  2. Carol Carriveau

    Absolutely love your design, Mary – LOVE gold….sold!

  3. Love the colours together, simple and clean

  4. The gold foil will bend while it heats . . . however, its easy to adhere and lays flat when you do! Mary

  5. I’m so impressed with your embossing on the gold foil. There are no specks of random powder, no buckling of the gold foil… you are just whiz at that! I’m loving the gold washi tapes!
