How to make a vintage card with Transfer Foil and no heat tools!

A couple of weekends ago I made a card for a   Friendship challenge using Transfer Foil and no heat tools!  I thought I would share it with you today. 

Here is my card: 

And here is the easy process:

I stamped my image using Archival ink on watercolor paper.

I colored with distress inks

I used Best Glue Ever for the foiling and all layers of adhesion.  First the crown;

Very simply fill in the area with a thin coat of BGE

Let it dry for a few minutes, then place the  Scraperfect transfer foil on top - shiny side up. Let the foil sit on the area for about 3 minutes, burnish with your finger and then lift off

For the second area of foiling, I apply a thin bead of Best Glue Ever 

And then used a palette knife to smear ( not sure of the art term for this!) the glue down and again place the transfer foil on top and let dry for a couple of minutes.

you simply pull off the sheet and the gold is adhered to the paper!

And for the bow - no more hot glue burns! 
Best Glue Ever  holds it perfectly! 

Easy and beautiful!

I hope you give this a try with your card making and paper crafting or even on your mixed media  and Objects de`Art

Thanks for stopping by!
