Mojo Monday... Friends are the BEST!!!

Morning everyone!! Last night I had a chance to do the Mojo Monday challenge... what fun it was!! This card was originally started at Julie's SU! card class I have once a month. I didn't have time to finish the card, so I'm glad I waited!! I just added the 1/2 circle and Curly Label saying to complete it.

This was a Technique card that we did using "Foil Embossing". What you do is stamp the foil on the back side, using a permanent ink. (She had us use the foil seals off a cappuccino mix... heavier than aluminum!) Allow to dry. Place the foil on a foam pad with stamped image facing up. Using a stylus, etch (draw) around the stamped lines. Turn foil over and you will see a raised image!! How easy is that... check out Julie's SU! web page!!

I have a close up photo of the Foil Embossing for a better look! The stem and leaf is from the NEW SU! catty... Petal Pizzazz. The saying "are the Best" on my Curly Label punch was from SU! It's your Birthday set as I took off the Birthday part! Sneaky right?!?!? :)

Have a great Wednesday and if you have a chance remember to get some stamping time in!!! Smiles....

Such a cute card, Michelle! And, you're right...friends ARE the best, including cyber friends!

Love the technique with the flower. I've seen that before with metal sheets, which I think I bought but never used. This inspires me to get them out and give it a go!

I hope the weather is easing up for you a bit. We are finally getting some cooler temps and rain, so I'm excited!

{Hugs}to you my cyber friend.

LOVE this card. I like the bright colors, the foil embossing and the curly label punch for your sentiment square. Thanks for sharing the technique. I may have to try this. But first I have to find someone who drinks cappucino mix.

I love your color choice - work well together. The foil embossing adds just the right amount of pizzaz to the card. You rock as usual.

I'll have to try this, it looks like so much fun. I love what you did with the tag, removing "birthdays" and replacing it with "friends." The color combo is great, too. Love the style watch "retro" look from the catty. You hit it spot on!
