A floral card using a negative foil piece without a laminator.

Today, for Technique Time at Unity, I show foiling using a negative foil piece without a laminator.  I used the negative of a previously foiled project, noted below.

Remember everyone else is making it up as they go along too.

Here are helpful tips for using a negative foil piece without a laminator.  To begin, pre-stamp, color and fussy cut the flower vase or your focal image as well as the sentiment panel.  Next, cover a pre-trimmed background panel with flat double-sided adhesive.  Then, place the leftover negative foil sheet over the taped cardstock panel, pretty side up.  Rub evenly over the taped area to smooth out the surface as much as possible.  Note, leave the foil attached to the cardstock panel.  Next, trim or die-cut that foiled cardstock panel to suit your project.  As an example, I chose to die-cut an oval from the foiled panel.  Finally, layer everything onto the card base to finish the card.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Here is a photo of two cards made using one piece of foil.  The left card is with the original pink foil sheet with a toner card front.  And the right card was made using the negative of the left card foiling sheet.  This sample on the right was made using foiling without a laminator.
