Super Quick Foiled Cards

by Meetu Aggarwal

Hello,

Thank you for visiting the Mudra Blog, today I am here with two super simple and quick foiled cards. For both of my cards I have used the versatile stencils and sentiment stamps by Mudra.

Card 1:

  1. I took a Neenah Solar white cardstock measuring 4” x 5 ¼ and Mudra Stencil – Plaid.
  2. Firstly, I applied the Thermoweb Deco Foil Transfer Gel through the stencil on the cardstock and left it to dry. You must remember to clean the stencil and the spatula straight away after application.
  3. Once dried, I took the Deco foil Lapis Watercolor and ran the cardstock through my laminator.
  4. As the contrast between the foiled background and the white cardstock was too much, I applied Distress oxide Tumbled Glass using a blender brush. Once satisfied I buffed the background with a paper napkin and wiped the ink from the foiled portion.
  5. I then took a 2” strip of vellum and heat embossed the sentiment. I have used the Mudra Stamps – Sunshine Quote.
  6. I then stuck the vellum to the foiled card stock.
  7. Finally, I assembled the card on a standard A2 size card base, after matting the foiled background on a dark color card stock to create a contrast.

Card 2:

  1. I took a Neenah Solar white cardstock measuring 4” x 5 ¼ and Mudra Stencil – Music Background Pattern.
  2. Firstly, I applied the Thermoweb Deco Foil Transfer Gel through the stencil on the cardstock and left it to dry. You must remember to clean the stencil and the spatula straight away after application.
  3. Once dried, I took the Deco foil Gold and ran the cardstock through my laminator.
  4. As the contrast between the foiled background and the white cardstock was too much, I applied Distress oxide Antique Linen using a blender brush. Once satisfied I buffed the background with a paper napkin and wiped the ink from the foiled portion.
  5. I then took a 2” strip of vellum and heat embossed the sentiment. I have used the Mudra Stamps – Magical Music.
  6. I then stuck the vellum to the foiled card stock.
  7. Finally, I assembled the card on a standard A2 size card base, after matting the foiled background on a dark color card stock to create a contrast.

I will sign off here and hope that you will try making foiled backgrounds.
