Anniversary card

Saw this card in the Silhouette store and I just had to get it. It's so Cute!!!
Its for my brother and sister in law's anniversary.
it'll fit in an A2 envelope. I used AC silver and gold cardstock for the toaster and adapted the pattern so I'd have an outside and inside piece of buttered toast.




















































 I love this toaster/card!!!

Everything is from the silhouette store. I layered the big fish and print & cut the lil fishes.
Of course the lil fishes represent the children. Its an A2 card, I used foam tape.































this one is for my nephew who had twins 2 months ago- 1st time dad

AG Minc machine

Two weeks ago Anna Griffin was on HSN with a Minc 6" foiling machine (mini minc).
I've seen a lot of youtube videos on this foiling and was very interested.
I'm a card maker and this mini size I couldn't resist!!!
It arrived late yesterday, so I played with it this morning.
I LOVE the mini size, it sits on top of my jetmax cubes.
 WARNING! I only had it on about 15 minutes and my jetmax cube was very warm, so I went and got a glass trivet out of the kitchen to put it on.
















Here's some samples I played with:
on the left the rose gold and on the right the gold
















so SHINY!!!!
















this is the gold- you can't see it but there is quite a bit of blank spots and I even ran it thru again and it didn't help much. The setting was at 3.




















this is the rose gold and I reread the directions (machines will very) so I put the setting to 4 and YES! much better!!!




















I LOVE FOILING!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not a fan of Anna Griffin designs and I got the auto ship, I think I'll cancel the auto ship and get a laser printer....I have a Silhouette so WOW!!! the designs would be endless!!!
If you have the Cricut Explore you can print your designs also.
AG also has glitter sheets - I need to go play....bye - HAPPY FOILING!!
