Deco Foil Flock Cards for Father’s Day
For these cards, the first thing I do is use the Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO and stencils. Using some Pixie spray on the stencil I place it over the cardstock. I like to work with 110lb cardstock when I am using the gel. I added some purple tape just to mark the section I wanted to apply the transfer gel.
Next, I let the transfer gel dry for a few hours. Once it’s dried, we’re ready to run it through the laminator.
I place the cardstock face down on the Deco Flock. I am using Tuscan Gold because it’s a great masculine color.
I like to run it through the laminator twice. It’s just my preference personally. It does adhere with one pass but I do two. Then I peel back the flock to reveal the design. Looks pretty good right? If you haven’t tried the new Transfer Gel DUO I highly suggest you do. The results really are amazing. And you do not need heat to transfer flock or foils!
I’m going to make an A2 size card so I cut the flocked design down and also adhere some patterned cardstock to my card base. I adhere it with one of our mini tape runners.
Next, using our foam squares I adhered to the ephemera and then layer the Dad die-cut letters with the smaller foam squares and finish with the top hat die cut. Such a fun, cool card right? And VERY masculine.
I repeat the same process for card number two but I want to mention that I use this tray filled with soapy water to place my stencils in right after I am done with them so that the Transfer Gel comes off easier and they clean up well. (Yes that’s an In & Out tray I bought off their website) We So Cal peeps love our In & Out and it’s perfect for the stencils!
Now that this one is dry I repeat the same process of running it through the laminator.
Now that the card base is flocked, I assemble the card starting with adhering the flocked piece over the patterned paper. Next, I add the emphemera and use the foam squares to layer everything over the flocked piece.
Here’s the finished result. I hope you enjoy these cards and will get our your favorite stencils and Transfer gel and give this technique a try. I typically create multiple backgrounds since I have all the products out already and cut them down to A2 size for later use. I layer them in between sheets of parchment paper so they don’t stick together.
