Party Girl - Foiling with Adhesive Tape

Good morning! I recently got a Minc foiling machine (it was on clearance at my local Michael's and I finally couldn't resist!) - and while I haven't perfected using it yet, especially since I don't have a laser printer - I have found a few ways to use that lovely foil I have suddenly laying around everywhere! :) Like on this card - using adhesive tape to add gold foil stripes to pattern paper - and I share a Quick Tip video below as well!

Here is that Quick Tip video - showing my process:

I love how super simple and quick it is to add beautiful foiled shine. On the other hand...I really hate trying to take pictures of foiled cards! Seems to NEVER come out looking as good as real life. Oh well - guess you'll just have to give it a try so you can see for yourself!

The image is a new Angie girl from Unity Stamps - I colored it with Copic markers, then tore it out to add an interesting edge. The sentiment I trimmed around straight, then tucked some gold thread under it to help enhance all the gold accents on this card.

Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
