FOILing Around - Day 1

October 22, 2019

No, that is not a typo. I've been Fooling Around with Foil! I recently purchased We R Memory Keepers foil quill system. I'm using it with my Pazzles Inspiration Vue personal paper cutter. I sound like a commercial. I am not being paid by either company.

I'm liking the foil quilling. It is simple enough to understand and manipulate. I'm going to share my (beginner's point of view) foil experience over the next 3 days. Be sure to tune in and see the progression.

I went simple for my very first attempt. I created my own simple pumpkin with leaves. And I used the leafy pumpkin file from the Pazzles craft room library. You can see from the photo that some of the foil was missed. As a first run, this could be user error in pressure, speed, fol tightness, or other. Also, if the cut mat that is not totally clean (bumps) could cause foil to be missed.

You'll see that the foil adds a nice element to a finished card.
