Idea # 1 – Hot Foil Plate Blended Background

The Magic Burst Hot Foil Plate makes either a great centerpiece or a fabulous background for a card.  So for my first design, I chose to use it in the background, but I brought it to life by blending some beautiful colors over top.

Idea # 2 – Hot Foil Plate Focal Point

For my second design, I decided to change things up and I only used a portion of the design. Yes, I actually die cut the image to create a focal point in the background.
