You know how we love our Try Day Friday series! Each Friday afternoon on our Facebook page, our we share a new technique with you LIVE. Isn’t that so fun? This week Training Manager Lynn Leusch is sharing something easy and stunning! If you saw the video tutorial, we think that you’re probably super excited about using our Silver & Gold Leaf Foils. If you’d like to watch on our YouTube channel, you can see the video right here.
Isn’t that just beautiful?! It’s full of stunning gold foil and it’s just, well…incredible! But you know what else it is? It’s EASY. For real! Getting all of that beautiful background shimmery and shine is so easy to do! Let us show you!
We started with Whip Cream Cardstock, White Liner Sheets and our Bloom Tool. That creates the base of the card you’ll place all of the rest of the details on top of. The White Liner is where the Silver & Gold Leaf Foils will adhere to the card.
Once you place the Frame [from the Ornamental Frames Die Set] atop the White Liner [You’ll stick one side of the White Liner to the Whip Cream Cardstock. Then, you’ll peel the back off of the other side of the White Liner and adhere the Candy Apple Frame.]. This is where the fun really begins. You’ll place pieces of the Silver & Gold Leaf Foils [we used the gold!] on the white sections, giving it a rub to have it stick to the White Liner. Some of the pieces will break off – and that’s okay! You can use all of the teeny, tiny pieces – so don’t fret! They are still gorgeous and usable!
We also love the Dauber Dowel for burnishing the foil!
Isn’t that stunning!? I promise, it’s even prettier in person! And it was SO easy to get that beautiful effect — you wouldn’t believe it! Now, you simply add your embellishments and sentiments and you have something really special to give to your recipient.
This is just one card you could make — because of course you can create anything you can dream up! The design of the card [or project] is up to you! Would you like to see Lynn show you just how easy it is to use the Silver & Gold Leaf Foils? Check out her video right here:
We want to see what you are creating this holiday season — we hope it’s full of fun and shiny gold! Even if it’s not [and, of course, if it is!] please share with us on our Facebook page and tag us on Instagram, too!
