Here are the end results I got - (after some practice.)
Another challenge is getting the "foil shine" to photograph! What looks white is really a beautiful silver. The gold semi worked.
The close ups are a little better, but still not like they look in real life. For the background stamping, I used STAMPlorations Layered Holly [sold out].
I just love the font of these foil plates [yes, those needed to be purchased also]. I like that these cards look "store bought" with the embossed lettering. They are also nice and flat for mailing.
Bottom line question - am I happy with this addition to my stamp room? Probably not so much. A laminator and [all the regular] foil I have would of been sufficient for as much as I will be using foiling.... That said, because I now own it, I will force myself to use it! :) Live and learn....
