Hello and welcome! Seeka here and today and I’m sharing a foiled card that features a layer from the Viola Plate layer set. Foiling is a great way to get extra mileage out of your dies!
To start, I created a background by using foam blending tools to blend Shaded Lilac, Wilter Violet, and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide inks onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock.
Next, I prepped my foiling machine. Holding the Viola Layer A die and the ink-blended panel in my hands, I centered the die over the panel and then flipped the two upside down, together, and placed it onto the heating platform. Taking care not to move the panel in relation to the die, I used a piece of Post-it Tape to tape the panel down at one end, creating a hinge. I swung the panel up and then placed a piece of gold foil over the die, shiny gold side down. I replaced the ink-blended panel and then followed the instructions for my foiling machine to foil the panel. Below is an example of the order and orientation of the die, foil, and ink-blended panel on the heating plate (when I went to actually foil, I aligned all these pieces, as described above).
After peeling away the sheet foil to revealed the foiled panel, I adhered a sentiment that I made using the Big Hello Sugar Script die set, gold mirror card, and vellum.
Thank you so much for visiting!
