This month we are partnering with Rinea Foil and I designed this sweet, vintage mini book using die cutting techniques to add foiled accents!

What makes this product special is that each piece is actually 3 layers: a paper layer sandwiched between 2 colorful pieces of aluminum foil. This gives the material a paper like sturdiness with the malleability of foil! It is ideal for making 3-D objects and is great for embossing and die cutting.
I started by creating a little book with Eileen Hull's new Notebook die and paper from Stamperia. Very sweet, right?
Time to add a little pizazz with Rinea Foil!
My technique of choice today is die cutting. I want to adhere those die cuts quickly and easily so I backed the Starstruck Turquoise foil with double sided adhesive. This turns all of my die cuts into stickers!
I started die cutting tiny stars and sprinkled them down the cover to accentuate the stars printed on the paper.
Next I used a 3-D Impresslit Folder, which die cuts and embosses at the same time. After peeling off the release paper I adhered it to the spine of my little fairy notebook.
I had a couple of signatures for the inside of my Notebook that needed a little "something". Rinea to the rescue! Using more of the Starstruck Turquoise foil I die cut a single butterfly.
I separated all of the elements, then used the same butterfly die to emboss watercolor paper. I carefully adhered each tiny piece from the die cut into place on the front of my signature.
I used inks to create a background, a black pen to define the butterfly, and a stamped sentiment to fit my theme. Done!
Moving on, I applied the die cut butterfly to the front of the second signature. I used a sanding block and very lightly scuffed up the foil before I inked over it to coordinate with the aged appearance of the cover...
...and finished off with a stamped sentiment!
Here's another quick look at the cover...
...and the signatures.
