Gold Joy Nativity

Gold Joy Nativity

Day 8 of the Holiday Card Workshop 2022 focused on Foiling. One of the lessons was called “Hot Foiling for the Win” taught by Yana Smakula. I have used hot foil plates before, but she shared several tips and tricks for successful foiling which I found helpful.

For my card, I used the Spellbinders “Plaid Tidings Background” plate with gold foil. I do own a solid hot foil plate (to create my own foiled/gold card stock) but had already cut the CottageCutz Joy Nativity die cut from the metallic gold card stock so I used that (and the scrap from which I had cut it) for my focal image and mat. Gina K Designs Chrismas Pine and white was also used.


Day 5 of the Holiday Card Workshop 2022 focused on Using Scraps.

Jennifer McGuire, and Koren Wiskman taught two lessons with really cute ideas for using scraps to create holiday cards which I will definitely need to try when I have a bit more time, but I had some scraps on my desk (including a messed up foiled panel from the above project) and a “Tree Punch” from Stampin’ Up, so I whipped up this quick and easy card.

The red trees were embossed with the “Subtle” embossing folder from Stampin’ Up. I used my score board to deboss the background. The greeting was foiled with a hot foil plate from the “Holiday Sentiments Series 2” set and the scrap of plaid was made with the “Plaid Tidings Background” hot foil plate, both by Spellbinders. Gold foil was used along with GKF Christmas Pine and Cherry Red card stock.

  1. Beautiful hot foiled background for your nativity card. The hot foiling is so elegant and professional looking. Great card design for your scraps card.


  2. The plaid hot foiling looks almost as if you have die cut the gold section and added it on top of the other part. I never have much success with foiling no matter what I do so admire it when others do it well. Beautiful cards.
