Hello there, friends! If you live in the US, I hope your 4th of July was safe and wonderful. I was inspired by the patriotic colors for the 4th to create this sparkly birthday card with some of our Simon branded products!
I used our gorgeous Fading Stars stencil to apply Transfer Gel Duo onto my slimline card. I love this paste because it can be used with or without a laminator. It has a tacky finish, which means it will stick to the foil, and with a bit of pressure, you can transfer the foil onto the paste without needing to add heat from a laminator.
Once the paste dried, I used one of my favorite foiling techniques – multi-colored foiling – to create this “star-spangled banner” effect across the card. The foils I used were from Gina K. Designs.
The card is finished up with a happy birthday greeting that I made with our Simon Chunky Happy die and some birthday sentiment strips. A few sequins and star confetti pieces added just a touch more sparkle to complete this festive card!
Multi-color foil is such a fun technique that adds a create “wow” factor to your project. Be sure to watch the video to see how I did it!
