Yay for YupoPosted: May 14, 2018
I’m sharing some sweet patterned cards over on the Foiled Fox blog today. Pop over there to see how I made these alcohol ink and foil cards.
I used heavy weight yupo paper which was great to work with and I love the shine of foiling over alcohol ink!
I ran my alcohol ink panel through my Minc on the zero heat setting but you don’t have to have a minc; you could use your die cutting machine to apply pressure or just burnish with your fingers to get the foil to stick to the alcohol ink.
The ‘Yay for you’ set from My Favorite Things gave me all sorts of options for sentiments; I settled on a baby card and an achievement/congratulations card. You can read my step by step instructions over at the Foiled Fox.
