Simple Foiled Thank You Cards by Samantha

Hello! Samantha here with you today. I can never seem to have too many thank you cards in my stash. I thought I'd play around with the new Easy Weed Adhesive and Textile Foil to create some Simple Foiled thank you cards.

To create these cards you'll need card stock, Easy Weed Adhesive, Textile Foil (I used blue and copper), a laminator or heat press, and a Silhouette Cameo or similar digital die cutting machine.

You will use your Silhouette Cameo to create and cut the design you want from Easy Weed Adhesive. When working with Easy Weed Adhesive you must remember to mirror your image for cutting (cut it out backwards). 

Place the design you cut on your card stock and heat it with a heat press (only about 2 seconds is needed for Easy Weed Adhesive on paper) or run it through your laminator. Make sure to peel the backing off of your adhesive as soon as you take the heat off. Do not wait for it to cool down. 

Finally, place a piece of textile foil over your Easy Weed Adhesive design. Apply heat a second time (with a heat press or a laminator). Wait until the foil cools, peel it off, and you have a beautiful foiled design. 

My favorite thing about using foil on card stock is that it shows up beautifully on both light and dark colored card stock leaving you endless possibilities for color combinations.  

I think these simple foiled thank you cards show that simple can also be stunning.
