Chicken Wire Frame Deocorated

Chicken Wire Frame Decorated

My daughter bought me a couple of Darcie Craft Wood Frames with chicken wire. I decorated my first one today. I wanted make something to do with summer on one frame. This is what I came up with. All the images were printed to my laser printer then cut out in Cricut Design Space. Then I foiled them with my Anna Griffin Minc.  I found the cutest little clothes pins in the craft section at Walmart. This is how it turned out! I love it!!

Just Because Card

Just Because Card


I used the Anna Griffins Garden Cards and Embellishments digital cartridge images in Cricut Design Space software.
I set the file to print to my laser printer then cut on the Cricut Explore. I used gold Minc Foil for the leaves and roses. 
I used Minc rose foil for the butterfly. Pictured below is what the file looks like in Cricut Design Space.

Foil Love Card

Foiled Butterfly Card

I foiled Anna Griffin Butterfly in Rose Foil. The butterfly was part of  an auto ship from HSN of Anna Griffin's Minc die cuts to foil. I printed the word Love on my laser printer and foiled it with Rose foil. I stamped using Memory Box Fluttering Stamp and IndigoBlu Flitter Glu.  After letting the glue set for a short time I foiled the image in Rose foil. 
I colored some of the butterflies with the Wine colored Cricut pen. The Wine Cricut pen matches the Rose Foil perfectly.  
It takes a lot practice to perfect this technique. 
The trick is the set time of the glue to dry and knowing when to lift the foil off.

Pool Party Invitation

Pool Party Invitation

I designed the file in Cricut Design Space design software.
I printed the design out on my laser printer.
I then cut the design out using the Cricut Explore machine. 
Next I foiled the glass with the Minc machine. I thought arrow washi tape was a nice touch for the invite sending the message that the party is this way.
