Title: Make a Custom Foiled Birthday Card with the Foil Quill

Make a Custom Foiled Birthday Card with the
Foil Quill
Steps To Make Birthday Card
  • Step 1. Plug your Foil Quill pen into a USB power
    source. You can use a battery pack for charging
    smart phones, a laptop, a tablet or a wall
    adapter. Youll see a light on the Quill when
    its receiving power (Im using the Standard size
    tip, but a Fine tip and a Bold tip are also
    available either in the All In One Kit or sold
    separately). Let your Quill heat up for about 10

  • Step 2. Insert the Quill into the appropriate
    adapter sleeve for your cutting machine
    (ASilhouette, BBrother, CCricut, DSizzix).
  • Step 3. Place the Quill in the carriage where
    your blade would go. (Some machines have a sketch
    pen holder which you can use as well, just be
    sure you have selected the proper tool in your
    software before foiling.)

  • Step 4. Be sure the cord is out of the way so it
    doesnt get tangled as your machine is foiling.
  • Open an SVG file or use the font tool in your
    software to type your desired message. The best
    files for foiling are single line sketch files,
    and Im using one from the Foil Quill Holiday USB
    Design Drive. Once youve resized your image and
    placed it where you want on your virtual cutting
    mat, its important to make sure you change the
    settings in your software so they work for
    sketching like you would with a pen. Im using
    Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software with
    my Cameo 3 machine.

  • Your settings should be exactly as shown in the
    photo above if youre using the same software and
    machine. If not, I highly recommend joining the
    Facebook Group WRMK Foil Quill for Everyone.
    There are lots of tutorials, tips, and other
    crafters who can help you no matter what type of
    cutting machine you have.
  • Now you need to prepare your cutting mat. Place
    your material down on your cutting mat, then
    place your foil over the material with the shiny
    side facing you. You can use the placement tape
    that comes with the Foil Quill Pens to hold your
    foil in place, or the Foil Quill Magnetic Mat
    works great too!

  • Load your mat into your machine and watch the
    magic happen!
  • Gently peel away the foil from your material and
    say WOW! Pretty amazing, right?
  • Once I finished with the foiling, I mounted my
    cardstock on a contrasting card and added some
    decorative washi tape and a sequin sticker. I
    like to keep the other elements of my projects
    fairly simple so the foiling can really shine!

Thanks again for stopping by, and happy foiling!
