Two Ways to Use Fab Foils

 Happy December! Ericka here with a cute gnome Christmas card using Fab Foils two different ways. 


I love the shiny look Fab Foils add to any projects. I started out making the gnome die cut from Simon Says Stamp. Since it was a die cut, I used a wide double sided tape on white cardstock and added my Fab Foil in Dark Blue and Pink on top.

I ran the die cut through my machine and it cut perfectly.


I then added the white pieces of cardstock to my gnome and added a little pencil work on the gnome for fun details.



For my background, I blended Distress Oxides in several greens onto white cardstock.


I then stamped my Hero Art Tree background with WOW! Embossing ink and heat embossed it with Bonding Powder. I ran it through my Minc machine, or you can use a laminator, with Copper Fab Foil to bond it to the foil.

 

A lesson learned - make sure your laminator or Minc isn't too hot because it will smoosh the detail of your embossing too much. I still love the look and kept it for my fun shiny background. It really is hard to photograph the magnificent shine of these foils.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week and a very happy holidays!


 Cheers, Ericka
