Foiled Graduation Cards

Foiled Graduation Cards

As I mentioned yesterday, my kids needed quite a few graduation cards for their friends this past spring/summer, and I made several, simple designs that were easy to duplicate.  I had never done foiling before, so I thought I’d give that a try.

Here is a sample made with silver foil.

Etsy , with its huge supply of digital papers and images, is a great source for elements to print and foil (if you have access to a laser printer).  You can find a huge variety of designs in a range of prices, and once you own the files, you can print as many as you like, as often as you like.

I created the background panels from a file from the “Graduation Digital Paper Pack” by DeerCustomDesigns.  I imported the image into Printshop and added the blank text box in the center so I could stamp my greeting.  Once the panel was designed, I printed multiple copies with my laser printer (foil transfers to toner but not ink), trimmed them to size, and foiled the panels with either Gina K Red Velvet Fancy Foils or Therm O Web Silver Deco Foil and my mini Heidi Swapp MINC foiling machine.  (A laminator can also be used.)

The greeting on the front is by Rubber Stamped.  The inside sentiment is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps.  I used Gina K Red Velvet, black and white card stock.  The foiled panel is on laser printer paper from Staples.

The frame on the first sample was created with my We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board.

This background is from the “Black and White Digital Paper Pack” by LittlePandaDreams also purchased on Etsy.  This could be used for a number of occasions.
