Foiled Merry

Julie Warner –

Well the MIX challenge on Splitcoast sounded really interesting so I thought I’d give it a go. I totally messed up the first little Merry I did because I was impatient w/ the stylus part. Apparently patience is not my strong suit. On the second try, I bypassed the stylus part entirely. After die cutting 3 sets of the MERRY letters and gluing them together then onto a strip of c/s I sprayed it w/ adhesive and put my foil over it.

Here’s the fun part…I put it on my embossing mat and ran it thru the Sizzix. That’s a real time saver! And it worked better than me w/ the stylus. Instead of paint, I used some red Copics to color around the letters. Then I sprayed another piece of c/s, attached another piece of foil and die cut it w/ the viney background. Feels funny to not have used any stamps or inks 🙂
