Video | Foiling on Vellum

Hello there, today I have a card and video to share with you where I am hot foiling onto vellum. I found whilst experimenting that vellum not only needs a bit of extra pressure but also a bit more heat. At least for me and my machines anyway!

I started off by hot foiling the Hero Arts Twinkling Stars Hot Foil Plate onto Hero Arts Classic Vellum Layering Paper using Spellbinders Champagne Foil and the Glimmer Hot Foil System. I heated up the plate twice and also added two extra paper shims into the sandwich before running it through my Platinum Six. 

I then took a US A2 sized white card base and cut the largest of the Hero Arts Diamond Infinity Dies in the front panel to create a window. I cut the vellum to size and adhered it to the inside of the card to fill the window. I cut another panel with the same diamond die and adhered that over the top to hide the adhesive. I love that although the this vellum is fairly opaque, you can still see through the window!

I die cut the Hero Arts Number Two (twice), Number Four and Number Zero Fancy Dies from Hero Arts Gold Glitter Cardstock, as well as twice from white cardstock. I added Altenew Double Sided Adhesive Sheet on the back before die cutting and then stacked them up one on top of another before adhering onto the card. 

I show in the video that because I used the adhesive sheet, you cannot see the adhesive through the vellum. For a sentiment, I stamped the 'happy new year' from the Hero Greetings Merry Christmas Stamp Set onto Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock using Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder, heat set and cut it into a strip. It was adhered to the card with black thin foam tape. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:

Whilst I am not a huge fan of gold, it is growing on me a little and I love all the sparkle and shine for a celebratory card! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day!
