Pink Grunge Foiled Birthday

Todays card is based on Mary's Sketch #3 over at Cardz TV.  Today I was playing around with a new technique by foiling die-cuts with the Essential Glue Pad and using no heat and with no foiling machine.  I tried this on a designer paper that I realized it was too hard to make out the words with the sporadic prints all over it so I decided it would be better if I covered with foil so I could still use it as I hate to waste paper or cardstock lol. 
So I am not sure if the glossy finish on this pattern paper is what caused the foil not to stick everywhere but I am assuming so.  I thought it still looked cool in a sort of a grunge way so I thought I would try to make a card it would suit.  Here is what I came up with...
It is hard to tell in the photo but the foil is a rose gold and the places it didn't stick to are mostly the hot pink shining through so I kind of like it for this card.  I used a pencil to trace around the metal Happy Birthday Gift die so I could cut a shadow layer in black on my SNC2, came out perfect!  Down at the bottom of the card I didn't need a sentiment Banner since my Die-cut says it all, so I created a cool banner type embellishment with some of my dies.  I added foam tape under the top star and then placed a dew drop on top.  I also placed a dew drop on the center of the bow on the gift.

Such a fun simple Birthday card to add to my stash, as a matter of fact it was so simple I decided to throw another similar one together while I had out all of the supplies.  This time adding some cool glitter effects on the Birthday die cut and changing up the banner a bit and rotating the stripe paper.  Oh I also used Simply Charmed embossing folder for this one.
Thanks for stopping by my little crafty place!  I hope you have a wonderful and crafty weekend!  ~ Eva Scraps
