Hi, there! It’s Lynnea! I’m SO excited to bring you my creations celebration the ThermOWeb and Waffle Flower collaboration week! I paired some white florals with a bright and shiny Deco Foil background! These cards are so gorgeous in real life! I hope you’ll watch my video at the end of this post to get the full sparkly effect!
Deco Foil Transfer Gel Birthday Card with Waffle Flower Stamps
Deco Foil Birthday Card
I used one of my favorite tricks to get two cards from one piece of Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil! This stuff is like precious candy! I use every single bit of it!
To start I used a chevron stencil and adhered it to some heavyweight cardstock with a light layer of Pixie Spray. I’m so obsessed with Pixie Spray because you really don’t need a lot of it! And I can reuse the stencil multiple times! I used my Stencil Pal and added a layer of Deco Foil Transfer Gel over the top of the stencil. I peeled away the stencil and set the piece aside to dry. You’ll know when the Transfer Gel is dry because it will be completely clear.
Once the Transfer Gel was dry I cut a piece of Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil slightly larger than my card front and ran it through my laminator. I found that I get the best results when I use a piece of the parchment paper folded in half as my carrier sheet and run it through my laminator twice. After the Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil was transferred onto my card front I had the negative piece leftover. It was the same chevron pattern – just a bit different! And guess what?! This piece is TOTALLY usable!
I grabbed the second sheet of cardstock and covered it with a piece an of iCraft Double Sided Adhesive Sheet. Then I just pressed the negative piece of foil on top! You can’t even tell which is which by looking at them! The only real difference is that the original stenciled piece has some dimension because of the Transfer Gel – but I’ll tell you a secret! The original piece has the flowers coming down from the top and the negative is the one with the flowers at the bottom!
Now that the backgrounds are done I needed something gorgeous to go on top! I grabbed the Bouquet Builder 3 stamp set from Waffle Flower and stamped the large image onto Copic friendly cardstock. I LOVE the look of white against a bright background – so I decided to color the whole floral arrangement white. I used N0 and N2 Copic markers and gave each flower and leaf a bit of shading. I trimmed them out and added them to my card fronts with iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive. I stamped out sentiments from the Label Greetings stamp set onto black cardstock and white heat embossed them and added them to my cards with Gina K Designs Black Foam Squares.
What’s a black sentiment strip without some sparkle?! I added some liquid glitter to finish off my cards! Here’s my video! Enjoy!
