I love the shiny bright look of Deco Foil! It’s such a beautiful accent for any crafting project, and now with the new Fancy Foils and Foil-Mates product line by Gina K.™ Designs, adding the glamorous touch of foil is easier than ever. Today I have a sweet friendship card to share featuring lots of new goodies from the Therm O Web GinaK Designs line, and the adorable new summer paper collection from Photo Play Paper called Bucket List.

Friends Card Project Instructions:

Before I begin, I always turn on my laminator and let it get good and hot while I’m working on the rest of my supplies.
Create a standard A2 card base from white cardstock, and cover the front of the card with patterned paper.

*Note: For this project, I have edged all the paper pieces and accents with Wild Dandelion ink using an ink blending tool.

Trim a 3.5″ x 4″ piece of dotted Polka Party Foil-Mates sheet, and a piece of Wild Dandelion Fancy Foil that is slightly larger.

For best foiling results, I like to add a bit of scrap cardstock behind my Foil-Mates sheet for extra stability. Place the foil on top of the Foil-Mate, with the colored side up and the silver side down. Sandwich this combo between the sheets of a folder piece of parchment paper.

Place the folded end of the parchment into the laminator first, and run it through the machine. Repeat the process to make sure all the foil has transferred.

Then peel up the foil sheet and check out your amazing foiled pattern!

Trim some additional patterned papers and cardstock to add to your card design. Now we’re ready for the sentiment.

Select a sentiment from the True Friend Foil-Mates, and die cut it into a square shape using a die from the Square Small Set die set.

Nest two of the square shape dies together and secure them on the backside with a bit of washi tape. Die cut a frame to fit the sentiment block from matching patterned paper. Layer the two pieces together and secure them on the back with a bit of cello tape.

Add 3D Adhesive Squares to the back of the sentiment frame, and adhere it to the card base. Die cut three stars from Red Velvet Premium Cardstock using the Rectangles Large Die set, and attach the stars to the card using 3D adhesive and Zots clear adhesive dots.
