Hi, I'm sharing a new cardmaking technique for delicate or detailed cutting files over on the Silhouette UK Blog today.

In recognition of Remembrance weekend, I have used a beautiful poppy file by Hero Arts (#27110). This is my grandad who served in WW1 as a teenager.

These elegant cards are made with adhesive foil and an acetate, or acrylic window, overlaid on a printed background and mounted within an offset of the shape.  Using the Silhouette Printable Foil gives a fine foiled-effect without the need for heat or messy embossing powders. My photographs really don't do justice to the depth, dimension, and prettiness of the cards in real life.
