Uplifting Foiled Greeting Cards
Hey friends, how are you this Tuesday? On today’s blog I’d like to share with you these foiled encouragement/girly cards that I made for my regular social Tuesday post for the WOW! Embossing Powder Team on Instagram, I decided not just to share them on Instagram, but to share them with you in a blog post as I wanted to share another way to foil with the beautiful WOW! Fab Foil Gold by using pieces of toner sheets. There’s a previous blog post where I shared with you how to foil using Bond Embossing Powder, but I know it can be tricky sometimes. (You can ➝Click Here if you missed that blog post from last week.) Also, I’d like to invite you to share your projects with us on the WOW! Facebook Page as these cards are part of our March monthly challenge which is “Foils” so without further ado let’s jump into the blog!
To begin with I started by setting the foil machine while I was die cutting all of the pieces that I was going to use for both of the cards, then I ran through the die cutting machine the Circle Frame metal die to cut out of white card stock 2X the frames for the card panels, once I was done die cutting them I also ran through the die cutting machine the Hey die to die cut 2X out of the toner sheet. As this die comes with a shadow/outline layer, I also ran through the die cutting machine the shadow layer 2X to die cut out of white card stock. In the meanwhile I trimmed down 2 of the new Color Crush Patterns Paper by The Stamp Market for the card panels, as I wanted to created a very simple, yet girly cards. So for the first card I adhered a pink watercolor style pattern to an A2 standard size side folding white card base, next I adhered the circle frame to it.
For the second card I repeated the same steps however, as you can see in the picture above for this card I use a white with black polka dots pattern for the card panel background.
By the time that I was done adhering the card panels to the card bases the foil machine was already preheated, and ready to foil. So I ran through the foil machine the 2 Hey die cuttings and the pieces of foil that I cut out the Fab Foil Sheet. Once the Hey die cutting pieces were foiled I adhered them to their white shadow layers, and I adhered them both to each of the cards. Shortly after, I gold heat embossed 2 sentiments from the Circle & Sentiments stamp set, as you can see for the pink card I used a strip of white card stock to heat emboss the sentiment and for the white & black I used a leftover strip from the pink pattern to emboss its sentiment just to give it a pop of color. Right after I was done with the heat embossing I adhered the sentiments with foam mounting tape to the cards, and to finish them off I adhered complimentary colors of sequins here, and there for a touch of shine to compliment the shine of the foiled Hey.
