Another Foiled Christmas Card

As I was playing with foil I wondered if I could print an image and stamp over it before foiling.  Would the ink make the foil not stick?  Not at all--worked like a charm!   Would the foil be hard to see?  Depends on the color of the foil and the background.   I liked it best with a soft background and bold foil.

Yet another way to use foil in my cards. Imagine the layering effects with some ink behind and some on top of the foil.  Swoon!

The Details:  Black Deco foil, Hammermill color copy 80# cardstock, Recollections 110lb white cardstock base, snowflake clipart, Hero Arts Soft Granite, Momenta background stamp

I'm entering this in Jingle Belles Text Me, Fab n Funky #293 Christmas, The Male Room #29 Monochromatic, Holly Jolly #66 Getting Sentiment-al
