Hello! It’s hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is in just one month! There are a whole BUNCH of ThermOWeb products that would make quick and easy school-themed Valentines. Today I decided to use Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets as well as Deco Foil Transfer Sheets!
Quick To Make School Valentines
School Valentines Video Tutorial
My son is four, so when I think of school-themed Valentines I think of bright colors. And that means crayons! And rainbows! Haha! I decided to go back to basics and use the original six colors of Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets for my rainbow of Valentines. When I work with the Flock Transfer Sheets I like to first transfer them onto pieces of cardstock.
I cut down six pieces of cardstock and covered each of them with a piece of an iCraft 6×6 Easy Cut Adhesive Sheet. Then I cut down a piece of each of the six Deco Foil Flock colors – Think Pink, Orange Glow, Sunshine Yellow, Green Envy, Blue Diamond, and Purple Punch – to be a bit larger than the cardstock pieces. To transfer the Flock Transfer Sheets onto the cardstock I peeled back the adhesive and placed the Flock Transfer Sheets face down into the adhesive. Then I ran each of them through my die cutting machine to really press the Flock Transfer Sheets into the adhesive, peeled away the backer sheet, and I have a whole rainbow of Deco Foil Flock covered cardstock pieces!
The Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets have so much texture, but I decided to add a bit more using an embossing folder. You can use the Flock Transfer Sheets with embossing folders just like you would with regular cardstock! I used the Taylored Expressions Cross Stitch Embossing Folder on each of the six backgrounds – but I still needed more! Haha! I used coordinating colors of Distress Inks to lightly add a little ink after I embossed the backgrounds. The raised portions of the Deco Foil Flock backgrounds pick up the ink and the embossing really pops off the page!
I die cut some stitched rectangles from heavyweight cardstock and stamped my sentiment and images from the Lawn Fawn Color My World stamp set. I colored them with alcohol markers to match the Deco Foil Flock backgrounds. I was going to assemble my cards with just the Deco Foil Flock backgrounds and colored panels, but again …. they needed just a little something more. Something shiny, of course!
I added some Deco Foil Transfer Sheets and totally cheated so that I wouldn’t waste a lot of foil. I only wanted a small border around my colored panel, so I outlined the second piece of cardstock with 1/4″ Gina K Designs Terrific Tape and added foil to that. The Deco Foil is only around the edges instead of covering the whole layered cardstock piece. I chose coordinating colors of Deco Foil Transfer Sheets – Purple, Deep Blue, Spring Green, and Gold. I found the closest matches to the pink and orange with Sweet Mango and Passionate Pink Gina K Designs Fancy Foil.
I adhered all of my pieces together with iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive. I know this adhesive will hold strong to the Deco Foil Transfer Sheets as well as the Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets. I hope you love this rainbow of quick school Valentines! See you soon!
