Happy Hello Creative Scrapbook Magazine friends, Annette Allen here with you today and I am so excited to be here sharing a little or a lot of Pink & Main. I have created a fun foiling card using Pink & Main Cheerfoil and the Mini MINC Foiling Machine.
Such an easy way to create an easy background with lots of sparkle and shine, so let’s get started.

Take one of the Oh Craft Foilables and a piece of Shattered Blue Cheerfoil. Gently wipe the foilable and the Cheerfoil with a clean cloth or a brush to wipe away any dust before placing into the clear sleeve and running it through your Mini MINC Foiling Machine. Before you peel your Cheerfoil from the Foilable make sure to let cool completely and peel away slowly to reveal the magic of foiling.
Using a light pink, yellow and blue ink, blend the Foilable background you just foiled. I did not add any ink to my brushes I used used what was already on it. I was not trying to get a dark blend of color. If you are inking your brush, make sure to use a light hand when blending. After you have the ink as you like it, take a clean cloth and wipe over the top to remove any ink that might be on the foil part of your background.
Pick a piece of the designer paper from the Fun Pastels paper pad and die cut the large frame from the Dotted Cover die set. This paper pad is full of fun patterns so any pattern will work for this card. Stamp out some of the images from the new Oh Craft stamp set on a separate piece of white cardstock using black ink and color the images using your favorite medium. I colored these images using Copic Sketch Markers. (Colors listed above) If you like you can also add a little white gel pen here and there to highlight the images even more.
Die cut the colored images using the coordinating Oh Craft dies.Die cut on a separate piece of white cardstock the small circle and the small scallop circle twice on a piece of River Walk colored cardstock from the Layered Scallops Circle Die set. Adhere the scalloped circles together using Pink & Main EZ Squeeze Craft Glue. Make sure to not line up the scalloped circles, you want to oﬀ lay them so it creates the perfect scalloped circle.
Stamp the sentiment from the Oh Craft stamp set on a separate piece of white cardstock using black ink and then die cut using the Oh Craft coordinating die set. Die cut the sentiment die only two more times. We will be adhering all these pieces together. Line up and adhere using liquid glue.
Create your card base from white cardstock A2 size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). Take the die cut scalloped background that we die cut and adhere it to your card base using Pink & Main EZ Squeeze Craft Glue.
Take your fun background that you foiled and trim it down to 3 1/2 x 4 1/2). Add some Pink & Main foam tape to the back of your background and adhere it to your card base with the Fun Pastel background.
Create your scene using the colored Oh Craft images in the scalloped circle using foam tape and liquid glue. Add the sentiment to the center of the images. Adhere the fun scalloped circle to the center of your card using liquid glue.
Happy Pink & Main Crafting!
