Foil Transfer Gel Backgrounds

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s cards showcase a foiled background… I love the look of foil on dark card stocks. To achieve this look, I applied some of THIS transfer gel through THIS stencil.

For the first card, I used THIS gorgeous rainbow foil… For the second card,...
