Hello Crafty Friends!!
Larissa here today to share a couple SWEET Sending You Smooch Cards and coordinating Envelopes using Deco Foil, Deco Foil Flock Sheets, and the NEW Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts!!
Sending You a Smooch with Deco Foil, Deco Foil Flock, and the NEW Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts!!
I started with the NEW Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts in Dainty Hearts and cut some Deco Foil in the NEW Enchanted Rose color large enough to cover the Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts then I ran it through my Laminating Machine!!
TIP: I use a Minc Machine and I like to use the #4 Setting when running the Toner Card Fronts through my Machine!! I use the Deco Foil Parchment Sheets and place a 120 lb, Cardstock Shim, on the bottom of the Parchment Sheet! Place the Toner Card Fronts on top of the Cardstock and then place the Foil on top with the Shinny Color Side facing up!! Then I fold the other side of the Parchment Paper over the Toner Card Fronts and Foil and run it through my Laminating Machine!! I find I get the BEST result when I follow this method!!TooltipText
SWOON!! I LOVE the way these NEW Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts look once they are Foiled!! Just BEAUTIFUL!! Then SAVE that Negative Foil Sheet, we’re going to use it to create the Envelope Liners for our coordinating envelopes!!
I Place the Negative Foil Sheet on to a piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets and then ran it through my Laminating Machine!! Again following the same setup as I mentioned in the TIP above!!
Then I removed the Film and cut a Piece of Red Deco Foil Large enough to cover the Foiled Deco Foil Toner Sheet!! Place it over the top with the Shinny Colored Side Up and run it back through the Laminating Machine!!
SQUEAL!!! This Process NEVER gets Old!! Remove the Negative Foil and you’ve got a STUNNING double Foiled Deco Foil Toner Sheet!! No Waste, and PERFECT for Die Cutting!! Plus, you can keep repeating the Process using the Red Negative Foil Sheet, just reversing the Colors or using a different color combo!!
Next, I created some Deco Foil Flocked Cardstock!! I started with some Red Cardstock!! Placed a Piece of Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets on top and then adhered the Ruby Red Flocked Sheet Side face down onto the Easy Cut Adhesive Sheet and ran it through my Laminating Machine to Burnish the Flock into the Adhesive on the Cardstock!! Then I Die Cut 2 Sunny Studios Scalloped Circle from the Deco Foil Flocked Cardstock!! To use as my Focal Image Background Frame!!
I Stamped and Embossed the Honey Bee Stamps S.W.A.K Stamp Set onto some Distress Watercolor Cardstock using WoW Clear Embossing Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Ink!! Then I heat Set the Images using my WoW Dual Speed Embossing Tool!!
I Cut 2 pieces of Red Deco Foil Large enough to cover the Embossed S.W.A.K. Images and then ran them through my Laminating Machine!! Then I used the coordinating Die to Die Cut the Images Out!!
TIP: I’ve found when Foiling my Stamped and Embossed Images I like the results I get from using the #1 Setting on my Minc Machine!! It’s the first Image on the Left Hand Side!! The Second Image on the Right although still just as BEAUTIFUL was Foiled on the #4 Setting and you can definitely see the difference between the two!! So it’s a choice you’ll have to make, as both are STUNNING but there’s a definite difference between the two!! I hope this side-by-side comparison helps to show the different results that are achieved depending on the setting of your Laminating Machine!!??TooltipText
I wanted the Deco Foiled Card Fronts to have some added texture added to them, so I used the Honey Bee Stamps Quilted A2 Coverplate Die and Ran them through my Die Cutting Machine!! I LOVE the added texture it gives to the Card Front!
Then I Die Cut 2 Circles from some of the same Distress Watercolor Cardstock and Stamped and Embossed the “Sending You A” Sentiment onto the Stitched Sunny Studios Circle Die Cuts using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I Heat Set them and then adhered the Circles to the Deco Foil Flocked Scalloped Circles using some Ultra Bond Adhesive!! I added some Gina K Designs Foam to the Back of the S.W.A.K Foiled Images and added them to the Circles!! Then adhered the Circles to the bottom edge of the Quilted Deco Foiled Toner Card Fronts!!
I created the coordinating Envelopes for the Cards using the SSS V Flap Envelope Die!! Die Cutting the 2Toned Deco Foiled Toner Sheets for the Liner of the Envelopes!! SWOON!! Talk about a STUNNING way to personalize a Special Card!! You WON’T find one of these at Hallmark!!
To finish off the Inside of the Card I Stamped and Embossed the “Smooch” Sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps Smooch Buzzword Stamp Set using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and Embossed with WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I Heat Set it and then finished off the overall design by adding some Red Metallic Lip Sequin Images to both the Front and the Inside of the Card using Ultra Bond Adhesive!! I REALLY LOVE the way that this Card Design came together!!
I created another Card and coordinating the Envelope using the exact same steps only this time I used the NEW Kraft Toner Card Fronts in Dainty Hearts!!
I FUN to see the difference between the colors of the NEW Toner Card Fronts and honestly the possibilities are ENDLESS for the way that you can use them!! I LOVE how EASY they make the Design Process!!
Again I created a coordinating envelope to go along with the Card and I LOVE that you can not only use up your Negative Foils for the Envelope Liners, but the results you can achieve by adding this added touch really does bring your Finished Cards up to that SPECIAL level for a LOVED one!!
Then I finished off the inside of the card in exactly the same way and I REALLY LOVE how these Card and Envelope sets turned out!! No matter what Color combos you decide to use the New Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts are AMAZING and when paired along with the Deco Foils and Deco Foil Flock Sheets the Color Combos are ENDLESS as well!!
