A couple of months ago, a friend of mine asked me if I’d make her a few cards for a few different events she had coming up.  One of them was her daughter Imogen’s First Holy Communion.  Imogen is quite a girly girl so I thought lots of glitter and shine would be right up her street.  I printed what I wanted for the front of the card onto a panel of white card using my laser printer then ran it through the Minc machine with silver foil.  I created a square card base and put an overlay on it using foiled acetate from We R Memory Keepers (love this product).  To finish I cut a strip of glitter card and also die cut a bow using the Perfect Bow die from Simon Says Stamp and added a little diamond cross to the centre.

    It is so pretty Caryn! I was wondering, how did you attach the foiled acetate? Only in the middle under the focal panel? I have a colourful pad too, but hardly use it as the glue would show through. Thanks so much! Hugs from Budapest, Zsofi

    This is gorgeous, Caryn! My Hubby got me a Minc for my birthday and I already ordered a few different colored foils in anticiption of Christmas. This gives me yet another idea!
