Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheets Make the Perfect Birthday Card POP

To begin, stamp flowers from the set Bouquet Builder by Waffle Flower on watercolor paper using black ink. Next, color them with your favorite watercolor markers and fussy cut each floral image carefully.

step1

step3

Once your images are ready, is time to create your card base… For the background, cut a 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ panel from Gina K. Designs Premium Cardstock in Black Onyx. Then, cut the card panel diagonally (cutting at 2″ on one side and at 1″ on the other side). Repeat these cuts to create an exact layer from a Polka Dots Clear Toner Sheet.

step5

step6

Cover your Clear Toner piece with the new Plum Deco Foil Transfer Sheet and run it through the laminator (covered with parchment paper folded in half). Peel off the Deco Foil carrier sheet to reveal the foiled pattern. For multiple backgrounds try alternating the Deco Foil color. I decided to also use the new Jade Deco Foil Transfer Sheet on my second background.

Because of the small polka dot pattern on the Clear Toner Sheet and because we are attaching it to a black panel, it is best to use Mixed Media Adhesive. Any adhesive you use will show against a black background, because of the contrast of the color, so as long as you hide the adhesive behind the foiled pattern or an embellishment it will have a seamless finish, so to speak. In this case, what worked best was to add small dots of Mixed Media Adhesive on the back of the Clear Toner Sheet, behind the actual polka dots on the pattern.

step8
step9

Once your Clear Toner Sheet has adhered to the coordinating black panel, add some Sticky Dot Tape Runner on the back of the piece and attach it to a 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ white card base.

step10

Now it’s time to attach your stamped images to your card. Use 3D Zots to add dimension to your images and adhere them to one side of the card front.
step11

Next, stamp a happy birthday sentiment from the set Rainbows by Waffle Flower and cut them into small banners. Attach the sentiments, overlapping them on the floral images. Use 3D Zots to make them pop at the same level of the flowers.

step12

Finally, add some sequins to embellish your background. This is a good opportunity to cover any spots you’d like to conceal.

step13

That’s it for today. Love, love these clear stamps and I can’t wait to make more cards with these images! Make sure to check out what the design team has been creating this week in collaboration with Waffle Flower for more ideas an inspiration. Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.

    The foiling is the perfect backdrop for those pretty florals.
