Fab Foil Cards with Jo Herbert

Hi all, Jo Herbert here I am super excited to be showcasing some fabulous foil cards with you today. 

I have played with an array of Fab Foilers and Fab Foils from their collection. If you didn't know WOW has pre-printed toner packs full of beautiful designs and sentiments. These make for ready-to-go panels to be foiled with our Fab Foils range. 

For my first card, I have used the Love & Hugs Fab foilers which also includes sentiments to make for some quick and easy cards to put together.  The foil colour for the background is Teal. 
For the featured floral image I have heat embossed on watercolour cardstock with Opaque Bright white embossing powder. The floral image is from Vintage Garden stampset from Altenew which I have use coloured in with the brush markers.  
Foiling Tips
Ensure that you have brushed off any excess dust before you run the foil and toner panel through a laminator or Minc Machine.

Have your foil ready in card size panel pieces or ready cut pieces to place over the toner reactive Fab Foiler panels.

Place the foil and card panel in between parchment or baking paper or copy paper to protect your pieces while going through the MINC or laminator machine. 

HAVE FUN - it is an addictive process .... so enjoy the process, experiment with different colours and make loads of creations.

For my second card I have used the Sweet Sentiments Fab Foilers which you can either cut up to create many sentiment or do what I did and use the whole panel as a background. This background was a solid panel with the white coming through the foil.
I used Ebony embossing powder on watercolour cardstock for the Altenew Camelia Waterhouse stampset.  The Fab Foil of choice is Blush.

 The Fab foil Glitter Gold worked really well on the Fab foiler background print which is opposite to the above solid blush foil panel.  I quickly coloured in the Catherine Pooler Fresh Picked floral which I added on a solid gold foil cardstock.  The sentiment is from Pinkfresh sentiment foil pack.

Last but not least, I played with the Background Art Fab Foilers set and paired with the Violet Fab Foil.
I added a watercoloured a floral image from Alex Syberia as the centre element to the card front.

  1. Great cards you have made with the background and sentiment Fab Foilers Jo with some wonderful colours and the amazing shine which you get with them, and the added flowers are beautifully coloured, and love the gold foil mat you have placed beneath one of the flowers too. x
