Hello Altenew friends! It's Laurie here with a quick and easy card idea with lots of shine.

Two things I love in Altenew's crafty supply lineup are their hot foil plates and their Brushed Metallic Cardstock. Put these 2 things together with some shiny hot foil, and you can create simple, elegant cards.

Easy Card Idea: Add Shine with Hot Foil Plates and Metallic Cardstock

To create this card front, I used the Golden Days Hot Foil Plate and some Rose Gold Foil on a piece of pale pink cardstock. Altenew has a stencil that you can purchase to color in this big, gorgeous bloom, but I wanted to keep it simple with the colors of cardstock and foil.

The dimension of the card front from the card base really makes your cards pop!  

To finish off the card, I used Altenew's Brushed Rose Metallic Cardstock and die cut “hello” from Simple Greetings Die Set. The shine in that cardstock is amazing! Cutting a second layer of fun foam to back the cardstock helps give dimension to the sentiment.
