I have finally had a chance to play with some new goodies from Gina K Designs. I ordered the Poly Glaze Sheets awhile ago and used them for this card. I have to tell you if you are still on the fence about foiling, these are an excellent way to try foiling inexpensively. All you need is some Deco Foil and an inexpensive laminator. It is SO easy.
The most important thing to do when using these sheets is to allow your laminator to heat for at least 20 minutes. Grab some parchment paper and cut to 6” x 10” and fold in half. Select your Poly Glaze sheet. Cut a piece of Deco Foil to fit over it. Place it on the sheet, shiny side up. Insert it inside the folded parchment paper, folded edge goes in first.
Once out, peel off the foil and save it. You can use this with solid toner sheets. Look at the shine! So pretty!
Now using the three new Lilac inks or any inks of your choice and ink blend the panel. You will always foil first THEN ink blend.
Trim the panel down. Then place the Love die from the Love You Trio set. Place it toward the top in the center and die-cut the word. Repeat this with a piece of white card stock.
Cut three pieces of white card slightly smaller than the Love rectangle and glue them together. Glue the white Love rectangle on top. Glue the foiled letters inside. Don’t forget to glue the white, center of the O.
Using the Master Layouts 2, large rectangle cut a piece of black card stock. Adhere it to the foiled panel.
Add foam to the back of the sentiment block and adhere in the opening.
I also stenciled and die-cut one of the butterflies from the Fluttering Fall Stenciling Bundle. This is a fabulous bundle. I also chose a small sentiment “you so much” from the bundle and stamped it with VersaMark ink onto a purple scrap. I heat embossed it with silver powder.
I added foam tape to the back of both and added to the main panel. I centered the small sentiment on the LOVE die-cut.
I used a shimmer pen on areas of the butterfly wings. Glitter drops or small gems would also be irk!
For the main card base I cut a piece of heavy card stock and embossed it with the Gingham Embossing Folder from Gina K. Then all of this was adhered to a top-folding A2 card base.
This card was very easy and probably came together in under an hour. A bonus is I have another LOVE block for another card!
