Let’s have some fun with foil! Hi, Jamie here with you today sharing a heart slimline card that uses foil, glitter, and embossing powder. Are you ready to try a unique technique?
Having Fun with Foil
Apply a sheet of Adhesive Sheets 4×6″ on top of a piece of white cardstock, keeping the top liner on, die-cut with the heart dies.
Next, cut a piece of foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Pastel Colors, a little larger than the heart that you are going to cover, then wad up the foil and roll it in your hands before opening it, this is what you’ll get.
Remove the liner from the heart and place the foil on top, color side UP, and gently rub the foil with your fingertips to transfer the color. Peel off to reveal a marbled look. The exposed adhesive (the white wrinkles) will be sticky so either a different color foil or use glitter, fun flock or even embossing powder to fill those areas.
Foil the three other hearts with a solid color. Aren’t they beautiful?!
Assembling the Card
Die-cut a piece of white cardstock using a slimline die as the card panel. Then place the four hearts on top and secure them with E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser. The first heart uses solid pink foil, the blue and pink hearts are embossed with embossing powder and the last heart uses pink foil and the marbling technique with Ultra Fine Crystal Glitter to fill in the cracks.
Three hearts will be popped up using 3D Foam Circles White Mix and placed in between the hearts on the panel.
An additional blue heart was attached flat below the little green popped-up heart. Die-cut a second larger panel from the same slimline die set and pop up the heart panel using 3D Foam Circles White Mix.
The Final Touches
Stamp the words on white cardstock with black ink cut them into strips and adhere to the card front with the E-Z Squares® to attach them flat to the bottom panel.
Lift the layered card panel using 3D Foam Circles White Mix onto a slightly larger pink panel. I stamped it with pink splatter spots. Next, attach the panel to a white slimline card.
Lastly, place a few pink enamel dots around the hearts and on the larger white panel.
