Stampin’ Up! Red Foil Sheets are simply sumptuous for the holidays and the perfect WOW! for today’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA268).

Be inspired by what the Pals Paper Arts Resident Artists have designed using this sketch and play along here.


  • Check out the intricate details of this die cut ornament.  I layered it over Red Foil Sheets and popped up my white layer on Stampin’ Dimensionals, taking advantage of the “negative space.”

  • Save 15% when you purchase the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies and Embellished Ornaments stamp set as a bundle.  They landed on the list of My Favorite Things from the holiday catalog.

  • I cropped more of the Red Foil Sheets for the envelope liner, a really rich, elegant touch.

  • Be sure to use fairly clean cutting plates for the liner or your old cuts on the plate will leave an impression.  You’ll also want to score the fold for the envelope flap since the Red Foil is thick.  Alternate idea – Try Real Red Envelope Paper (139604).  It’s not  shiny but better suited for mass producing!

  1. Hi Jenny: I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach the detailed ornament die cut to the red foil. Pretty straight forward. Thanks for your wonderful comment! M

  2. I love this card! whats the best way to adhere the die cut to the paper? Maybe a 1 minute to wow here – this is great –

    Love your work Mary!

  3. SOOOO in love with the new Red Foil paper….and sure makes a spectacular card!!!

  4. My, oh my what a lovely card! It is un- describable (ly) beautiful. Suck a beautiful card. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  5. Mary, your card today is STUNNING! Quick question, did you put the popped up white layer on first and then line up the intricate white ornament inside onto the red foil? Also did you use the new fine tip glue pen to attach the intricate one? Thank you for sharing with us! It is beautiful!

    • Definitely on the Fine Tip Glue Pen, Shari. I added the popped up white layer first over the red foil and attached the white, intricate ornament carefully, through the window. A little tricky but doable. Keep the fine tip adhesive to a minimum so it doesn’t slide.

  6. I sure appreciate your comments. A quicker way to create this look would be to use the solid ornament die and crop in red foil and layer the detailed ornament over it in Whisper White Pop them both UP on Stampin’ Dimensionals vs. using the negative of the solid ornament, like I did.

  7. Ok Mary, I had to pick myself from the floor and sit down again after I saw this card!!!!! in one word…..GORGEOUS, AMAZING, ELEGANT, PERFECT, INCREDIBLE!!!!! Ok, 5 words!! The red foil paper gives this pristine card such a rich look, thank you so much for sharing.
