Easy Foiled Cards (without Laminator) | Photo Tutorial

Hello there,

This is Ujjwal and today I have a couple of foiled cards to share with you. Foiling is a trending technique these days and adds a lot to simple cards. I used the TCW9048 Hot Foil Gel and a couple of TCW stencils to do foiling but instead of using a laminator, I used a clothes iron. I also documented the entire process and if you scroll down, you can see the photo tutorial to understand how the cards developed from the beginning. The supplies used are also listed at the end of this post in case you want to check them out.

DISCLAIMER: THE CRAFTER’S WORKSHOP PROVIDED ME WITH SOME PRODUCT TO CREATE THIS PROJECT. THE OPINIONS I SHARE ARE SOLELY MY OWN.

I started by applying the TCW9048 Hot Foil Gel through the stencils TCW822 Jasmine Spray and TCW823 Rose Bouquet on cardstock with a palette knife. Remove the stencil carefully and let dry for a couple of hours till the paste becomes transparent.                  

Next, I laid down the foil (pretty side up) on the cardstock and sandwiched it between a sheet of parchment paper and ironed over it gently with a hot iron.

Then I let the papers cool down a little bit and gently peeled the foil to reveal the stenciled foiled background.

And that’s it! I just embellished the cards a little bit and decided to let the beautiful backgrounds take the focus. Even the negative on the foil is so pretty and can be used in another project.

I hope you found this tutorial useful and enjoyed looking at the project today. I will see you again next time.
