Foiled Christmas Cards

hello everyone!!!

can you believe it is Christmas time already!!

today I just wanted to share with you a  quick and easy card I made using Decofoil Transfer Gel and some Deco Foil transfer sheets

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I know it says to use a laminator but I like to experiment.. you see I don’t own a laminator so I figured there must be a way I can do this because I had a vision.

so here is what I did. I stared out by spreading a thinish layer of gel onto a piece of mixed media paper through my stencil.  I then set it aside to dry..

and because I had so much left on my stencil if thought why not make a couple more!!!

once they were dry I laid on a sheet of transfer sheet and using my heat tool (NOT my embossing tool because, well I did try that but it melted my foil before it would actual adhere to my gel)

as it was heating I took a stick and rubbed onto of my stencil image…checking every so often to be sure all places were covered.

I then repeated it with the centre bow but this time I used some of Rebekah’s foil.. it worked the same way. I then stuck that onto a piece of black cardstock and fuzzy cut and set aside.

to finish my card was so simple.. a bit of stitching and stamping, and adhereing my bow.. all done.. just like that!!!

I hope you enjoyed my quick little tutorial and that you take the time to play and experiment using the supplies you have on hand and some of The Crafter’s Workshop stencils… and if you do, please do share with us.. we love to see what you are up to!
