Brutus Monroe Blog Hop | DecoFoil

Hey everyone! It's Wednesday and we have another Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team blog hop. For this week we are using some of the Decofoil items! Make sure to check out the entire hop list down below. 

For this card I used the Snow Day designer toner sheets. I cut out the 4 squares of the snowflakes from the sheet and used my laminator to add the Gold Static foil to the snowflakes with the white background. 

So this is where my mistake happened. Since I didn't cover the other snowflakes with the black ground the toner from those transferred onto my parchment paper. lol. So when I ran the Snow Day toner sheet square back through the laminator with the Red Static transfer foil, it did not stick fully. But it did create a cool distress red foil. Which I ended liking anyways! So lessons learned.... always cover your toner sheets and sometimes mistakes turn out pretty cool!! HA!

To add some more shimmer I used the Pearl Aqua Pigment on the white snowflakes and let that dry while I die cut a small tag from Lunch Bag card stock. The Thank you sentiment is from the Simply Sentimental set and heat embossed with Alabaster embossing powder. 

This card is 5x5 inches and I used Not Your Mamma's cardstock for the base. That is some thick cardstock! I trimmed down a piece of the buffalo plaid paper from the Winter Cabin paper pad and adhered to the card base.  

I've had this cream twine with gold strands in it for a while and wrapped the snow day foiled square with it, which I think makes it look like a present! I added the tag before making a bow. I added some foam tape (not the good kind, so I don't list it.) to pop up the square snowflake pane, which helps with the bulk of the twine on the back. 

I have a new video up today, a craft haul! Which includes some Brutus Monroe goodies! Check it out here.

I hope you enjoyed this little card! 

Hop along with the rest of the team.

  1. I love the vibrant and rustic look of this card! I agree -- the "oops" on the black toner squares still looks really cool.
