How To Foil Your Cards by Karen Hightower

Using Foil-Mates by: Gina K. Designs for Thermo Web, foiling backgrounds and sentiments and solid toner sheets that were foiled to be die cut.

Here are the items I used for this card:
Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils, Sentiments and Dies for Therm -O- Web Foil-Mates: Swirls & Flourishes — True Friend Fancy Foils : Grass Green and Sweet Mango Dies : Squares : Small set and Large set Sheer Satin Ribbon: White/Gold Pure Luxury Card Stock - White Heavy Base Weight & Sweet Mango 
These items are available over at Gina K. Designs

I used a minc for the video, I am waiting on my new Royal Sovereign to come in. It is the one Therm-O-Web test their products on as well as it is the one Gina uses in her shop to do the foiling. 

You can pick up a Royal Sovereign Laminator over at
I also used Copic Markers YR18, G20, G24

I have purchased all elements of this card and made it. I love it.
Can you please tell me what glue or adhesive to use on the release sheet of foil? I would like to use it for another card like you suggest, but not sure how to attach it. Thank you.
