There are many ways that you can use gold foil in your card making and one of them is by using a punch to cut them in shapes.
For our last card in the Christmas card series, we’ll be using circles to make a New Year’s Day card.
Before anything else, I’d like to greet you a Happy New Year. Remember to take care of yourself and try to fit in a lot of crafting time to help you relax. As we ride through this pandemic, let’s continue to be kind to ourselves and the people we love.
Ok, so how do we make this card?
- Trim your black card stock to fit your card base. Mine is 5-5/8 x 3-7/8 inches
- Trim a 3/4 x 3-7/8 inch strip of white card stock and stamp your sentiment with Memento Black ink.
- Use a punch to cut 3 pieces of 1-1/2 inch circles in gold foil.
- Arrange the sentiment and circles on your black card stock. Stick them down and then insert into your Woodland Embossing Folder.
- Run the folder in your Cutting and Embossing Machine.
- Stick onto a white card base and your card is done.
Here is a checklist to help you:
- Basic Black A4 Card Stock
- Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad
- Gold Foil Sheets
- Woodland Embossing Folder
- Peaceful Moments Stamp Set
- Make A Difference Stamp Set
Fun Tip: Try this layout with other shapes of punches and embossing folders that you have. Valentine’s Day is coming up so a heart punch will be ideal. Also, change the colour to suit the occasion.
I hope that you enjoyed this card and that you’ll give it a go. I’m excited to see what other cards you’ll be making with this technique.
Also, here’s a card I made using the Woodland Embossing Folder as a background to inspire you.
