Another step-by-step “how to do it” article by Lynn Taylor-Lack, on how to get this lovely Hot Foil effect using Lavinia Stamps products and a little bit of bold imagination…
This time she has deployed our “Mushroom Fairy” cutting file in a unique manner to come up with something rather special.
In addition to a Cutting Machine such as Scan n Cut, Silhouette or a Cricut, you will need access to a Lazer Printer as this technique will not work with inkjet printers. If you don’t have a laser printer you can buy toner sheets off of the internet or you can go to your local High Street Printers and ask them to print one out for you (as long as they use toner, it will work). You will also need a computer to create the toner template, and a Minc or a Laminator.
Lavinia Stamps cutting file of your choice
Smooth White or Cream Card
Trimmer or Scissors
Step by Step
Be careful with the foil as it is very flimsy and it can scratch easily (this will transfer onto your image and doesn’t look very nice). Also it is very thin so make sure you are only using the one sheet.
The possibilities are endless! Enjoy and have fun!
