Foiled Christmas Cards

Card making Christmas cards

If you’re anything like us and mixed media mad, then we can guarantee that you’ll adore Therm O Web’s huge range of innovative products. Perfect for the upcoming festive celebrations, experiment with foil and glitter effects like never before. Pair your foils with the Deco Foil Transfer Gel, give stencilling a go with the Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel and apply flock to your makes for luxurious tactile effects.

Foiled Christmas Cards

Textured Sentiment
Spread an even layer of Deco Foil Transfer Gel through the Gina K. Designs Crazy Daisy stencil onto red card. Lift the stencil and allow the gel to dry completely. Cut Gina K. Designs Fancy Foil in Glimmering Gold slightly larger than the design, slip the layers into a folded paper sleeve and run through a laminator. Peel away the foil backing to reveal the shiny design. Trim to cover one half of a 15cm square blank. Layer pink patterned paper onto the remaining section. Add foil to a Foil Mates Sentiments Tag Tidings and die cut into a circle. Mount onto a larger scalloped circle of pink flock and secure.

Gold Blends
Spread Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel in Velvet Red and Gold through the Gina K. Designs Petals & Wings stencil onto red card, blending the two coloured gels together. Lift away the stencil and leave to dry. Fix Gina K. Designs Fancy Foil in Glimmering Gold to the Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates Holiday Flora sheet with a laminator, then use the same method to create a sentiment panel. Trim the panels into wide strips and fix to the front of a landscape blank. Mount the sentiment onto red card and secure to the left, adding a section of the foiled background to the top-left.

Gel Effects
Stencil the Gina K. Designs Petals & Wings onto green card using Deco Foil Metallix Gel in Pure Gold. Leave to dry, then trim to 9.5cm x 14cm. Create more leaf designs on green card in the same way but this time using Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel in Gold. Trim into a narrow strip, add a strip of pink flock and fix to the left before placing in the centre of a 10.5cm x 15cm green blank. Add a foiled sentiment panel to the top of the card. Snip leftover glittered leaves and arrange these below the sentiment.

Flock Foliage
Spread Deco Foil Transfer Gel through the Gina K. Designs Petals & Wings stencil onto black card, then leave to dry. Cut Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets in Green Envy slightly larger than the panel and feed through a hot laminator twice with the flock at the bottom. Leave to cool before peeling away the backing sheet. Team the flocked panel with a green foiled Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates Background sheet, adding a length of contrasting ribbon down the left. Matt onto a 10.5cm x 15cm teal blank. Create a foiled sentiment panel, mount onto red and secure.
