Foiled Cards!!

Hello everyone! I just bought a laminator and jumped into the foiling bandwagon and now I cannot stop!! Do you feel that way? Well, this week, Brutus Monroe is collaborating with ThermoWeb and we are sharing lovely projects using both company products. Here are my cards (I couldn't stop with just one card):



I have made videos explaining how I foiled these cards. I use a very inexpensive Scotch laminator that I bought from Walmart. I do give some tips on getting a good foiling in my videos. I hope you'll watch them.

For the first card, I used the Gold Shattered glass foil from Thermoweb. I used 2 different techniques to foil the stamped image and the sentiment. Here's another look of the card.


A close up on the cups before coloring.


These pics don't do enough justice to the Gold Shattered glass foil!! Please do watch my video to see the beautiful shine.

Here's my video:



For the second card I decided to use Aqua deco foil on Aqua card stock. I have used few different techniques of applying foil on to card stock. Please do watch my video to see them in action.

Here's my video:


Here's another view of the card.


Also, Thermoweb is generously offering a $25 GC to one winner who will chosen among comments left on the Thermoweb blog/Facebook and/or Brutus Monroe blog/Facebook this week.

Wow, these are exceptional cards. Thank you for joining our previous Challenge and would like to invite you back to our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I would like to leave you with one of the greatest verses in the Scripture from Romans 5:8 which says, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Have a wonderful day!
