Springtime Foils Box Frame Floral Card

Today I have some more of the second release Sale-a-Bration items from Stampin' Up! to show you, and they are fantastic.

Foiled Card, with Gold, Rose Gold and Silver foiling on a, not quite, gloss card, and I do mean card, this is not paper. The surface is slick and will take both Classic Ink/Stampin' Write Markers, and Blends. As the title of this post suggests, the paper is called Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. It is FREE with a qualifying order of just £45 before P&P.

Springtime Foils Box Frame Floral Card

Today I am showing you the effect with Blends, but I have another project coming soon, that uses the Stampin' Write Markers, and trust me when I say the result is stunning.

In the video I show you how to make the box frame, which once you get your head around the basic measurements, is really easy. That said, I have not yet worked out how to do the measurements in metric, I am working on it and will try to bring you a video soon with these. In the meantime, to calculate the size of card you need, decide on the inside measurement of your frame and then add 5", so in this example, the inside measurement of my frame was 3", so if you add 5" you need to start with a pice of card measuring 8 x 8".

Score on all sides as 1/2, 1, 1-1/2 and 2" then on the top and bottom score at 2-1/2", but only to the second score line from the edge. This is where you really need to watch the video to see what is cut away and what is left in place.

I hope you enjoy the project and have fallen in love with the Springtime Foil DSP as much as I have; this will be appearing in my shopping basket on more than one occassion I think!

Unfortunately the Showcase Builder I normally use for Stampin' Up! Products does not appear to have the Foil Paper listed just yet, so here is a direct link to my store for this item:
