Foiling a few roses

I'm participating in a swap for cards made with
foil or metal accents.

and got busy making a few cards for the swap and birthday card for my BFF.

For the first few cards, I simple cut out the large rose die directly from the
adhesive sheet using my Big Shot.

I then very, very carefully removed the backing and applied the rose to the thin
black cardstock and removed the remaining release paper and applied the foil directly onto
the adhesive, rubbing briskly to make sure it was well adhered. 

I stamped a sentiment from the same Rose Wonder stamp set 

After completing a couple of cards this way, I decided I wanted more lift to the rose, so I 
added the adhesive sheets to both sides of a piece of black cardstock and diecut the rose.

I then adhered the rose to another piece of black cardstock and foiled again.

I also made a couple of cards using the negative pieces from the rose diecuts.

This is the adhesive/cardstock/adhesive negative pieces applied to cardstock layer then cut
around and added to a piece of patterned paper using lots of foam tape.
Here's a side view to show the color of the foil better and the dimension.

This one is the flat (adhesive sheet only) negatives applied to a card front.

If you don't own a laminating machine or a Minc, don't be afraid to jump on the foiling
train, there's plenty of ways to foil without using these tools. 
Try any strong double sided tape or two-way glue pen to create designs and foil them.

Happy Crafting
