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!
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
