New Therm O Web Unity Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts

Today Therm O Web and Unity Stamp Co. release 5 new designs of Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts.

If you're not familiar with Toner Card Fronts, they are basically beautifully designs printed in toner on A2 white cardstock that can be used in combination with Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Sheets.

The new designs are STUNNING and they work beautifully with all of the Therm O Web foils.

Plus if you use a teeny tiny amount of water and the Karin Brushmarkers you can use the foil as a resist!

But of course that is an extra step that is not necessary...they look amazing just foiled!

Plus, don't forget, once you foil a card front, you can take the foil sheet and place it on a Therm O Web Peel N Stick Toner Sheet to create a foiled image with a black background too! So you get two for one!

I share all these tips and tricks in this video:

All the new Card Fronts and other supplies I used are linked below!

Missees Collection by Karin Joan for Studio Light on Cards!

I was so thrilled when Karin Joan reached out to me to see if I would like to try out her Missees collection!

There are patterned paper pads, die cuts, stamps, dies, washi tap, sequins and more in this gorgeous girly and fun collection!

So many of these supplies could be used in scrapbooking, planners and in other papercrafting, but I am sharing how to use them in cardmaking!

I made a mini slimline, a shaker card, a traditional slimline and more!

I love the patterned paper pads and the gorgeous colors in them.

The girl stamps could be colored in with copics or watercolors or just heat emboss them like I did here in rose gold for an elegant look!

Or even try rainbow stamping for a fun look!

I am sharing all these products and how I used them on cards in this video!
