This month at WOW HQ we have asked to give you ideas on foils.
You need a laminator for this project as it is one of the alternative methods to use with foils instead of the heat gun.
Firstly I washed some watercolour paints onto a piece of cardstock then dried it off with the heat gun.
I then stamped the stars from the new stamp set 'LET IT SNOW' over the paint with Versamark and then sprinkled bonding powder over this. I then heat set the stars. This goes transparent.
Cut a piece of the green foil strip to cover the stars, and place colour upwards over them. I then took a piece of wax paper (the type you use for die cutting) and placed this over the card and foil. I then fed the card through the laminator.
Peel everything off the card and you are left with the foiled stars and the wax from the paper has transfered to the background of the card, giving a rippled effect. I then stamped the 'Merry Christmas' in black archival ink.
I then matted this onto green card, and added a ribbon of string and love heart embelishment.
Have a wonderful month and catch up on all things WOW at
