Another new product release

Well you must be getting sick and tired of all these , and I apologise for swearing, Christmas cards. But there's more to show, and you haven't seen half of it yet!!
This card is showing the Brand new Foiling technique My Craft Studio have devised. A completely foiled topper, yet you can still see the picture. It is NOT Dufex! It doesn't have the iridescence of dufex, and isn't intended to!
So to the card: A base card base, scored to form a drop in frame, which I removed. Metallic Twine, secured in the fold of the card to dangle the foiled topper from Jump rings.
The outside of the card was stamped with a V&A Christmas Border stamp in Versamark and silver dollar embossing powder, then coloured with Tim Holtz Fired Brick distress ink.
The inside has the same stamp in the fired brick, but isn't embossed.
Due to removing such a large piece of card, the frame can become unstable, and want to pray on you, so to stop it, I added a couple of folded pieces of card inside to stop it sliding down with the weight of the topper, which also allows the Topper to swing freely, and catch the light in any small breeze.
I LOVE these toppers, they are so Luxurious, and they really catch the light, I for one will have the old card ready for Wednesday I can tell you, I Nnnnneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed these toppers!!
And they will be available 1-4pm on QVC on Wednesday!
more later, lol
