Start with a 1" square from the Leaves All Over and the Stripes. Dots. & Hearts stamp sets. I began by stamping a pattern onto a sheet of white card stock with ColorBox® Archival Dye Ink in Wicked Black.
Alternate with the two stamps to create a pattern 4 wide by 5" high.
Make photocopies of the design stamped out. Please note: in order for the foil technique I am doing to work, you will need photocopies from a laser printer of your original, this technique will not work with using ink or an inkjet printer. Trim to desired size.
Place foil on top of your design and sandwich it with a folded piece of copy paper…
If you do not have a laminator, you can do this technique with an iron as well. Simply layer your design with foil and a sheet of copy paper and iron. Be careful not to go back and forth, simply hold the iron in one place for 10 – 15 seconds, lift and move the iron and repeat.
Pull the foil away and you will see that it adheres to your design. Start by lifting at one corner, if needed, place the foil back down and iron again.
Stamp out sentiment and made photocopy of it and repeat step 4.
Cut a piece of yellow card stock 4 1/4? x 5 1/4? and a piece of white card stock 9? x 5 1/2? (which when in half creates a card base that is 4 1/2? x 5 1/2?). Cut a piece of yellow card stock 1/4? larger and a piece of white card stock 1/2? larger then the sentiment I chose. Attach the design to the yellow card stock and then to the card base. Then, attach the sentiment to the yellow card stock and then to the white card stock and adhere to the card front as desired.
