This week, we are excited to be partnering with our friends at Carta Bella, sharing projects featuring their beautiful Rustic Elegance collection along with Therm O Web’s amazing line-up of adhesives and foils. Today I have two cards to share with you, and two quick gift tags, too. And I’ve got a quick tip for adding a bit of extra detail to your projects using Therm O Web’s iCraft® Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets.

This first card features a beautiful large flower that was fussy cut from one of the 12×12 patterned papers as the focal feature for the design. Love the watercolored look, which already adds a lot of depth and interest to the image. But by adding a little extra texture to the center with our brand new black Deco Foil™ (coming soon!) this flower truly shines.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb CartaBella RusticEleganceBestDayCard2Love how the Deco Foil™ looks like it’s embossed. It’s really easy to get that great texture when you use the foils with our liquid Deco Foil Adhesive. Here’s all you need to do.

Begin by creating your card base and fussy cutting one of the flower images from the sheet of patterned paper.

Squirt a bit of liquid Deco Foil™ Adhesive onto a piece of scrap paper. And using the end of a pencil eraser, dab the liquid adhesive onto the center of the flower.

Allow the liquid adhesive to dry completely. The adhesive will be tacky once dry, but the key is to make sure it is not wet. You want the adhesive to be sticky, but not to come away on your finger when you touch it. Cut a small piece of Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheet just large enough to cover the adhesive area.

And lastly, I have a pair of quick mason jar gift tags, both of which were fussy cut from the journaling card sheets.
