The theme for Day 1 of My Favorite Things' Camp Create (Session 2) is "Fantastic Foiling." While foiling is not necessary to participate (the challenge is to use something shiny), I decided to get out my too-little-used Minc Mini machine and do some foiling!
For my design, I used Sketch #SC588 from Splitcoaststampers. I first ran a sheet of 6x6" Minc star patterned paper through my Minc Mini with some red foil. I cut that down to 4.25x5.5". I also die cut one of the "hi" dies from MFT's "Happy Hellos" set from toner cardstock, and foiled that with gold.

I cut a piece of patterned paper from Echo Park's "Jack & Jill" 6x6" pad to 1-7/8" square, and cut that in half diagonally for the piece in the lower left corner. I also cut four 1/8" wide strips: 2 from blue cardstock & 2 from gold foil cardstock. I glued one strip of each color to my card front, butted up against the patterned paper triangle. I cut the second piece of patterned paper to fit in the remaining space, and glued the other 2 strips along that.

After die cutting a circle from light blue cardstock using a Spellbinders "Standard Circles SM" die, I used the same die as a template to trace a circle on a piece of dark blue cardstock. I cut that out with scissors, to create a narrow mat around the smaller circle. Then I glued both circles together, and glued my "hi" letters in place. Finally, I adhered that to my card front, and mounted the panel to a white A2 card base. I will send this card in my next package to Send a Smile 4 Kids.
