Foiled Christmas Pear

This card was created using Dreamweaver stencils, inks and Stampee Transparent foil. The foil is the Mirage pattern which gives a diagonal striped effect. It's a little paler in the picture than in real life and is designed to look very 'Olde Worlde'. The pear was dry embossed onto cream cardstock then coloured with pigment ink. It was then covered with Versamark ink, covered with Stampee heat and bond powder which was then melted with a heat gun. The foil was then placed over the design and run through a pouch laminator (without the pouch) between two pieces of paper. The foil was removed when cool and the other designs were stencilled around the outside of the pear. I filled in the stencilled areas with ink the same colours as the designs to fill them in a bit. Any ink that got onto the pear was removed with a clean cloth. Extra ink was smudged around the edges of the card and in between the designs.


  1. What an absolutely beautiful card, Julie. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Beautiful.

  2. You have been busy. It is a beautiful card and the foil shows well in the photo. Do you ever sleep?
