Hi everyone! It's Julie here back on the blog today sharing a very easy, clean and simple foiled Christmas card using the GoPress & Foil Machine and Diecut'N Bond Tape.


To start I've taken one of the white A6 cards and covered the front with Diecut'N Bond tape. I've also added some tape to a piece of white cardstock - this will be for the die cut.


I've die cut the piece of covered cardstock using the Christmas Baroque background die from the Let Every Day Be Christmas collection. Note: the die should be cutting into the cardstock Diecut'N Bond side up. Foil will be adhered to this piece later on.


Peel the backing from the front of the card exposing the sticky layer then place your die cut piece in the centre of the card front. Don't throw the backing away, this comes in handy later.


Use the backing to help press and stick the die cut onto the sticky card front. It's a lot easier than using just your fingers!


Sprinkle white glitter onto the centre of the card front. Spread it across the whole piece with your finger to burnish the glitter.


Remove the "backing" from the die cut piece then place a piece of vintage matte rose gold hotfoil over the die cut. Press firmly across the whole piece until you can see the pattern as shown below. When you are happy with the result remove the foil.


There may be some tiny areas that missed glitter or foil. Lightly rub your Goodbye Static pad across the entire piece to eliminate any tackiness. That's the first half of the card done.


To create the sentiment I've used the Ornate Christmas Frame hotfoil stamp from the Let Every Day Be Christmas collection and foiled with rose gold mirror hotfoil onto a piece of smooth white card. This is a lovely frame and looks beautiful in rose gold.


Using the same piece I've placed the Merry Christmas hotfoil stamp from the Let Every Day Be Christmas collection in the centre of some vintage matte rose gold hotfoil. Remember to cut as much excess as possible to avoid unwanted foil transfer. Tape down lightly with washi tape avoiding taping over any existing foiled areas.


This is the result. I didn't use any extra shims for this process, only the GoPress & Foil plates. You may need to use a shim depending on your machine's pressure.


I've added a couple of crystal 2mm gemstones, one in each corner of the card and four around the foiled frame. Here is the finished card.
