Tutorial with foil and dies

Tammy Cunliffe

Posted on July 16 2016

Good morning!  Tammy Louise with you here at LDRS Creative with a NEW video tutorial!  I've fallen in love with the technique that makes your die cuts shine and shimmer with craft foil!  

I will share some steps with you here as well, ready?  Grab a pen!

1. Choose your favorite LDRS Creative die

2. Emboss some card stock with clear, fine embossing powder.  A large enough area to cut with your die choice

3. Heat up your powder on the stock and cut your die out

4. Cut a square of foil large enough to cover the embossed and heat dried die cut and place the die cut down (embossed side up), place the shiny side foil up on top of the die and place them inside parchment or printer paper with a fold so that the paper creates a creased folder.

5. Heat up your lamination machine and place the scored edge of parchment/computer paper through! 

That's all there is to it!  When you've run it through, the heat and pressure melt the embossing powder again and it adheres to the foil!  Peel your die cut away from the foil and it's done!  You've gotta try it!  It's a stunning technique!

Watch the LDRS Creative You Tube tutorial to see me create this step by step!!
