Is there anything that isn’t better without gold foil? I love it on everything, so I made a cute birthday card with the foil transfer kit.

The foil transfer kit is pretty easy to use.

I’ve used the foil transfer kit to make bookmarks and loved how they turned out. That’s a more in-depth tutorial on using the foil transfer kit, so check that out if you’ve never used it.

  5. Select the card mat from the dialog box. If you’ve never used it, here’s an in-depth tutorial on using the card mat.
  6. Select the material type, either cardstock or the type of premade card that you’re using.
  7. Insert the card into the mat.green card in cricut card mat
  8. Cut the foil to the size of your card. THIS IS IMPORTANT. Not cutting it to size will adhere the foil to the mat. Ask me how I know this…
  9. Tape the foil shiny side up over the card. foil taped to card
  10. Load the mat.
  11. Move the white star wheels over. This prevents making unwanted marks.

  13. Click the start button, and the machine will add the design. It will prompt you to change the tips if needed.
  14. When the process is finished, don’t unload the mat yet. Instead, gently peel back the foil to make sure that the marks are thick enough. If not, let it go through one more pass. foil design on card
