If you’re like many of us you like to frequent stores that have all those fun dollar bins. (or not so dollar bins!) Hours can be spent going through the bins to find all sorts of wonderful goodies. Cards, gifts, decor, treats, stickers…you name it! Today I will show you how in just minutes you can add some Deco Foil™ shine to those pre-made cards to give it a bit of umph!

Jazz Up Pre-made Cards with Deco FoilLast Minute Deco Foil Valentine Cards

This year for Valentine’s Day I picked up some fun cards and embellishments. When I opened them up I realized they could use a bit of shine from our Deco Foil Adhesive Pen! So I gathered up those cards along with some fun hearts to add some dimension.

Valentine Card supplies:

iCraft® Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets – Champagne
iCraft® Deco Foil™ Adhesive Pen
Zots™ Adhesive Dots – Small
Pre-made Cards and embellishments

Let’s get started….

Grab your Deco Foil Adhesive Pen and write over the letters that you want to add some shine to. I chose the words My and Fav. Valentine 7

Then take your sheet of Deco Foil in Champagne and rub over the letters. You can also run this through a manual die machine such as a Sizzix, Cuttlebug etc and the pressure will bond the foil to the adhesive.Valentine 14

Grab a Zot™ Adhesive Dot and add the fun gold heart to the card for some added dimension. Easy peasy!

Next…for this fun HEY Card I thought it need some shine as the print was a dull beige brown which didn’t scream fun to me!

So I grabbed the Deco Foil Adhesive Pen…traced out the letters…and than added the Champagne Deco Foil to the card!

Last I saw these fun Thank You cards but thought it would look great to add some shine to some of the circles.

Simply take the pen…color in the circles…I just selected random ones. Then use the Champange Deco Foil Transfer Sheet and rub the foil onto the adhesive. Peel off the transfer sheet to reveal a cute way to jazz up a pre-made card.
