Here is another card I have made with my foiling machine.
This lovely card was made with a background paper with the music and Vintage lady on it from this site It was a freebie sheet and there are many more there as well. Now that being said, next photo;
I started by printing the sheet resized to 5 1/2 square inch. Then printed on the laser printer all in black always. Once printed on the paper I had already stained with Tim Holtz distress inks I used Old Paper and Tattered Rose), and freely rubbed the ink pad direct to paper to make an old looking finish on a SU whisper white. Then came the fun time to foil it with gold (yes all colors can be used on the foil machine, as long as they are purchased from a store that sells them for that effect). Once the cardstock was passed through the foil machine covered with another piece of paper, this is the result I got.
The following step was to cut the excess cardstock and fold it in half. We get a 5 1/2 square inch card so far. Then I designed the tag on Paint Shop Pro added a bow and wrote my note. Again I printed this on a stained paper as stated above and foiled it. I used some 3 dimensional glue pad.
The last bit is to color the vellum paper the same way I did for the cardstock inside and out. Let it dry and I formulated my wishes to the Birthday lady Gloria and also printed it on laser printer/foiled and voila!
I hope you enjoyed my newly made card with my foil machine. Now I have to pause on the foil machine as I have to make so many cards. Foiling is great but you also have to think about the time it consumes just to make your own designs to print. Nothing can be foiled if it has not been printed through a laser printer. This is rule #1. So if you are alert on any Image Editor Software, you will enjoy this new way to make cards. This is so enjoyable, it makes me want to see how many other medias this could work with and what tools do I have in my possession can be used to come up with better ideas. I will share all my next cards. So keep on coming back. Don't be shy to leave your comments, it is always so very appreciated. It is encouraging creativity so if you want more, leave your impressions on what you see.
Have a lovely day everyone
