Clearly Foiling

Hello friends!  I had so much “foiling fun” that I kept going with making more!  This time, I’m using those “clear sheets” from the Designer Toner Sheets:

For my Christmas card here, I’ve used my laminator to foil over the “clear sheet” from the Peppermint Twist Designer Toner Sheets with the Red Static Foil Sheets.  This creates a “see-through” area for the shaker contents.

For the shaker part, I’ve taken a Self-Adhesive Shaker Pouch, attached it to a piece of white cardstock, very carefully trimmed off the edges, filled it with lots of sequins and confetti stars and then sealed it up to keep the contents inside moving freely.  I then placed the clear foiled piece over top of it by using some Stick-It sheets which helps to keep the adhesive from showing through.

I then took an A2 sized top folding white card base and used some score tape along the two edges and then rubbed some of the Gold Static Foil over it.  I then took the shaker panel and mounted it over top.

The greeting and the Santa hat were attached over top from the Yuletide Greetings stamp set that I’ve cut out using the Yuletide Greetings Cut File.  I’ve colored up the hat with Copic markers and then added some glitter over the fur trimming.  I’ve just used my Xyron machine to run adhesive on the back of these pieces to adhere them.

I’ve added a ribbon in the upper corner with a couple of gold bells tied to the center of the bow.

So I continued on with my “foiling fun” by also making Halloween too….

My second card uses one of the clear sheets as well from the Carved Designer Toner Sheets and I’ve used the Orange Sketch Foil sheet over that.  Since this is a clear sheet, I thought it would be fun to make the pumpkin faces stand out a little bit.  So I turned the sheet over and added some glitter behind each pumpkin face and let it dry.  (This might take some time to dry depending upon how thick you make it.)  Once dry, I took a Stick-It sheet again to attach it to a piece of black cardstock.

I mounted this over a piece of Green Neon Cardstock that I’ve also used for my sentiment banner.  I then added these layers over an A2 sized top folding card base.

Here you can see the glitter showing through pumpkin faces and how they appear to somewhat “glow” with the darker panel behind them.

For the sentiment banner, I took the sentiment from the Trick or Treat stamp set and heat embossed it with the Raven Sparkle EP and cut it into a banner.  I added a small wooden pumpkin for the accent that I painted with orange paint and clear glitter paint over that.
