Brutus Monroe Hop - Foiling

Hi crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Today is Wednesday, which means Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team hop day...This week the theme is foiling! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you'll have seen a lot of projects with foil. I love it! It adds such a wow factor to cards! There are a lot of ways to add foil to your cards, with or without a laminator. This project uses one of the new Brutus Monroe sketch foils and one of their laser cut mandalas!

I started by cutting the giant mandala into 4 equal pieces using a paper trimmer. I sponged DecoFoil transfer gel generously all over the mandala section and left it to dry. While it was drying, I put a sheet of double sided adhesive onto a scrap of cardstock and then placed some of the silver sketch foil onto it, essentially making a piece of foiled carstock. I die cut the letters "hola" from that foiled cardstock. 

When the mandala was dry, I ran it through my laminator twice with silver sketch foil. I used liquid glue in a fine tip bottle to stick it onto a piece of Midnight cardstock. I adhered the die cut letters to a strip of Midnight as well, and trimmed it down to a banner shape. I cut a card base and slightly larger banner from Alabaster cardstock and adhered all the pieces together. I finished the card off with some silver Nuvo drops.

Have you used the new sketch foils yet? Share your projects on social media, and be sure to use the hashtags #BrutusMonroe and #CreateYourOwnEnding so we can see what you make!
