Silhouette UK: Double-sided adhesive and foiling

Hello, I hope your week is off to a great start. You all know by now, I love to make cards. And when I can combine card making and my Silhouette Cameo it is even better. Well today I have gone one step further and add foiling into the mix as well! Today I show you how to create a card using Double-sided adhesive and foiling along with your Silhouette machine.

Double-sided adhesive and foiling Card process overview

Start by placing your design in your design space in Silhouette Studio. A design with quite a lot of plain shape/area to cut at isn’t too intricate works well for this. I found that the cut settings on the machine worked fairly well, but I set it to pass 3 times. Make sure it will cut all the way through the backing sheet to make it easier to get the design of the mat before peeling and exposing the adhesive sheet.

There is a chance that I could have had my sheet facing the wrong side up, but as I didn’t want the backing to come off either side until I had it off the mat it didn’t matter as both sides once peeled are adhesive

Remove the cut design from the mat – the spatula from Silhouette works well for this! Next, peel the backing off and positioned the design down onto the card. Then remove the front release sheet to expose the adhesive and place a piece of decofoil over the top, the colour side facing upwards. Using your finger, burnish the foil into the adhesive and peeled the sheet away to reveal the foil left on top of the adhesive. 

To assembled the cards, I added a stamped sentiment and some white Nuvo drops.
