had:

The leftover piece was so pretty, I decided to use it in a 2nd card by attaching it to a piece of vellum, then covering it with the leftover glitter card panel that I'd cut the pink heart from.  Below you can see I turned the thin piece of leftover hot foil over, and added double sided adhesive to it so I could stick the vellum to it.  This way when you look through the gold foil openings, you will see a soft glow of the vellum.
It looks horribly messy but the messy parts will be covered by the large light pink glitter panel.

Now below you can see I turned it over and the adhesive I'd added stuck right down on the vellum square I'd cut.  Again it looks really bad, you can even see a strip of missing gold where a piece of double sided tape with a mind of it's own, stuck to my finger and ripped all the gold off!  It doesn't matter as long as the heart portion looks good, because you will cover all the ugly part with the glitter panel.

So now, I added the glitter panel (with the heart opening - I used that heart for the first card!) As you can see, all the ugly parts are hidden and all you see is that beautiful design of gold and vellum inside the heart opening!  It is all placed on a white card base.

I used the same sentiment die, gold on top of white card and put it right on the heart.  Here's one last look at my second card:

I love it when you can make two cards like this by using the leftovers from one card!  I hope you will take a look at all the wonderful Valentine's Day products available from Memory Box HERE!
Thanks for stopping by!
