Hello friends and welcome! It’s Juliana Michaels with you today. I’m excited to share how to create foiled die cuts to use on your Christmas card making and craft projects. This card features some fun dies from Newton’s Nook Designs and I’ve combined them with some of my favorite Therm O Web foiling products. You are going to love all the shimmer and shine on this card and how easy it is to create!
Foiled Die Cuts
For this card, we’ll be using the Ornament Shaker Die Set and the Pines and Holly Die Set from Newton’s Nook Designs. Take a sheet of iCraft White Foam Adhesive, peel off the liner and adhere it to a piece of white cardstock. This will give the Foam added stability and make it easier to work with for this technique. Next, place the dies you will be using onto this and run them through your manual die cutting machine.
Peel off the top liner and place a piece of Deco Foil onto the foam. Gently rub the foil to adhere it to the foam. Repeat the foiling process with the remaining die cuts.
Embossing Foiled Die Cuts
The foiled die cut has loads of shimmer and shine. To give it some texture emboss it with an embossing folder. Simply place it into an embossing folder and run it through your manual die cutting machine.
Once all of the foiling and embossing is complete, adhere the pieces together to decorate the ornament. Add a bit of ribbon using a Zot Adhesive Dot for even more interest.
To create the background for the card, die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Newton’s Nook Designs scalloped die from the Frames and Flags Die Set. Emboss it using the same embossing folder used on the ornament. To help the texture stand out, apply ink using Distress Oxide Ink and a foam blending tool.
Next, trim a piece of the Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheets O’ Christmas Tree to the size of the inside of the scalloped die cut. Cover it with a piece of Deco Foil in green and run it through a preheated laminator. Use a Memory Tape Runner XL to adhere the scallop die cut piece to a card base and then adhere the foiled Clear Toner Sheet on top of that. Finally, adhere the foiled die cut ornament.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to create foiled die cuts. They really are perfect for adding beautiful shimmer and shine to your holiday card making and crafting projects!
