Foil Stamped Halloween Card with Deco Foil and Brutus Monroe

I prepared a quick video showing you how I made this background and card. Note that the background foil stamping fragment is set in real time. This is key because you can’t keep the stamp on the paper for too long, otherwise, the paper will stick to your stamp. So the secret is to kiss the paper with your stamp and that will apply enough adhesive to do your foiling.

Something I tried out for the first time on this video was using Deco Foil White Foam Adhesive cut into small pieces as foam tape. What I love about the Foam Adhesive is it adds just a little dimension to your embellishments, so they’re not flat on your card. If you like to add much more dimension to your card elements you can use Therm O Web Foam Squares instead!

Foil stamping will always have a nice distressed look, which in this case worked great with the card theme. The result will always depend on the stamp design or even the kind of stamp you’re using. I’ve found rubber stamps usually work better with this technique.

IMG_20171020_144033-As a final recommendation, know that the stamp you use needs to be cleaned right away after stamping Deco Foil adhesive. This is very important, no matter the tool you’re using always make sure to wash it after you use it with any kind of adhesive.
