Foil and Flocking Kit


I was playing around with one of the Foil & Flocking Kits that Kim carries on My Favorite Things. What a cool little kit!! It comes with 4 sheets of adhesive and 4 sheets each of foil and flocking. This set is VERY easy to use, simply apply the adhesive rub on, then rub the foil or flocking sheet on the adhesive and you're done.


For the first card I used the images of the women - which was a good match for this sentiment (also from MFT). I applied the foil to black paper, which ended up matching perfectly with the DCWV Rockstar patterned paper. I thought this was a cool looking card to give to a friend!


The second card used a flower rub on and purple foil from this set. I kept the card fairly simple so I could let the foil shine through! It's really shiny IRL... kinda hard to capture with the camera though.


This tag is also carred by MFT - it's a magnetic tag with envelope from Petaloo. I made this one for my daughter to hang in her locker. I applied the flocking to the front of this card... some of it on the vanilla cardstock and some on the red. I wasn't as crazy about the flocking on a darker color - I think it shows up better on the vanilla and probably on a few other light colors. I still have pink flocking that I haven't used yet from this set yet, so I'll have to work on that!

Thanks for looking - let me know what you think of the flocking & foil!

Wonderful... I always love your use of bright colors and I love flocking. I use it right out of the bottle with glue but this looks like a fun way to add that texture to your card...
