How to Do Hot Foiling with Dies

I started by heating Dainty Blooms Cover Die in my hot foiling machine. I then added some foil, shiny side down, and a piece of white cardstock. Then, I ran this through my die-cutting machine. Once this was done, I had a beautiful gold foiled outline of the cutting lines of the die transferred onto the cardstock.

Afterward, I went ahead and colored the panel using Woodless Coloring Pencils. I used Peach Perfect, Coral Bliss, and Heart Beat pencils for the flowers, Fresh Lemon, Maple Yellow, and Orange Cream pencils for the flower centers, Limeade, Grass Field, and Shadow Creek pencils for the leaves, and Desert Night pencil for the background. When the coloring was complete, I trimmed the piece to size and adhered it to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base.

I really wish you could see the foiling on this in real life as the photos don't really do it justice!
