Foiled Autumn Sparkle and Shine with Gina K and Therm O Web

I wish I could show you this card in real life because it is impossible to capture the sparkle of both the background and the foiled leaves in still pictures. I mixed some glimmer mist with some Pearlex powder and spattered the mix on a black card front for the lovely background on this card. Then I stamped Penny Black's Filigree Foliage Leaves stamps with Versamark on some fall colored scraps of cardstock. I poured some fine detail embossing powder on them and heat set them with a heat gun. Did you know that embossing powder will melt in a laminator and so you can foil any stamped image with any of the gorgeous foils from Therm O Web? I used my two of my favorites Fancy Foils from Gina K and Therm O Web: Radiant Red and Gold Sequin. Any foil is beautiful, but I especially love the ones that glitter and sparkle when the card is moved like these two. Here is a closeup view:

I just love all that sparkle and shine! I also used a Gina K Therm O Web Birthday Essentials Foil-Mate foiled with the Radiant Red Fancy Foil for the sentiment popped up in the center of the card.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday. Thanks for helping me #share the joy of creativity!
