Fall Cards with Amber Watercolor Deco Foil Instructions:
My inspiration came when I started pulling products to use for my cards. I pulled these out and they just wanted me to use them! I go different ways in how projects come together, this was from the supplies!
Cut a card base of 4.25 x 5.50, which is a letter size sheet cut in half. Or (confession) I cut down a 12×12 piece of cardstock into an 8.5 x 11 piece and then cut that in half. FYI I am horrible at math!
Set card bases to the side and work on card fronts using the DecoFoil Peel and Stick toner sheets along with the Gina K Foil-Mates.
First, foil your background on the Foil-Mates. Trim your background down to 4.00 x 5.25 to fit card base. This will leave a bit of a border around the Foil-Mates, showing the card base. Cut piece of Amber Deco-Foil slightly larger than your background and run thru laminator. Let cool slightly then peel off foil. Adhere Foil-Mates to your card front. Set this to the side, we are going to work on the other card now.
Using the negative foil piece create the background for the next card by using this on top of a Deco Foil Peel and Stick toner sheet cut to 4.00 x 5.25.
After running this thru the laminator then cut a piece of Pumpkin DecoFoil and run this same piece back thru the laminator. This will “fill in” the empty spots left by the Amber foil.
Cut a piece of pattern paper and then cut a piece of the Gold/White sheer ribbon to fit around your pattern paper piece. Adhere these to card front using foam squares. Add some die cuts adhering with Zots and a Mini Tape runner.
Using the Pumpkin foil negative from the card above, use the exact same technique except you will fill in the Pumpkin foil negative spaces with the Amber DecoFoil. After the Peel and Stick toner sheet is foiled, then cut it down to 3×4. Wrap and tie a bow with the gold/white sheer ribbon around the 3×4 piece. Center and adhere on top of Swirl Foil Mate on the front of card base.
Use Silhouette Cameo to create the Hello Fall sentiment and cut out of the Rebekah Meier Adhesive Sheets. I used the normal cardstock setting for cutting and it worked perfectly. I also created an offset of my sentiment for it to have a background the same shape. You could also just cut a tag or whatever you like.
To the backing off of die cut, I used a piercing tool to get the backing started and then just peeled it off. Adhere to your sentiment background.
NOTE: the openings in the “l’s” were pretty small and the adhesive sheets cut like butter. You can see the “Hello” die cut in the corner before I peeled the backing off.
Once the sentiment has adhered, then peel off the top protective layer and then lay your die cut on the back of the Amber foil transfer sheet. Rub with your fingers to transfer the foil to the adhesive. Then just carefully peel up. And look at your shiny beautiful card!
I cannot wait to hand these cards out! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
