How to use Foil Papers

20201026_144824

Foil papers are very impressive, especially when embossed!! This is the Brushed Metallic Cardstock #153524 embossed with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder #153576! It's a WOW!

 

20201026_103524

Liquid glue shows thru the foil and can leave a ridge on the front side of the foil. I prefer a strong dry adhesive like Tear & Tape #138995 when using foil papers. When using Tear & Tape, apply it and then rub firmly before peeling off the backing. This strong adhesive is a must for using Foil papers, building 3D projects and cards with motion.

 

20201026_144755

This is a simple card with BIG IMPACT because of the Brushed Metallic finish!! Try it!!

How cute are these overalls created with the All Dressed Up Dies #151665 that made the "purses" in my last post?!?!?!? I cased this adorable idea from Australian Demonstrator Michele Jutrisa.
