Rectangle Duo Border Birthdays
by Trina Pham

Hello and happy Easter!  No Easter card today.  Instead I used the Rectangle Duo Border hot foil plate two ways to create two simple birthday cards.


On this first card, the hot foil plate foiled the double line frame as it is intended using gold hot foil.


The peonies were die cut from white cardstock and colored with Shaded Lilac distress ink using a finger blending brush.  The leaves were colored with YG61, YG63 and YG67 Copic Sketch markers.  For some sparkle, spritz the peonies with a shimmer spray.


On the second card, the hot foil plate was flipped and the backside was foiled resulting in a thick solid frame.  It doesn’t foil as cleanly and it took a few tries to get this result… but it worked and is one way to stretch your hot foil plate.  😉


Kept it really simple as a masculine card and did some partial hot foiling with the Confetti Dot hot foil plate.  Heat embossed the sentiments with gold embossing powder on both cards to finish. 


No matter what I tried, I could not get another decent photo of the confetti card. 🤷🏻‍♀️   Anyway. Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.





Beautiful cards, love especially the first one! Marvellous dramatic feel with the hot foiling and the sweet colours of the flowers!

These are so elegant and the foiling is so sharp and clean. Your shading on the flowers is beautiful, Trina. They just come alive. Happy Easter to you. Have a lovely day.

Two gorgeous black & gold cards, Trina! Especially love the layered peonies!
