    Now that is a gorgeous skyline in teal foil with black shadow! What a great idea! Love the foreground die cuts, too. Can’t wait to use this technique on larger die cuts! Thank you for the camping lesson ♥

    That was a pretty card with the team foil NY skyline. It makes me want to go to New York was it supposed to make me want to foil? because it did that too! Very pretty

    Love it! I can’t wait to start playing with foil. Believe it or not, I have never tried. I wish I had bought that NY skyline while you still had it. Major regret!

    Did you know that putting some matte multi medium as a carrier will foil through the minc 🙂
    Imagine the possibilities .
    You just put it on wherever you need to foil let it dry and pass it through the minc 🙂 just as good as toner paper .
    Great video

    Wow love that foiling especially with the New York skyline!! I have recently purchased the mini minc machine but have not used it much yet. You have made me see the potential of using it with my dies and the toner sheets. Can’t wait to try something now!

    While I don’t have the tools to add foul, I did use gold embossing to stamped images and along the second layer of the card. Really liked the cityscape in the video.

    I don’t have a Mink machine, nor laser printer, but I am going to try adhesive backed paper and see what I get. I like my MFT dies and new ways to use them!

    Love this technique with foil. Loved the idea of putting the added card stock behind the foiled piece to give it a shadow. I will be using this!
