Gold Foil card using ClearSnap Designer Foils

Hello!  AJ here with one of my favorite cards to date.  If you haven’t noticed, Gold foil is on everything lately!


I got some of Clearsnaps Designer Foils a long while back and just recently dug them out to join in on the FOIL craze happening everywhere.


I love stripes. Stripes are hands down my favorite- they are timeless and can be used for any theme or style project.  To start with this project. I placed my card stock on to my work space to make sure it was even.  I just laid strips of Crafty Power Tape down, each one butting up to the previous.
AJOtto-Gold-3When your card stock is fully covered, remove the backing of about 4 strips.  Place your foil, (color side up) and press into the tape.  You can carefully burnish it with your finger to make it all adhere.AJOtto-Gold-4Here’s with half done, and the remaining strips left on my foil strip I am using.  AJOtto-Gold-5

Remove the backing from the remaining strips, and repeat.  Gently lift up from your work space, and press the ends into the back.
