Hello. I hope you are well. It has been a bit chilly here today and I am sad to say goodbye to Summer but love Autumn colours and cosy nights crafting.
Today I am sharing a card as part of the Altenew AECP. The class that inspired my card was all about foiling without a laminater.
There are a couple of ways to add foil to a card. One way is to stamp images on to your card and use a bonding powder or embossing powder and a heat tool, then add the foil burnishing it on with your fingers or a bone folder.
Then there was the way I added foil. To start off I took a piece of white card and some double sided craft tape. I lined up the tape diagonally along the card.
I covered the whole card in even strips the cut off the excess along the edge of the card. I then removed the backing on all the strips. I took a piece of fancy foil from Gina K Designs and placed the card face down on to it. I rubbed all over the back of the card with my fingers then flipped the card over and did the same on the front. Then its time for the reveal. I carefull peeled back the foil to reveal the stripes.
To add some interest to the card I stamped a flower and two leaves from the Altenew Perfectly Perfect stamp set and coloured them with my Copic markers. I then fussy cut the out. I stamped and white heat embossed the ‘just because’ sentiment from the Altenew heartfelt sentiments stamp set on to black card and adhered it to my background usng a tape runner and used foam pads to add dimension and attach the flowers.
To complete the card I adhered the panel to a piece of black cardstock to add a black border then adhered this to a card base.
Thanks for dropping by.
