Anniversary Card

Hello to all you lovely blog readers, it's Sarah here and I have a foil inspired card to share with you today.

I have been playing with the fabulous range of foils from Wow and have created a card to send to my boyfriend for our anniversary (I hope he doesn't read this post before I send it!) :O



I used a laser printer to print out a damask pattern onto a copper coloured card and then cut a piece of Gold Foil to cover the printed area. I then sandwiched this between two sheets of standard white copier paper and put this through my laminator. The foil adheres to the toner ink and this created a perfect gold damask pattern. Also, the great thing about a damask background pattern is that the left over foil can be used with a full printed toner sheet (I used a scrap piece I had lying around) and this creates a second background pattern design to use on a different project.



To create the embellishments on the card, I added some ribbon, printed out a heart onto white shimmery card and foiled this using the Red foil and then to finish added a tag with sentiment that was heat embossed in apple red.

  1. What a great demonstration of the foils on laser print - just shows it gives a much sharper finish than on the bonding powder. Great tip for using up the left overs too :)
