Greeting Cards decorated with Glue Foil and Deco Foil Flowers and Hearts
These recycled greeting cards are decorated with glue foil flowers and hearts. Gold and red deco foil are rubbed onto the designs for colour.
How to do it
Attach double-sided adhesive tape in stripes onto the front of the greeting card. Don't remove the protective paper layer on the other side.
Cut the piece of glue foil to fit on either side of the double-sided adhesive tape stripes.
Carefully remove the plastic layer from the back of the glue foil sheet. You may need to use a needle to separate the layers. Attach onto the front of the greeting card. Rub the glue foil designs onto the front of the greeting card using a bone folder to attach them.
Remove the other protective plastic layer, revealing the glue designs.
Remove the protective paper layer from the double-sided adhesive tape. Place a piece of deco foil on top of the glue design sheet and rub on the deco foil firmly with a finger, a bone folder or similar. Carefully pull off the deco foil. If the deco foil has not transferred completely, just repeat the process and rub on some more deco foil.
Cut a square piece of card and add a design using the same procedure. Cut a slightly larger piece of black card. Glue the two pieces together and add them to the front of the greeting card using 3D foam pads.
