One of my favourite things to use in projects is chipboard elements and words. But I don’t always want to colour them in the same way – sometimes you want something different. With the GoPress and Foil machine, the game has totally changed and one of my favourite products can now be all dolled up and shiny!
Place the chipboard design face down on your machine to heat up the design.
Once the green light goes on, remove the chipboard quickly using your tweezers.
Place the foil face down on the bed, then place the chipboard with the design you are foiling face down on the foil.
Place a piece of cardstock on top of the chipboard and an extra shim if need be.
Roll the GoPress through the GoCut machine slowly and with a steady speed.
Remove the chipboard from the machine. A quick test to see if it all foiled nicely is to check if you can see the impression of the chipboard shape or words.
Carefully peel away the foil from the chipboard to reveal the beautiful words and effects.
TIP: don’t throw away your negative piece.
Large chipboard surface areas look amazing foiled.
Use a glue stick to adhere your negative foil piece to white cardstock to create an additional element or for a quick card background.
TIP: Apply the adhesive to your cardstock, then carefully place the foil piece down onto the glue and smooth it out using a soft cloth.
Matt your foiled piece on patterned paper to make a quick card and to utilize all of your beautifully foiled elements and off-cuts.
