DIE CUTS WITH FOIL

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you another technique or product that you can use with your die cuts. As you know the foil is one of the most popular products right now and you can use it with our die cuts in just one step.


To show you how to work with foil, I chose the Flowery Butterfly Die Cut. This is a beautiful shape that you can use for many occasions alone or combined with other die cuts.


The first thing that you have to do is to cut your die cut on the black cardstock that comes with your foiling machine. If you don't have a foiling machine you can use a laminator machine and  you can create the black cardstock, printing a complete black page on a laser printer using cardstock as paper. Then you can cut your die cut with this.


Select the color of your foil and prepare your machine. If you are working with a laminator, you need to wait until the heat reaches the highest temperature and stays there. Create your "sandwich" and pass it through the machine. 


At the end you will have the most wonderful metallic flowery butterfly and you can create your project.



To make my card I used a big word from an Altenew Stamp Set called Super Scrip 2, a Designer Paper from Stampin Up, a Whisper White Cardstock and some yellow thread. 


Before I leave I want to say thank you to Lynne Forsythe, for her wonderful coordination on this team and friendship. Good luck!

See you soon!!!
