Elegant Birthday Wishes Card with DecoFoil

Gold-Foil-ThreeDo you love your bling?  Well you are in the right place this week.   Deco Foil sent some of their Foil Transfer sheets to the Design Team to play with.  I love trying a new product so I couldnt’ refuse when I was asked if I wanted to play along.  The team has already shown you how easy it is to use Deco Foil with your laser printer and laminator.  But what if you’re like me and you don’t have a laser printer, or one that uses toner?   What if you don’t have a laminator?   I wanted to think of a way to use the product without these items.FoilWhile working out ideas at the craft store I found Deco Foil Transfer Adhesive.    This is a thick glue that you can apply to just about everything – wood, metal, paper etc.  I love wood veneer embellishments and wanted to see how well the foil would apply.   The Transfer Adhesive has a fine point tip so you can apply it exactly where you want it – think accents or even writing a word.  
Gold-Foil-TwoI generously applied the adhesive to the veneer wood embellishment with a disposable paint brush.  When it was dry I pressed the foil into the glue and it adhered beautifully.  If you miss a spot you can always repeat the process to add more shine.   Tip:  For small embellishments like these bitty wood stars  it helps to adhere them to a sheet of scrap paper before you treat them.  This keeps them put – all in one place.   They’re easy to remove from the scrap paper later when you want to use them.Gold-FoilI love purple and gold together so some beautiful Orchid Twinery Twine is the perfect accent for my elegant birthday card! Gold-Foil-OneDeco Foil and Twinery Twine make a great addition to your crafty stash – they’re both an easy way to make just about everything look elegant and extra special!
