Happy New Years Everyone, it’s Tina here. I wish you all an awesome year ahead! By now the holidays have passed and life is returning to normal. Today I wanted to share a card with you using your Background Dies to create a foiled background. Below you will find the steps to recreate this fun technique and how I used the Fancy Floral Coverplate Die.
Step 1 – Trim White Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card (A2)
Step 2 – Diecut Fancy Floral Coverplate using White Cardstock. Place the diecut on White Cardstock and secure it with Painter’s Tape. Using Deco Foil Transfer Gel apply with a Palette Knife over the stencil created. Once stencil is thoroughly covered gently remove the stencil. Let the background dry for an hour or until the Transfer Gel has turned clear.
Step 3 – Place Foil Paper over the background and insert it into a folded photocopy paper. Pass it in your laminator. I passed it twice. Remove the Foil Paper and what you have is a beautiful foiled background. See photos below.
Step 4 – Diecut Double Stitched Rectangles to the background created from Step 3 – Adhere to card using Foam Tape.
Step 5 – Diecut sentiment 3 times and adhere all layers using Collage Medium and adhere to card.
Step 6 – Stamp sentiment using Versamark on Black Cardstock. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a heat tool. Trim and adhere to card using foam tape.
Step 7 – Optional – For added interest Diecut Stitched & Layered Christmas Tree (the star) 3 times and adhere to card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed another way to use your background dies. This card can be used for any occasion by changing the background, color and sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
