Kylie Blog Highlights Timeless Tropical. This evening I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Blog Highlights again.

On the subject of which, I would be VERY grateful if you could hop over to Kylie’s post and vote for my entry.

I have grabbed the Tropical Oasis Suite and some foil to make this card. It was such fun making it, particularly doing the inlaid Copper Foil for the base of the Pineapple, I knew I wanted something in the gaps and had one of those ‘moments’. I hope you agree that the Copper works well against the Gold Foil.
I used Copper Embossing Powder on Gold Foil for the sentiment. To get a more raised result I did two layers of the powder. There are some areas that did not get embossed, but I don’t think it matters.
To attach the Copper inlay I added Tear & Tape behind the Gold Die cut and then cut a further fruit in Copper. To begin with the pieces would not move across. Never wanting to give up without a fight, I ran the two layers and the die through my die cutter again. The result was better than I could have hoped.
Not only did the pieces move across, but the embossing seemed clearer too. I am going to have to remember this for the future, particularly as the stamps and dies are carrying over, but are NOT Bundled. If you want this set, and it is gorgeous, then NOW would great time to order them and save 10%.
Before I leave you, Just a reminder that I would be thrilled if you could vote for my card over on Kylie’s Blog post. The link is here again for you:
