Deco Foil Printed Card

Hi everyone today I have a quick printed card with Deco Foil. I  was wishing I had a laser printer  and Deco Foil before I got married as I could have created my own invitations for a lot less. Even if you don't have a laser printer you could do something similar using laser copies from a place like Kinkos. Print your design with your ink jet and then take that copy in. :-)

This turned out better than I had expected. Here is my card.

I started by creating my design in my cutting machine software  by drawing a rectangle the size of my card and arranging my design and sentiment. Then I used my eBrush with a lattice stencil and marker to make my background.  After the background was done I put my paper into my laser printer. Then after it was printed I applied my Deco Foil and ran it through my laminator. If you don't have a laminator I've heard you can use an iron but I haven't tried it.

Now I need to buy even more Deco Foil. Deco Foil is made by Therm O Web and there are a lot of colors available. You can read more about it and  even watch some tutorials on their website on how to use it  by clicking on the image on the left.

You can also do your background and then print an image without using foil. In fact I'll be later on printing images with my laser printer and coloring.

Thank you for stopping by. My next project with Deco Foil will be using it with a stencil. Just waiting for the special adhesive to come by mail as I tried other adhesives and they did not work. :-( 

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!


  1. This is so very, very pretty. Your eBrush does such a nice job, and your foil is gorgeous. Off to check it out.

  2. Lovely card.
    I read a couple of other ways to do things with Deco foil that don't require a laminator or laser printer. Now all I need to do is invest in some Deco foil. lol


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. :)
