Foil Christmas cards

I went to a Stamping Conference and got a foil machine. I was like a kid in a candy shop when I saw all the goodies that they had made and the sparkles and shine....I couldn't resist. So since there were a couple challenges with metallics and silver/gold I thought I would do a couple quick cards.  Then since I had my computer, space heater, Alexa and then turned on the foil machine I blew out my power in my office....argh. So once I got the electricity turned back on and a few things turned off I pulled out the foil.  Here are my first two cards.

Cardstock plain & glitter:  Darice
Foil:  Creative Vision: Silver and Queen's Crown

Oh Lisa, yikes on the power going out! I was right there with you thinking oh no! Glad you got the foil machine up and running because WOW!! Out of this world gorgeous! I was so lucky to be able to visit the in real life GKD store on my trip to Wisconsin and they had this in the front of the store - lucky you to get to play with these fun toys! I look forward to seeing more foilin! :)

Wow, these look so gorgeous! The snowflake one is my favourite but they are both beautiful! Love the foil look, very trendy now! How exciting to get all the new products - can't wait to see more of your foiling cards! You'll have to turn the space heater off to use the foiling machine, I guess. Is it a laminator?

LOL! I learned I cannot run the vacuum with the air conditioner at the same time.

These are so pretty and impressive. I've seen the "foiled" cards before but I don't know if I'm ready to take the leap. I'll keep an eye out for your creations before deciding.
