I started my layout by picking the paper collection I wanted to work with. This allowed me to choose foil and flock colors that would go with the layout colors. Since this paper collection has a floral theme, the Deco Foil Card Fronts in Spring Fling were my go-to for some layers!
Using the new Deco Foil Carrier Sheets, I foiled the two panels in Deco Foil Glass Slipper.
I love how this foil color looks either blue or green, depending on the light! And don’t you think a panel that pretty needs to be seen on a layout?
For the next step, we need to complete the background focal layer. I first cut out those rainbow strips from another sheet of pattern paper. Then, I carefully cut between each color to create a type of fringe. After cutting, I rolled each end up, leaving various lengths. This paper was attached to my foiled card fronts and then adhered to my background paper with the 3D Foam Tape 1/16th. This gives it some dimension without being too bulky.
I felt like I needed something a little extra at the top, but wanted to mimic a little of the bottom strips. The cover of the 6×6 pad for the collection to the rescue! Along with my Memory Runner XL, I adhered a couple of strips from the cover together to tuck behind at the top of my page.
Now for title work! I did use some letter stickers from the collection, but thought the elegance of the letter dies would look wonderful combined with some flock!
When using the Deco Foil Foam Adhesive for die-cutting and flocking, I always attach my foam sheet to cardstock, especially for detailed or delicate cuts. This keeps the foam from stretching out of shape when removing the flock transfer sheet. Bonus is that it also gives your die cuts a little more stability and heft to them! Then run thru your manual die cut machine to transfer the flock to the die-cut!
I used the Pink Carnation Flock as my color choice. I will be honest, I use this color a lot! It’s one of my favorites! I used some foam adhesive to pop my letters up at the bottom of my picture. I also love the color shift the flock did with the colors in the paper collection! Not intentional at all, but a happy accident!
Try using just bits and pieces of foil and flock together on your next layout! It doesn’t have to be a bunch or overwhelming at all! I love the softness the flock gave and the pretty enhancement that the foil gave!
