What a fun Mother's Day I have had. My oldest daughter and I played with the foils and we had so much fun. I am going to show you a couple that I did with a stencil, Deco Transfer Gel and some Deco Foil in a rainbow array of colors. The sentiments I added to these cards are from Gina K. Designs.
I made this one using the positive side. The transfer gel was applied with a plastic card similar to a credit card that I had saved and used that to spread it onto the taped down stencil over the black card stock. I had to wait over an hour for this to dry but you can tell when it is dry as it will no longer be white but will turn clear.
Then I took the rainbow foil, placed it on the card stock, put it in a parchment paper sleeve and ran it through my laminator. I forgot to add the extra shim of card stock like Gina K. suggested in a video but luckily it still came out quite well. I die cut the design and added it to a base card of turquoise and then finished it by adding a stamped sentiment from Gina K. Designs which was also die cut.
And here is the negative side of things. I love how this looks as well and will be definitely using stencils for more fun card making.
The negative was applied to a black foiling sheet by putting it in a parchment sleeve and then through the laminator. I simply die cut it out and added to my yellow card base. The nice long sentiment was perfect I thought so I stamped that in black below. I felt with the foil there is no need for further embellishing as this is a fun and festive look for birthdays.
The dies used on these cards are some from a Die-Namics Die set from My Favorite Things called Stitched Rounded Rectangle Stackers.
So I enjoyed my time with my daughter making cards. I hope all of you Moms out there had a wonderful day as well. Thanks for stopping in and for all your kinds comments.
