Sunday Card Share #81 – Gina K Foil Mates
Welcome back, It’s Joy here today for the SN card share.
I love adding foil to my projects and while we were at CHA back in January we were able to see Gina K work with her new products with Deco Foil. Gina’s collection has Fancy foils, foils that match the ink and paper in her collection, cardstock, ink cubes Foil Mates, metal dies, and ribbon. You can see the full collection here.
This card started with a scrap of pattern paper on my desk and that lead me to the colours of distress I used for the watercolour background I created. I believe most people call the technique I used for the background is the packaging technique or the smooshing technique.
You simply use some packaging or small plastic baggie and apply your colour medium to the plastic, add a bit of water then flip it over onto your paper and move the colour around.
I used two different Gina K. Designs die sets to cut the sentiment and the pattern paper. I love that stitching detail, especially the double stitched set.
Next, I used a laminating machine to added some Silver Sequin foil to the Foil Mates Birthday sentiment. I also added foil to some wood veneer stars using the Deco Foil Liquid adhesive.
I used my fingers to apply the glue to the stars, waited for them to dry & become tacky and rubbed the foil on top. Due to the uneven surface of the wood veneers, I did have to reapply the foil in some spots.
All I had to do after that was to glue everything down and my card was finished.
I hope you found some inspiration today and I hope you get out your foils and add some shine to your next project. Happy crafting!
