Create a Woodgrain Theme Friendship Card with Rinea Foil

Hi there, Martha Lucia here! Today, I have a fun card making project to share with you. I used the stamp piecing with foiled paper as a technique to create this card. To make this stamp piecing card, I used Rinea Foiled paper in pink, green and gold colors with StazOn Pigment Ink Piano Black to create a dynamic look. A single stamp with flowers coming out of an envelope suddenly takes on a new life.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Prepare your card by cutting the base of your card to 4-1/4″x11″ with a score in 5-1/2″. Cut the second layer using Mocha/Gold Glossy Rinea Foiled Paper. I cut this layer using the Stitched Woodgrain Cover Up Die from Lil’Inker Designs. Stamp the image of the stamp set Gift Enclosures from Catherine Scanlon Stamps using one single color of Rinea foiled paper and StazOn Pigment Piano Black Ink.


Step 2

Stamp the same image using different colors and textures of Rinea Foiled paper. I used gold/gold glossy for the envelope, blush starstruck for the flowers and emerald starstruck for the leaves. With scissors cut the different parts of the stamped image and paste them over the image stamped using On Point Glue and Double-sided Foam Tape.


Step 3

Resize and paste the Mocha Woodgrain layer over the card base.


Step 4

Create the sentiment for your card using a layered die set. I used the word “friend” that I cut from Gold/Gold Glossy Rinea Foiled Paper for the word mat and Fuchsia/Gold Glossy for the detailed word. Paste the two parts of the die with On Point Glue and then paste it over the decorated card base.


Step 5

Paste the gift envelope stamp over your decorated card using Double-sided Foam Tape.

Just take out a blank card base, your favorite VersaFine Clair inks, and one or two small stamps with different designs. In less than 30 minutes you’ll have a clean and simple colorful card that is perfect for any occasion!
