Make Crafty Friend Card with Foil

Start by creating a standard card from a panel of white cardstock. Then, cut a long rectangle from an Adhesive Sheet 4×6 inch. Tear off the bottom of the rectangle and rub the adhesive to transfer it onto the card.

This fun technique would be appreciated by your crafty friend – trust me! LOL! First, take a piece of Metallic Transfer Foil (color side UP) and rub it directly onto the adhesive. When burnishing foil, I like to make a fist with my hand and rub the foil over and over again until it completely adheres to the card. Another way to burnish foil? Use bone folder rather than your hand!

Adding the Fun Stuff

Now that you’ve added foil to your card, you’re going to do some stamping! Stamp a couple stamps and hearts onto cardstock. Color them in with markers and then cut the images out with your scissors. Mount the images onto your card with Thin 3D Foam Squares. I love using these squares on cards because they give elements a little pop but not too much.

Take a strip of cardstock and stamp a sentiment onto it. Adhere it to the card as well with the Thin 3D Foam Squares. If the sentiment strip is longer than your card, snip off the ends with your scissors.

Complete the card by adding a few sequins to it. You’ll notice on my card that I tried to place sequins on some spots where I didn’t apply foil to the card. Sequins are a great way to hide any mistakes.

By the way, did you know the Micro Adhesive Dots work well for applying sequins to cards? They are the perfect size for these small embellishments.
