HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!!

Larissa here today to share 2 Cards that’ll get you ready to Celebrate and Thank those that Serve and Protect this great Nation!! I’ve used some Gina K Designs Glitter Glitz Gel and Glittering Fancy Foils to add some Sparkle and Shine!!

Red White and Blue Patriotic Cards

Gatefold Star Card

For my first card, I wanted to create a FUN and Different Gatefold Design using a TE Gatefold Reveal 2 Die and I LOVE the results!!

I started by Spraying the back of the TE Wavy Stripe Stencil with Pixie Spray!! Then I placed it over my Card Panel and applied some Deco Foil Transfer Gel using the Stencil Pal!! I removed the Stencil and set it aside to dry completely!! The gel will turn Clear when Dry and it’ll be Tacky to the touch!!

Once the Gel was completely Dry I Cut a piece of Gina K Designs Radiant Red Fancy Foil and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! SWOON!! I just LOVE the Glittering appearance of this Foil!! I also LOVE that you can use the Negative Foil to use in order to get a Double Colored Design by using it with the Deco Foil Toner Sheets!!

I cut a piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets larger than the negative Foil Piece and placed it over the Toner Sheet and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! Then I removed the Foil Film and added the next Color!!

I cut a piece of Gina K Designs Brilliant Blue Fancy Foil and applied it over the Radiant Red and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! Then I ended up with this AMAZING 2 Toned Stripe Design!! I really LOVE the way it looks!! Plus, you can continue this process and make as many cards as you’d like just repeating the process!! NO WASTE EVER and you only had to Stencil the Design 1 time!! Techniques like this just make me HAPPY!! HUGE results for little effort!!

So here’s the Brilliant Blue Negative and I simply added it to the Deco Foil Toner Sheet and ran it through my Laminating Machine!!

Then I removed the Film and cut a piece of the Radiant Red Fancy Foil and added that over the Brilliant Blue Fancy Foiled Toner Sheet and Ran it through my Laminating Machine!! SWOON!! The same color combo just swapping the order and again if you want to repeat the entire process, you can keep going!!

I adhered some Easy-Cut Adhesive Sheets to some White Cardstock and then adhered to the White Latte Deco Foil Flock Sheets and ran it through my Die Cutting Machine to burnish the Flock into the adhesive!! Then I Die Cut an MFT Pierced Star for the Flocked Cardstock and applied some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink using an Ink Dauber!! I really think this step adds TONS of dimension and makes it POP off the Card!!

I Die Cut the Fancy Foiled Toner Sheet using the TE Gatefold Reveal 2 Die and then adhered it to the center of my Gatefold Card leaving the right half of the Panel free from adhesive!! I LOVE finding NEW ways to use my Dies and I LOVE the Design of this Gatefold Card!! Then I Inked the Circle Cut Out with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and adhered the White Latte Star to the Center of the Circle using some Ultra Bond Adhesive!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto the Right Side of the Gatefold Flap and added some Sparkling Clear Sequins, some Star Confetti and some TE Drip Drops to finish off the front of the Card!!

I Die Cut the other Foiled Toner Sheet using the same TE Gatefold Reveal 2 Die and then adhered it to the backside of the Front Panel!! Then again I inked the Circle Die Cut with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and Stamped and Embossed the God Bless the USA Sentiment!! Now you have a place you can Write a message and I LOVE the Design of this Gatefold Card!! It’s not the intended way to use this Die, but I LOVE being able to STRETCH my supplies!!

Fancy Foil Star Card

For my Second Card, I wanted to use the TE Gatefold Reveal 2 Die again, using it as it was intended to show you a couple of different ways to use it along with the AMAZING Therm O Web Products!!

I Started by Spraying the backside of the TE Wavy Stripe Stencil and adhered it over the Card Panel!! Then I applied some of the Gina K Designs White Glitz Glitter Gel with a Stencil Pal!! I removed the stencil and set it aside to Dry!!

SWOON!! Just look at that BEAUTIFUL Design!! If you LOVE Glitter but hate the mess you have to try the Glitz Glitter Gels!! I LOVE them and all of the different ways you can use them!!

I used some Deco Foil Toner Sheets and cut some Brilliant Blue Fancy Foils and ran it through my Laminating Machine in order to Die Cut a Star!! I used some Staz On White Ink to Stamp my Sentiment in the center of the Star!!

I Cut a TE Cherry Pop Cardstock Frame and adhered the Glitz Glittered Panel to the Frame using some Ultra Bond Adhesive then Cut it in half to add to the front of my Gatefold Cardbase!! I adhered the Star to a Vellum Belly Band cut from the TE Noteworthy Belly Band Die Set using some Gina K Designs Terrific Tape!!

Then I Die Cut the TE Gatefold Reveal 2 Die from some White Cardstock and Die Cut the Flag Reveal Pieces from the TE Cherry Pop Cardstock to coordinate with the front of the Card!! I inked the inside of the Circle with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and then Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment!! I LOVE the FUN Gatefold Reveal Design and there are so MANY FUN ways to use these products together to create some pretty AMAZING Cards!!
