Welcome crafty friends! This is Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook. For Unity week we’re celebrating and creating with all the wonderful collaborative products Thermoweb has with Unity Stamp Co. Today I’m creating a pair of cards using some of the gorgeous toner card fronts, adhesive transfers and deco foil transfer sheets.
Products used today:
Unity Toner Card Fronts
Deco Foil Transfer Sheets – gold glitter and silver glitter
Deco Foil Adhesive Transfers – Sentiments 1
Foam tape roll
Craft & Carrier Sheets
Pink & Main Layered Circles dies
Twiddler’s Nook blending brushes
Lawn Fawn ink – celery, jalapeno, peachy keen and grape soda
I knew the bulk of my projects were going to be foiling so I turned my laminator on right away while I chose toner card fronts, foil and which sentiments I wanted to use. Then I foiled two of the same toner card front – one in silver and one in gold.
Next, I took a piece of black cardstock and foiled adhesive transfer sentiments used the same foil so they would match the card fronts.
- Cut out your sentiments and remove the thin, clear backing.
- Place on your cardstock where you want the adhesive to transfer to. Place in Craft & Carrier sheet and run through your laminator or die cut machine.
- Remove acetate cover and place foil over the top. Place back in Craft & Carrier sheet and repeat the process.
- Voila! Beautifully foiled adhesive. It’s so cool!
- Repeat with second set of sentiments in silver foil this time.
Take your foiled sentiments and cut them out with a circle die. Then trim off the top so it lined up with the top of your card nicely.
Grab your toner card fronts, blending brushes and some dye inks. I did one with purple flowers and very light greenery, while the other has peach flowers and slightly darker greenery. I love them both!
Not pictured, I splatter black paint across the panels for distressing because, well, it’s me and I love that!
I have some gold and silver floral wire in my stash that I wrapped around each card front and secured with washi tape where the sentiment was going to lay. Then I added foam tape to the sentiment circles and popped them in place.
These cards were really quick to pull together but pack a lot of visual punch with the beautiful foiling, hazy ink blending and fun splatters.
I have a goal this year to always have “just because” cards on hand so I can send things out on a whim and not have to plan crafting time. These cards will be perfect for just that!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Love these cards! I haven’t tried ink blending a foiled toner card front, but now I want to!
