Deco Foil is a very ver­sa­tile ma­te­rial and can be used with or with­out heat to cre­ate dif­fer­ent ef­fects. On this card I’ve used var­i­ous tech­niques. For the three lines along the bot­tom I sim­ply ran three lengths of dou­ble-sided tape across, peeled off the back­ing then ap­plied teal Deco Foil coloured side up. I gen­tly rubbed over the foil then re­moved it. I ap­plied a piece of holo­graphic gold Deco Foil to a self-ad­he­sive sheet then die-cut the snowflakes from it. For the small snowflakes and dots I used a glue pen to hand draw them on then, once dry, I laid the Deco Foil on top, rubbed, then peeled it away. For the sen­ti­ment I stamped it with an em­boss­ing ink pad then sprin­kled it with WOW! Bond­ing Pow­der. This was then melted with a heat tool and Deco Foil was ap­plied on top. Add a sheet of plain pa­per on top and then ei­ther run an iron over it or run it through a lam­i­na­tor to foil the sen­ti­ment. Deco Foil can also be ap­plied to toner-printed im­ages from a laser printer. Sim­ply lay Deco Foil on the printed im­age then just iron or lam­i­nate.

Deco Foil adds glitz and glam­our to your makes
