The Christina Collection - Hot Foiling with an Embossing Folder :D

A pair of Wedding or Wedding Anniversary cards using some of the new additions to The Christina Collection from Card Making Magic, exclusive to :D I've been experimenting with my Go Press and Foil machine, and the Flourish folder was just screaming out to be foiled hehehe :D To do this technique with the Go Press, you need to buy a metal shim, this doesn't come with the machine, you might even have one from a die-cutting machine too, and you also need to let your machine get nice and hot!! leave it longer than you think and make sure to run it through the machine slowly to get a good coverage :D Also to transfer the negative foil, make sure to add in a few extra shims to get enough pressure for a clean transfer! It's not always 100% perfect, but I'm very happy with the results! And the heat doesn't affect your folder at all! I was worried about trying this to begin with, so I used a folder that had come free on a magazine, but seriously, all the folders I've used have been totally fine :D :D :D Hope you enjoyed the video!! :D
