Skull And Cross Buns | Crafting With Foil

Back at the beginning of September Skull and Cross Buns was on TV. I had made a bunch of cards in preparation for the show, but with the way life has been the last couple of months I never got around to sharing them. I’ve decided I should get around to it, so I will be sharing them every 2-3 days for the next couple of weeks.

For this first card I did some foiling through a stencil. I started with the Honeycomb Hexagon stencil and laid it over my cream card base. I pounced Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue through the stencil with a sponge. Sponging the glue results in a very thin layer which dries nice and quickly, so there’s very little wait time before moving onto the next step. Once it had fully dried to the tacky, repositionable state, I laid some orange foil over the top and pressed it firmly onto the glue.

After completing my foiling I decided to add a white panel over the top of my card base. I die cut a circle out of the white panel, creating a window through to the foiling. I finished the card by adding some mini embellishments from the Crafting Is My Superpower Embellishment set.

Foiling through a stencil is really fun, and I really like how it looks when it’s done. I like how the windowed panel helps keep the design clean and simple, letting the foil be the focus without it be overwhelming. Have you ever tried foiling through a stencil?
