A little while ago I got a Heatwave Foil Pen from We R Memory Keepers and I couldn’t wait to use it! While creating the Warm & Cozy cards for today’s blog post I realized that this was the perfect opportunity to give the Heatwave Pen a try. The colors and beautiful designs of this collection are perfect to add some extra foil accents to. Here’s what I created:
The Heatwave Pen came with a couple of foil sheets and I also got some fun templates for it. I used the top template (Script) for both my cards and chose a red and a gold sheet of foil.
The cards I created measure 4″ x 6″ and 6″ x 4″ and have a white cardstock base and two layers of patterned paper. Before adhering the patterned papers to my cardstock base I added the pennants and machine stitched along the outer edge of the top paper. Now I was ready to add the foil accents. Here’re a few photos how I did this: I used some washi tape to (temporarily) adhere my papers, template and foil to my cutting mat, so everything would stay in one place while foiling:
Because the foil pen becomes very hot you need a cutting mat or a glass plate as a working surface. The foil pen can be held just like you would a normal pen and without adding a lot of pressure you just follow the template.
It’s very easy and I really like the result! Next I adhered the papers to the white cardstock base and I added a few embellishments. Here’s a closer look at the cards. On this card you can see what the gold foil looks like:
And on this card you can see the red foil:
I really like the extra texture the foil gives!
Hope you like my Warm & Cozy cards! I can’t wait to see what you’ll do with this collection!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Wishing you a fabulous day!
