DIY Disney Cards: Personalized & Foil Castle
I checked out THIS POST to learn more about it. Jennifer's blog post and video was easy to follow. She is always good about listing her supply list so I purchased the tools she suggested and created some special cards for my Disney friends. I decided that the the "Foil with Print Outs" was the technique that I wanted to try out. I needed a laminator, foil and an image to be printed on a laser printer.
I have boxes of various basic card assortments that I purchase at Michaels craft store. They make a for a good card foundation. I went over to ETSY to find some Disney images that I could purchase so I could create whatever size I needed. There were so many but I decided on THIS ONE as I felt it was a good basic image that I could continually use for other cards or scrapbook pages.
After downloading the image, I worked on figuring out what size I needed in relation to my card base. Once I figured that part out, I decided that I just wanted to add a name and a greeting for personalization. I needed to keep it simple so the image could stand out. After printing out the image on white cardstock, I trimmed my Thermo-Web Deco Foil to fit. I followed the instructions as viewed on the video tutorial.
The foil sticks very well to the laser printed image. It was really easy and result was amazing.
I put some eyelets on each corner for interest and inked up the edges. Then I simply attached it to my selected card base. I wanted to keep it very simple and celebratory.
The next card required a little bit more work since I used two different foil colors. I had to cut the foil pieces to fit the images.
It was really a fun and easy technique to add some sparkle to an image. The basic supplies needed were a laser printed image, a laminator and Thermo-Web Foil (I haven't tried it with any other foil yet but I will). So fun to add some kind of pixie dust to birthday card. Off to make some more fun cards for special people.
