Today I’ll be sharing the step-by-step for creating a simple birthday card with a fun Metallix focal panel.

Deco Foil Metallix Birthday Card

To begin, create a standard A2 card base from Therm O Web Luxury White cardstock. Ink a large background stamp with Gina K Designs kraft ink and then press the front of the card onto the inked stamped to transfer the design.

Cut a smaller panel of Gina K Designs kraft cardstock. Using Therm O Web’s Purple Tape, adhere the cardstock to the back of a stencil.

Using a palette knife, or the new Stencil Pal, apply a thin coat of Metallix gel through the stencil design. Scrap off any excess gel and return it to the jar. Remove the stencil from the paper. Set the paper aside to dry and immediately wash your stencil and palette knife with warm soapy water.

Stamp an image and sentiment onto Luxury White cardstock with black ink that works with alcohol markers. Trim the sentiment out into a thin strip. Color the image with Copic markers and add accents with a white gel pen before fussy cutting or die cutting the image.

Once the Metallix gel is completely dry, wrap some baker’s twine around the bottom of the panel and tie it into a simple bow on the left side. I wanted the loops of my bow to stay completely parallel with the edge of the cardstock to keep it from covering the sentiment, so I added a drop of Ultra Bond adhesive under the knot and held the bow in place for a few moments.

Now simply use Gina K Designs Foam Squares to attach all the elements to the card.
