Easy Foil Technique WOW Cards Using Thermoweb Deco Foil

I am LOVING this foil technique that is popping up on Pinterest and my favorite blogs. It’s actually really easy but the results are so WOW!! All you need is: a laser printer, foil sheets, and a laminator. There are other ways to do this technique, but this is the way I did it.

  1. First, print an image on card stock using your laser printer (I have a HP Laserjet CP1525). Toner is what makes this technique possible, so photo copiers would also work.
  2. Next, lay a sheet of the Thermoweb Deco Foil (I found some at Hobby Lobby) on top of your printed image, shiny side up.
  3. Third, place your card stock and foil into a folded piece of computer paper as a carrier for the laminator.
  4. Then, run your paper through the laminator. (I found that I had to play with the settings on my laminator to get it to work. I chose the 6mil setting on mine.
  5. Lastly, just peel off the foil and voila! It’s foiled!

Here are some cards I made using this technique. I have also experimented with colored card stock. My printer doesn’t accept overly thick card stock, so I used a thinner sheet of brown in the Thank You card below. It’s not a very smooth finish so the foil is a little rough looking, but it still looks very nice.
