Customize Your Cards with Deco Foil and Heffy Doodle

There are SO MANY ways you can use them, including using the Negatives to create customized Deco Foiled colored backgrounds!! SQUEAL!! It’s probably one of my FAVORITE techniques and it’s SO EASY!! So today I’m going to share Step by Step different ways you can Customize them!! Let’s get started!!

For this first card we’re going to use the Deco Foil Toner Card Front how it was originally intended, to Foil with your FAVORITE Deco Foil or Fancy Foils!! I’ve chosen to use the Radiant Red Fancy Foil!!

I Cut a Large enough piece of the Gina K Designs Radiant Red Fancy Foil in order to cover the entire A2 Deco Foil Toner Card Front in Chic Chevron!! Then I placed the Foil Color Side up over the Toner Card Front and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! SWOON!! So BEAUTIFUL right!!

Next, I Die Cut the Panel using the Heffy Doodle Stitched Heart Background Die!! I LOVE the Stitched Heart Detail!! Then I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters to add some Texture!!

I Stamped and Embossed the Heffy Doodle Lil’ Lighthouse Image and Colored it with Copic Markers!!
Red: R14, R37 & R39    White: N0, N3 & 0    Yellow: Y11, Y15 & YR23
Then I created the Background Panel using Distress Oxide Inks in Hickory Smoke for the Ground, Tumbled Glass for the Sky and Fossilized Amber for the Light, using Purple Tape to Mask and Blender Brushes!!

Next, I added some of the iCraft Foam Squares onto the Backside of the Rectangle Panel, the Lil Lighthouse!! Then I added them to the Deco Foiled Toner Card Front!! I LOVE the Dimension it adds!!

So here’s another look at the Finished Card, using the Deco Foil Toner Card Front!!

Now let’s STEP it up for the 2nd Card by using the Negative Foil we Saved from foiling this Deco Foil Toner Card Front in Chic Chevron!!

I cut a piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheet large enough for the Negative Foil Piece to fit on and ran it through the Laminating Machine Color side up!!

Don’t forget to REMOVE the Clear Film that is left after Foiling or the next Step WON’T Work!!

I Cut Strips of the Gina K Designs Brilliant Blue Fancy Foil and Set them Aside!!

I Cut Strips of the Gina K Designs Sparkling Silver Fancy Foil and Set them Aside!!

Then I Started Layering them over the Foiled Toner Sheet using Purple Tape the hold the edges in place!!

I continued this process until the entire Toner Sheet was covered and then I ran it through my Laminating Machine!!

Once Laminated this is how it looks!! I removed the Negative Strips and was left with a STUNNING Customized Background and I LOVE the way it turned out!! Just imagine ALL of the Color possibilities and the BONUS, you used the Negative Foil so there’s NO Waste either!! I Cut the Panel Down and I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters to add some Texture!!

I Stamped and Embossed the Heffy Doodle Lil’ Lighthouse Image and Colored it with Copic Markers!!
Red: R14, R37 & R39    Blue: B24, B18 & B39
White: N0, N3 & 0    Yellow: Y11, Y15 & YR23
Then I created the Background Panel using Distress Oxide Inks in Hickory Smoke for the Ground, Tumbled Glass for the Sky and Fossilized Amber for the Light, using Purple Tape to Mask and Blender Brushes!!

Super FUN Right!!?? Using the Negative so there’s NO WASTE and you can customize the Panel with ANY Color Combo you desire!! No two have to be alike if you LOVE being able to mix things up!!

For the 3rd Card, I wanted to show how you can both Die Cut and Ink the Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts to Customize the Panel to coordinate with your Design!!

I Cut a Large enough piece of the Gina K Designs Radiant Red Fancy Foil in order to cover the entire A2 Deco Foil Toner Card Front in Candy Stripes!! Then I placed the Foil Color Side up over the Toner Card Front and ran it through my Laminating Machine!!

SWOON!! So BEAUTIFUL right!! Now SAVE that Negative Foil piece as we’ll use it for our next Customized Background!!

I Die Cut the Foiled Toner Card Front using the Heffy Doodle Quilted Heart Background!!

Next, I Cut a Piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets to A2 Size and Cut a Piece of Deco Foil in Ocean Blue large enough to cover the Toner Sheet and ran it through my Laminating Machine!!

Now I have a Foiled Toner Sheet to layer behind the Die Cut Deco Foil Toner Sheet in Candy Stripes!! I LOVE the look in real Life as its just STUNNING when moved in the Light!! I Inked the bottom of the Panel with Faded Jeans and added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters!!

I Stamped and Embossed the Heffy Doodle Lil’ Lighthouse Image and Colored with Copic Markers!!
Red: R14, R37 & R39    White: N0, N3 & 0    Yellow: Y11, Y15 & YR23
Then I created the Background Panel using Distress Oxide Inks in Hickory Smoke for the Ground, Tumbled Glass for the Sky and Fossilized Amber for the Light, using Purple Tape to Mask and Blender Brushes!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment!!

Next I added some of the iCraft Foam Squares onto the Backside of the Rectangle Panel, the Lil Lighthouse!! Then I added them to the Deco Foiled Toner Card Front!! I LOVE the Dimension it adds!!

So FUN right!!?? You can Die Cut the Panels and add another Deco Foil Color behind by using the AWESOME Toner Sheets!! Then by simply adding some Ink, you can even more to your Background!!

For the 4th Card we’re going to using the Negative Foil Sheet again to create another Customized Background!!

I cut a piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheet large enough for the Negative Foil Piece to fit on and ran it through the Laminating Machine Color side up!!

Don’t forget to REMOVE the Clear Film that is left after Foiling or the next Step WON’T Work!!

I Cut Strips of the Gina K Designs Brilliant Blue Fancy Foil and Set them Aside!!
