Sew Sweet Card with Rinea Foils

Hi everyone, I am participating in the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop this month.  And this month we are working with Rinea Foils.  Rinea Foil is made up of a thin sheet of paper sandwiched between two layers of thin aluminum foil - the paper gives it sturdiness and stiffness while the foil gives it the shininess and the malleability to maintain the shape however you bend or fold it.

I know I've said it before, but these foils are absolutely amazing!  Check out all those gorgeous colors!

If you haven't worked with Rinea Foils, I've got an amazing card to share with you. 

Rinea Foils die cut beautifully and easily no matter the size or intricacy of the dies.  I paired some fun stamps from Rubber Dance - Sew Sweet, with a collection of Spellbinders dies - All Stitched Up.

I created the background for my card using the stamps from the Sew Sweet set.  I wanted to create a pattern effect by randomly stamping the images.  I lightly inked the panel and matted it with black cardstock before adding it to the card.

Next, I used assorted foils, both embossed and glossy, to die cut all the elements for my card.  How fun that all these elements came together effortlessly.  I even die cut 2 pairs of scissors and placed them to appear as if they were open and ready to cut the pattern.

I wanted all the sewing elements to pop, so I placed them atop a black cardstock oval, then adhered them to a large oval die cut from Embossed Violet Foil.

The sentiment was added at the end with foam adhesives for dimension.

What do you think?
