Oriental Card

This was a card made for my niece who loves anything oriental. It was also a good excuse to try out my new Hot Foiling Machine.
The 3 pictures were printed from some clip art on a laser printer and then each image was run though the hot foiler using purple foil - Kim's favourite colour. These were then cut to shape using a Nestabilities die cutter on a Cuttle Bug. The edges were then coloured with Milled Lavender and Dusky Concord Distress inks applied with Cut 'n' Dry foam. A larger version of each shape was cut from a piece of card that I had previously coloured with Glimmer mists. These were stuck to the back of the pictures to stiffen them up a bit.
An A4 piece of white card was scored and folded to give a concertina shape. These were faced with strips of the card used to back the pictures which had been mounted on black card to make them stand out. The front strip had a purple foiled border applied in the same way as previously mentioned.
The three pictures were then stuck in position, staggered across the width of the card. A small foiled plaque was created to be stuck on the back for the greeting and signatures.

This has been entered into the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Step Away from the Square.
