Hi, everyone! Like the look of stripes? Teri here to show you how to create a couple of cards that feature your own foiled striped background paper! Let me show you how I created these Thinking of You Foiled Stripes Cards.
It’s so very easy to create striped paper with Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets! I think you are going to love trying this fun technique!
Create Foiled Stripes with Adhesive Dispenser and Foil
Start by setting a piece of cardstock on scratch paper. Randomly add strips of adhesive to the panel. You can wing it and do it by sight. Want to ensure your lines are super straight? Use a pencil to draw lines onto your paper panel and run your adhesive dispenser over them.
Burnish foil onto the strips of adhesive. I recommend starting at one side of the panel and applying a little bit of foil at a time. Then work your way across the entire panel, adding more foil as you go.
Once you’ve added foil to your panel, come in with a wider adhesive dispenser and add more adhesive lines. Use a second color of transfer foil to cover the wider lines of adhesive.
Decorate Your Card with Your Paper, a Sentiment and More
Once you’ve completed your panel, trim it to fit onto a card. Stamp a sentiment on a strip of cardstock and adhere it across your panel. (Creative tip! Save any leftover striped pieces to use on future cards and tags!)
Add some 3D Foam Circles to your panel. Apply foil to them.
Mount your panel on a piece of patterned paper. Add Creative Photo Corners to the edges of the panel. Place the panel onto your card.
A Variation on Creating Foil Stripes
It’s easy to change up your foiled striped backgrounds. Try using just one adhesive dispenser to make lines to add foil to.
Also, embellish the panel with 3D Foam Squares in addition to circles.
