Deborah here, and I've got a fun way to jazz up your scrapbooking and cardmaking. Foil!
I started out with this card to add to the title page of my 2013 album. I used quite a few metallic cards from My Mind's Eye for this group and I'd been looking for something to add to the top pocket to finish it. Although I matched the gold color on the rest of the cards, it just didn't look the same printed onto cardstock.
ScraPerfect's Designer Transfer Foil to the rescue! I used a fine brush and squeezed a bit of the Best Glue Ever onto a piece of wax paper. Then I carefully brushed the glue along the letters on the card. Since I was applying it thin, it dried very quickly to tacky.
Next, I took a piece of gold foil and placed it on my card (gold side up) and just rubbed. Much better!
And here's the finished card in my album -
Tip: if you're using the Best Glue Ever with a brush, make sure you have a bottle of the Best Cleaner Ever handy. You want to clean your brush right away before the glue dries. Just spray a bit of the Best Cleaner Ever in the palm of your hand and rub the brush into the cleaner using circular motion. Then rinse the brush in water.
