Foiling Vellum & Pearlescent Card

Hey everyone!

Today I have some beautiful ideas regarding foiling. This technique requires know laminator or foiling machine. This gives your cards/projects the wow factor and is quite addictive! I also have a great idea to use up your foiled waste and also something I tried with my iron!

You can create a beautiful effect with one stamp set by cutting your card and letting the vellum peek through. You can find the celebration background stamp here https://www.ppcrafts.net/product-page/a6-celebration-background-stamp

I used non heat activated foil for all of these cards but in the beginning of my video I mentioned that I tried an Iron. I didn’t show the technique as I found it to be a bit of a hit and miss. You may want to give it a go yourself as I did get a couple of decent results with it. Just make sure that your iron is warm and you iron over your copier paper. This was for heat activated foil.

I think this special stamp is turning into a FIRM FAVOURITE of mine!! You basically have an instant card! https://www.ppcrafts.net/product-page/special

I also show you a great way to use up your wasted foil so make sure to check out my video. I will put the link at the end of this post.

I will be back next week with a couple of really cool tutorials!

Love Ann xx

  1. Anne I have a question. Where do you buy all your beautiful large word dies and stamps. Your stuff is gorgeous and I love the large print of a lot of your projects. I so enjoy watching your videos. Enjoy your day.
