Year of Cheer Snowflake Flowers & Stampin Blends Part 2

Following on from yesterday's post with the details... another quick tip for the Stampin Blends (coming soon!) for you...

Want a coloured Foil mat in a colour of your choice? Well now you can... just colour the edge of your Silver Foil mat using your Stampin Blend marker... in my case, dark Bermuda Bay to co-ordinate with my flowers (on yesterday's card!)
Though I will be honest and say that it works well for a thin mat such as used here... but I wouldn't use this technique for a larger area and it goes quite streaky when you have to go over the same area multiple times...

You will also notice that I have a few mats from my one Silver Foil mat. This is one thing I am always frugal with... just line up at 1 cm (or 3/8") on your Stampin Trimmer and cut from 1 cm at the top to 1cm from the bottom, Turn 90 degrees and repeat... and so on until you have cut out a rectangle from the centre. The larger is on today's card whereas the middle one was used on yesterdays...
And another silver embossed Big on Birthdays greeting to set everything off...
