Gold Foil Father’s Day Card

Father’s Day is rapidly approaching.  Christine here and if you haven’t already made your card, I’ve got some inspiration for you today.  As I considered how I wanted to make mine, I decided to add in the trendy gold foil combined with several other fun elements.  Join me as I share the different ways I incorporated foil throughout this card!

Gold Foil Father's Day Card Tutorial

The combination of stickers, patterned papers, and LOTS of adhesives all made this card come together.  Let’s take a look at the different steps including how you can “Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside” to really up your project!

Gold Foil Father’s Day Card Tutorial

Step One: After cutting down your card base, add Adhesive Dots in multiple sizes to the bottom left and top right corner of the card.

Step Two: Add Embossing Powder to the dots and then heat them up to set the powder.  This is an important step to do before adding other parts to the card.  Otherwise, the heat could mess up your other elements.

Step Three: Add a 3D Foam Frame to the center of the card.  As you can see the frames come in a nested set making a variety of sizes available.  They stretch a long way consequently making them a great choice for diving into multiple card designs.

Step Four: Top the frame with gold foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. Although this looks complicated, it is as simple as laying the foil on the 3D Foam Frame and then simply rubbing over the top with your finger.

Step Five: Add your sentiment atop the frame. As you can see the gold in my sentiment was a huge inspiration for the rest of the card.

Step Six:  Cut out stars from patterned paper and secure those with Adhesive Sheets and 3D Foam Squares.

Step Seven: Add additional Adhesive Dots as you see holes that need to be filled.  Use gold foil atop those to add some additional gold foil throughout.

Thanks for joining me today – have fun getting those cards ready for Dad!
