Todo foiled doily


I was commissioned to make an 80th birthday card for a lady. I had used my Todo with the doily letterpress to foil on to a piece of Centura pearl card and had been wondering what to use it for. The big bloom in the middle was from Hobbycraft, various other bits from stash. I used two different corner punches to bring just a bit more interest, mounting on to a rich blue mirror card that matched the foiling.
