by Aga

Hello, everyone! It’s Aga here and today I would like to share with you a simple “just because” card using Petal Harmony Hot Foil Plate paired with the Timeless Sentiments 2 Die Set.

You don't need a special occasion to send someone a card and sending a “just because” card is a special gesture that can brighten up anyone’s day.

How to Create a Quick and Simple Just Because Card

I started off with a panel of white cardstock and created my card base. Next, I used a hot foiling technique to create my shiny background.

The Petal Harmony Hot Foil Plate is great for quick backgrounds! It features a timeless pattern of delicate flowers, adding a touch of grace and femininity to your projects. Enhance your creations with this visually striking hot foil design and our collection of hot foil rolls.

To make it even more interesting and fun, I used a hot foil machine to press Hot Foil Roll – Gold (Mirror) into a patterned paper from Celebrations 6×6 Paper Pack instead of a plain cardstock.

If you are new to the hot foiling technique, you can find out more about it in this Quick Guide to Hot Foiling.

I then trimmed the foiled piece down to fit my card base and finished my card with a sentiment from Timeless Sentiments 2 Die Set. I die cut “have a good day” sentiment five times out of purple cardstock and stacked the die-cuts together for a nice dimension.

I love making ‘Just Because’ cards! They’re so versatile and cover so many things. It’s like having a generic greeting card that can be interpreted to what the viewer sees in it 🤗💕
