This week I combined the beautiful, new Floral Trio stencil with foil to create a quick and easy birthday card. I love the shine that foil adds to a card.
I taped the stencil to a piece of textured white cardstock and applied Deco Foil transfer gel through the stencil. (The textured cardstock gave a little bit more definition to the flower when the foil was applied.) I removed the stencil and set it aside to dry. Be sure to wash your stencil with warm water right away.
I placed the piece of cardstock on a piece of wax paper to use as a carrier sheet in the laminator. I cut pieces of teal foil and placed them over the flowers, then cut pieces of gold foil and placed them over the strips between the flowers.
I ran the piece through the laminating machine, being careful not to move the foil. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder.
To finish I adhered the piece to a piece of gold cardstock and then to an A2 card and added a few embellishments.
The Floral Trio is just one of the beautiful stencils in the newest Magenta collection and I hope you will try this new technique.
