Hi Crafty Friends, Meghan Kennihan here and I am so excited to be back for another creation! Today, I am sharing a fun Christmas themed card, Elf Emma with foiled lights featuring an easy foiling technique.

Foiled Lights Step Out

Start with die-cutting the string of lights from white cardstock. Next, apply Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 in on the back of a scrap piece of white cardstock and die-cut the little bulbs from it. This gives me edge-to-edge adhesive coverage on my bulb shapes. It is the perfect set up to foil them!

Foiling the Bulbs

To create the foiled light bulbs, simply peel off the yellow liner and place the desired foil color (color side UP) over the exposed adhesive. I picked red, green, and silver foils from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit with Foil. To transfer the color, gently rub the foil with your finger tips and pull away the foil to reveal the result. Reapply if there are missed areas.

I flipped the foil over so you can see how I placed the bulbs.

Making Layers

To create the layers of the card front, I added holiday patterned paper to fit my red cardstock card base. Using the girl elf die cut as a guide on size, I die-cut red and white cardstock layers to double-frame her.

The words were die-cut and foiled the same as the bulbs to match. Then I adhered all the shapes with the Dual Tip Glue Pen

Adding Elf Emma

After stamping, coloring and die-cutting Elf Emma, I wanted her to stand out by lifting her up with 3D Foam Circles. So I added them to the back and placed her on the card panel so that she pops from the card!
