Hi everyone, and welcome to Newton’s Nook week here on the Therm O Web blog. Today I have a pair of cards to share that I made with Newton’s adorable Hoppy Greetings stamp and die set along with a new favorite from Therm O Web, Deco Foil Toner Sheets made with kraft cardstock.
Hoppy Greetings Card Set
I mixed golden honey tones with our fabulous bright green Deco Foil Transfer Sheets to create cards perfect for the spring and summer months, and I love how they turned out. Let’s take a closer look.
To begin, stamp and color your images. I used Jet Black Archival ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and then colored using Zig Real Brush Markers. Use Purple Tape to hold the dies securely in place, and then die cut all the images.
Turn on your laminator machine set to the 3mm setting, and allow it to heat up. Place a kraft toner sheet inside a piece of folded parchment paper. Place a sheet of Deco Foil Transfer Sheet onto the Toner Sheet so that the colored side is up and the silver side is down. Run this sandwich through the heated laminator. Peel off the foil to reveal your beautifully foiled pattern.
Adhere the foiled Toner Sheet to a standard A2 card base using Memory Tape Runner XL. Trim a band of patterned paper to fit the height of the card. Add decorative cardstock borders to each side of the patterned paper. Round the bottom corners of the card using a corner rounder punch.
Tie twine around the patterned paper. Add a strip of torn paper and additional border pieces. Adhere the panel to the left side of the card. Place pieces of foam tape behind the image, and add it to the card. Add a small dot of Mixed Media Adhesive to the back of the small flower die-cut, and tuck it into the scene.
Repeat the process to create a vertical card design using the same elements, this time adding a pair of layered die-cut circles behind the images to create a slightly different look.
