Autumn is officially one month away and I am so ready for its arrival. Hello, my crafty friends, Terri here, with a Fall leaf CAS card with foil flakes. What are foil flakes? Scroll down to find out!
Stamping and Coloring
First, I need to color and stamp my leaf. I mostly use mixed media paper for stamping and coloring, along with hybrid ink to stamp. It’s the perfect combination to color and not worry about my ink bleeding. I’ve used brush markers for coloring today.
Dual Tip Glue Pen for Foil Flakes
I wanted just a touch of foil on my leaf. To achieve this, I dropped a bit of glue from my Dual Tip Glue Pen onto my craft mat and dabbed the glue with a toothpick. Taking care not to be heavy handed with the glue, I just touched tiny drops to the leaf, waited just a minute, then applied the foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit, shiny side up. I gently rubbed the foil and used my craft heat gun to zap a little heat.
Once I peeled the foil lining, there were scattered tiny flakes of foil. Now, you can “Wear Your Adhesive On The Outside!” You may wish to repeat this technique to get more flakes, as desired. Next, it’s time to fussy cut my leaf and apply it to my card. My E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill cartridge make this possible. I call it, the “Dynamic Duo!”
It is so hard to capture the flakes of foil in a straight shot but you can see the shimmery gold at this angle. Quick and easy detailing that adds that extra wow factor to your projects.
