Further adventures in foiling

Here is my latest DT card for Foil Play. The stamp is an old unmounted one - I bought it to make my daughter's engagement card and she's now married with two children. I can't remember where it came from but the vintage film clip style suggests it must have been The Artistic Stamper or Crafty Individuals.

Anyway, I stamped it in black, and then carefully went over all the stamped areas of the central heart with a red Quickie Glue Pen, left it to dry and then foiled it with red foil. Inevitably for such an intricate design, I missed glueing one or two spots but it was easy to touch up with the glue pen and foil the missed areas.

I layered it onto a DL card (why do we see so few DL cards at the moment? I think the tall thin shape looks very elegant) and added one of the new Easy Peely Sentiments from La Pashe to which I added a red peel-off border, partly to make it stand out and partly because the shiny finish jarred with the matt surface of the card.
