Foiled Again!

I am so excited as I found a way I can foil without going out and buying a new printer and laminating machine. I used double sided sticky paper, dies and Scor Tape to have the foil work it's magic. And, from trial and error I finally figured out which side to add to the sticky surface. It is the non colored side that worked for me but then my foiling papers are very old. They originally were meant to use with a hot pen which I don't have. They were in a bargain bin years ago and I thought they looked cool and purchased them not realizing I needed certain tools for them to work. But with this method I can use them.

The dies I used are from Cheery Lynn Designs. I cut them out of the double sided sticky paper which I got from Sparkle N Sprinkle and peeled off one of the layers and then added it to the card base of Gina K. Designs Cranberry Tart card stock. I had thought I had gold foiling paper in that packet but alas there was none so I went with the multicolored one that had some gold incorporated in it. After I had peeled off the top layer of the dies I then added the foil to it using the dull or non shiny side. You have to burnish it quite a bit and when you feel it is all adhered then peel the foil away. If it does not quite all take, you can add some foil again in that area to finish it off. For this card I used a sentiment from Gina K. Designs Scripty Sayings set and embossed it with gold fine detail embossing powder from Gina K. Designs. The card was finished with adding some yellow rhinestone gems.

Cheery Lynn Designs Die used:
Small Leaves #1 D133

I am entering the first card in the  Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Challenge.The challenge calls for Thanks You cards. And this card will be entered into the Dies R Us Challenge-Thankful for Nature (Thank You or Nature Based).

Well, one more post for today and then the rest of the day will involve more baking for an upcoming bake sale. If I do a little at a time I will have a great array of goodies to sell for the Fall church fund raiser. I hope you have a wonderful day as well.

God bless,

How great you found a way to use your foil. Great design in foil and with glitter.I had to smile when you told how your glitter leaves came about. The same thing happened to me the other day with the same leaf dies. I know about using the negatives but sometimes I forget to use them. Thanks for sharing with us at Dies R Us Challenge Blog.

Love it when a mistake happens, or you toss something on your desk and then it inspires you to make another fab design.
