  1. I love how economical you were with the foil…not wasting a bit of it! And I don’t blame you – – the foil is so fabulous. It’s one of my favorite of the specialty media products, fo’ sho’. I’ve already told you this on Facebook, but I absolutely LOVE your cards. You’d never in a million years know they were your first attempt at card-making. Also, it’s so inspiring to see the whole slew of cards you received in the swap. What a talented group of women that Silhouette Challenge Facebook group is! ;-) Pinning this now!

    • Thanks so much, Lauren! Foil is my favorite, too. I love shiny things :-) I think it was beginner’s luck that I came up with such a simple and easy design that looks more difficult than it actually was…but now that I’ve got all these beautiful cards to use as inspiration, I think I could try to tackle some more!

  2. Now I’m off to find gold foil! Love these cards so happy I received one. Also I absolutely love the hello font and how its offset.

    Thanks for featuring my card! Can’t wait to finish my post!

    • Yay! The foil is my favorite – so easy to work with for such a big wow factor! And I love your card, it will be hard to give away, haha!

  3. Great tutorial and way of using negative! I love your cards and you got lots of beautiful cards!
    I love making cards and always rejoicing when I receive handmade cards, too :D

    • Thanks so much, Helen! And yes, I can’t believe how many beautiful cards I got…it will be hard to give them away, but I know how special it is to receive a handmade card!

    • Thanks Pam! Foil is probably my favorite of anything at the Silhouette store…it is just so darn easy to get a nice, clean cut and neat designs! And it looks great with printing on it, even just in black ink. You should definitely try it!

  4. You had me at gold foil! Wow what a brilliant design. Love how you get a different look depending on the cardstock. I’ll have to add that foil to my shopping list asap. Thanks for the inspiration, Meredith!

  5. Such super projects! Your swap cards look super. I especially love the look of the foil – and the fact that they’re great for anybody (male or female)!

    Love those DIY labels too. I’m going to have to give those a go!!
