Reverse Foiled Mandala Graduation Card


This foiled mandala graduation card was made with the leftover foil from my last card.

It would have been a waste not to use the beautiful piece leftover from the last card I made! This card was much less elaborate than the first one because I didn't need to do any coloring and I didn't use any die cuts. I simply printed the reverse image of the mandala from my previous post on a black piece of cardstock and was careful to line up the foil with the printed design. I also printed the sentiment on black cardstock and foiled that to match. I used a pearl pen to add pearls to the dots on the mandala design for a little bit of dimension and contrast.

If you use Cricut, the file can be found here:


This cards cut lines were intentionally left as cut lines so that the black cardstock could be hand trimmed if desired. Cricut machines can't detect registration marks on black cardstock so the easiest method to cut this card would be to use a trimmer.

It is possible to have your machine cut the file with the following method

Print each print-then-cut page twice - once on black cardstock and once on white cardstock. Have your machine to cut the white paper print first, then tape the piece with registration marks to the top of the black printed page with registration marks showing and lined up with the registration marks on the black sheet. Have your machine cut the combined piece.
