New Beginnings - Purple Foiled Chevron Card

Hot foiling creates such neat end results and the background of this card was foiled with a purple colour using a chevron hot foil plate. 

The sentiment - there is beauty in new beginnings - is so appropriate for the current situation. I think most of us feel like we need/want a new beginning after almost two years of struggling with Covid and all the changes it has brought. 

The foiled background was adhered to black cardstock and then to a white card base. The flowers and leaves were stencilled using deep teals and purples and die cut. The images were added around the corners of the card with the sentiment in the center. A few silver gems were added around the card. 

Products used are as follows: 

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Black Cardstock (CTMH), Neenah Solar White Cardstock 

Stamps: In the Meadow plus die and layering stencils (PFS)

Inks: Intense Black (Hero Arts), Flirty Fuchsia, Grape Crush, Royal Treatment, Aquatini, All that Jazz (Catherine Pooler)

Accessories: Chevron Hot Foil Plate, Silver Gems, Foiled Sentiments (PFS), Purple Foil (Spellbinders), Craft Foam

Your purple foiling is so pretty, Alyson, as are your beautifully coloured flowers! Yes, we could all use a new beginning, but it will not be happening any time soon, at least around here. We are expecting a tighter lockdown announcement today.
