How to Add a Touch of Magic to Ink Blending

Today, I'm using the brand new Deco Fan Hot Foil Plate to add a little bit of sparkle and create two beautiful DIY wedding cards.

The Deco Fan Hot Foil Plate is perfect for pairing with floral layering dies, floral stamps, sentiment dies, and so much more. Just select your favorite hot foil roll, add your focal point and sentiment, and you will have a gorgeous Art Deco-inspired project! Enhance your creations with this visually striking hot foil design and our collection of hot foil rolls.

I added a touch of ink blending to my florals, which I created using some soft colored cardstock and the Pink Star Tulip Layering Die Set. By starting with a soft colored cardstock, I can create a gorgeous ink blend without having to ink blend the entire die-cut.

Tip! Using ink colors in the same color family creates a beautiful blend with very little effort.
