Drum Roll, Please! Foil Heat Transfer Christmas Card #6!

Here it is. . .my final foil heat transfer card using the card kit supplies from my October scrapbook shop class!  And, as in most of my other five cards, I finished this one at home as well, because of mojo inspiration during the class that told me I had some items at home that would enhance my finished card.

On this card, I chose a Have a Very Merry Christmas tag to use, to which I chose to add a Christmas green foil heat transfer.  My home adds were a green foil layer and a white backing cardstock to my vellum.  I followed the same plan with my green foiled tag, using green foil and punching the top with my Stampin' Up Ornate Tag Topper punch.  Though the tag topper is only built for a two-inch tag, I was able to insert my 2-1/16" larger tag into it very carefully, by holding the tag above the 2" path and an angle and watching for it on the underside of the punch...making sure it was inserted evenly from side to side and top edge to top edge.  I punch my 2-1/4" green foil backing layer in the same manner.  I was really happy with the way this turned out. . .and now with care, I can repeat this process in the future.  I added Pink Posh sequins to my shaker envelope to match my card colors.  I also added a Christmas green 5/8" double-sided satin ribbon to dress up the top of my card.  I've always like using true Christmas green rather than off shades, like olive, on my Christmas cards!
