August CCC Reveal

Today is the day for the August Card Chain Challenge reveal.

My card went to Arlene in California.

One of the options this month was foil so I made this card:

I think I have probably cheated a bit as I used foiled card but I decided it didn't matter. The cover die is from Altenew and I made this card first and then used the frames left over from the inlaying to make these.

I do enjoy using this technique, it can be a real fiddle but the pieces from this die are a good size and it is very satisfying when it is done. The hardest thing about this was the heat embossing on the foil, I did it 3 times and none of them were perfect. My close up picture doesn't show the heat embossing, I wonder why!

This month I received this lovely card from Lucille:

Don't those pies make your mouth water?

This is a real eye catcher Hilary, beautifully done! The one from the "leftover" frame looks beautiful too!

This is stunning, Hilary! I love the shiny green and copper! I actually enjoy doing these inlaid types of cards. It's like doing a jigsaw puzzle, which I love, but don't do very often since I've discovered this hobby, lol! Hugs, Darnell
