Hello! It’s Gracie Chavez with a new video tutorial to share today for Mix It Up Monday using new products from Rebekah Meier Designs line to create a mixed media butterfly card. I’m also going to be showing you today how to make a mottled foil background for your handmade cards with the new Mixed Media Foam Sheets! This technique is super easy, doesn’t require a laminator and it will make your backgrounds pop every time.

    Oh what a wonderful tutorial Gracie. I have used a similar foil technique with pastes, but using it with double-sided adhesives is Brilliant! I am off to go play with this right now! And what a beautiful card you created – thank you for sharing!!
