Hello, We R friends. Enza here, and today I’m sharing a set of fall cards featuring the amazing Foil Quill system. How many times have you struggled trying to find the right embellishments for your projects after using up what comes in the collection? I’m obsessed with ephemera pieces, so those are the first ones to go for me. The Foil Quill system allows me to replenish my stash and have a bunch of die cuts ready to be used at any time.
Here are the cards I made. I used the gorgeous Again & Again collection by Pink Paislee. Both cards feature a horizontal design and they’re packed with beautiful gold-foiled leaves.
I started by selecting my designs from the Paige Evans USB Drive. I picked five different leaf shapes, which I imported into the Silhouette software to create a pattern. My initial idea was to fill out a 12×12 paper with the leaves and use that as card bases, but I changed my mind and decided to fussy cut them instead. The 12×12 Foil Sheets are very handy when it comes to this type of project!
For the first card, I created a big cluster behind the sentiment.
I trimmed a 5 ½ x 3 ¾ inch panel to adhere to the card base. I then cut another panel to place on top; this one measures 5 ½ x 3 inches. To create dimension, I used foam adhesive to adhere them down. After choosing my sentiment, I arranged the gold-foiled leaves behind it and, again, gave them dimension with foam dots. I finished the card with gold puffy stickers from the Again & Again collection.
The second card is very similar in terms of design, with two horizontal panels adhered together with foam adhesive.
This time I arranged the leaves in opposite corners to form two clusters. They are so pretty and shiny! Once those were in place, I added some floral die cuts and stickers, as well as a sentiment.
I love making my own embellishments with the Foil Quill. So many foil colors to choose from and designs that are versatile and fun.
I hope you enjoyed this post and have found some inspiration in it.
Have a great day!
