I am super curious about these cards! May I ask how you acquired them? Someone must have hand made them. I would love to try this someday and am thinking that they were made by applying silver leaf to sections of the actual cards and then tinting it with transparent paint, then laminating them? Actual "tin foil" is too thick, though I have used it in artworks by embedding it in paint, I don't think it would work on cards. Anyway, a fascinating technique that I hope to try someday if I ever have too much time on my hands! (That and my illuminated manuscript, another thing that I need to make time for, someday!) It seems like it would take a lot of time but would be quite meditative. Like coloring your own cards but kicked up a notch!
