I recently purchased some Deco Foil by Therm-o-Web with no idea how I was going to use it. I intended to pick up transfer gel but that hasn’t happened yet and I was itching to get some shiny on my cards. So off to the land of Pinterest and YouTube I went. I found an older video by Jennifer McGuire (linked here) that showed how to use foil on heat embossing. So I decided to give it a go and here’s what we came up with! 😀
Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. The general idea I used here is distress ink blend the background, stamp and heat emboss a star background stamp. Then lay foil over my panel and run it through my laminator in a copy paper folder. Then I trimmed it down to 4×5.25 and added it to a card base with foam tape.
For my sentiments I used Honey Bee Stamps layered happy die cut. The top layer, in yellow, is die cut three times and then covered in glossy accents. This idea is another one from Jennifer McGuire in a more recent video. (linked here) Then I added birthday from Lawn Fawn Wild for You set and popped it up with foam tape.
Between the glossy words and that awesome Deco Foil background, this card is so eye catching and fun to move around in the light. I can’t wait to play around with more types of Deco Foil and with more techniques.
Have you used Deco Foil before? What techniques have you tried? Any favorites? Leave a comment below. I’d love to know!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
