A few weeks ago I tried out the Silhouette brand printable gold foil for the first time. I didn’t print anything on it, just cut it out. I loved it! It has adhesive on the backside and it is super shiny! I used it to make borders on some invitations that I had made and so I had some spots on each sheet that I wanted to put to use.
I put the foil on my PixScan mat (which I didn’t think I would like as much as I do!) and opened up my shape. I used the Autumn shape and cut it out on two different pieces of my used gold foil. Once I had the two Autumn words cut out I needed to get them onto my white card stock. I wanted them to be centered and straight so I made a paper guide.
I taped the guide onto my white card stock and then laid the gold letters down by hand. I took the guide and was left with a perfect gold foil Autumn art.
