Today I’m sharing easy ways to combine foiled toner card fronts and cover plate dies from your crafty stash. This is a great way to use foiled pieces that may have some imperfections.
My first card uses the Thermoweb Chic Chevron foiled in Deco Foil Brutus Monroe Rainglow. I love this foil so much with all its sparkle and rainbow goodness. After I foil the toner card front I used Taylored Expressions ink to create a ink blended rainbow over the foil. The foil resists the dye ink and you are left with beautiful ink blending combined with the gorgeous foil pattern. Next I simply die cut a cover plate with black cardstock and placed it over my foiled background. Next I ink blended another rainbow and die cut it with a heart die. I added a sentiment and some TE drip drops. I love how dramatic this looks with the black and rainbow elements.
My next card uses the negative foil piece from card one. I always have toner sheets on hard so I can foil using my negative pieces. For this one I liked the black toner that was left behind after foiling but you can also run this piece through the laminator again with a fresh piece of foil to cover any remaining black toner and the result would be a 100% covered piece.
I then used the same cover plate this time die cutting with white cardstock. I layered it on top of my foils piece and then used a scrap of the Rainglow foil and a scrap of toner sheet to create the heart element on the card. Then I stamped a simple Taylored Expressions sentiment and popped the whole thing on a black card base. I used a few TE drip drops and that finished the card. So I was able to make two cards with one toner card front and a piece of toner sheet.
My last card uses the same cover plate and this time I used the companion die and small pieces of scrap Deco Foil Rainglow foil and toner sheet to die cut the cute little pinwheels. I ink blended a rainbow on a piece of Hammermill 100lb smooth white cardstock, die cut the cover plate in white and layer them together. They I popped the three foiled elements on the card with iCraft liquid glue and some TE drip drops and a little die cut sentiment. This really is a bonus card just using small pieces of foil I could let go to waste. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
