1. Hot Foil Sentiment Stacking

Everyone knows you can use your hot foils to make outline sentiments. However, we can take the sentiment one step further by stacking the sentiments for this typographic card. I loved combining classical elements, such as the ink blended gradient and outline floral stamp, with the contemporary sentiment cascade.

I intentionally picked the Waterbrush Hello Die because of the wavy outline. This is more forgiving than a sentiment with fewer angles that would show more alignment mistakes.

2. Hot Foil Acetate Sleeve

I used a specialty heat-resistant acetate for this technique. If you do not have this crafting material, you can hot foil directly onto the sentiment background. The effect of this is subtle up front, but it is a nice interactive element when the card recipient disassembles the card revealing a professional hot foil card sleeve.

3. Hot Foil Floral Veins

This technique is by far my favorite hot foiling technique for steel dies. There are limitations to this technique; you need steel dies that contain debossing shapes. The veining on this Craft-A-Flower: Sulfur Cosmos is perfect for this since we can capture them on the petals.

I hope you try out these 3 techniques in adding foil to your cards with dies you may already have in your Altenew stash. Thank you so much for watching my Perfect Pairings with Jaycee episode on the Altenew YouTube Channel!
