I’m super excited to share my card with you today.  I’m bursting out of the seams with excitement.  You want to know why?  Well, check it out:

(Photographing this technique was a bit of a challenge because when I stood the card up the foil looked black so I had to lie it down.)

Yes, Foiling!!!  I did some foiling!!  It was super easy after I got the hang of it!!  I messed up a couple of pieces of cardstock but what is perfection without errors!!!!

My first mistake was putting the foil on my image upside down.  LOL!!!  I ran it throught the laminator a bunch of times and couldn’t figure out what to do.  Then it dawn on me to turn the up face side up!!

Magic!!!  I ran it thought the laminator a couple of times to make sure I was doing it right and BAM!!!  It was!!

Now I need every color they own.  Especially since I bought a laser printer and laminator just for this technique!! Don’t judge me!!!!  I’m addicted to crafts.

So how did I create my card:

1. I printed my Hero Arts Special Birthday Digital image and sentiment from my new Brother Laser Printer. There is a newer model to this printer but I didn’t need up to date since I will just use it to foil.

2. I cut my Deco Foil sheet to fit the size of my sentiment and image.  I place each piece on top of the sentiment and images, gold side up and ran it through my Royal Sovereign 9-inch Laminator. I used regular printer paper to run my cardstock through the laminator.

Note: a2z Scrapbooking will carry the Heidi Swapp Foil which has gold and silver on one sheet!

3.  I attached my foil cardstock to my black card base and that was it!!

Super duper easy.  What do you think?  Will you try foiling now?
