Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a colorful and foiled accent card that will make anyone feeling fabulous! I was inspired by the shapes of the E-Z Squares® and the fun tones of the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Holographic Colors against the rhinestones! Let me show you how I created all these wonderful embellishments.
Feeling Fabulous Background
Start by making the colored background. Trim a piece of white cardstock to a rectangular shape for a card panel. Choose four bright color inks for a fabulous look! Using the ink blending tool, color until you are satisfied with the design. Let dry.
DIY Foil Embellishments
On the panel, we’ll make several borders with the E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser. Randomly roll the adhesive vertically over the colored panel. Trim any excess adhesives off the edges.
Next, cut a strip of Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Holographic Colors. Place the foil over the adhesive (color side UP) and rub the foil with your fingertips to transfer the color. Peel away to see the sparkly results! If you missed a spot, not to worry – just reapply the foil.
We like to call this technique Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside. It’s so easy and fun to do! No tools needed.
Extra Fabulous with Rhinestones
To make an extra fabulous effect adhere some rhinestones onto the holographic tiles. By using Adhesive Dots Micro it’s simple to adhere the rhinestones onto the card.
Tip: If you have difficulty picking up and placing the rhinestones with your fingers, simply use tweezers.
The Card Base
Adhere the colored the foiled card panel onto an orange piece of cardstock using Crafty Foam Tape White. Cut a piece of pink ribbon and fold it horizontally around the card panel. Use Crafty Power Tape Dispenser 81ft to adhere the ribbon ends to the back of the card.
Lastly, adhere the sentiment using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Now your card is ready to make someone feel very special….and of course, feeling fabulous!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and wish you all happy crafting!
