Project Instructions

  • 1
    Turn on the Minc machine, adjust the settings according to the manual, and wait for the light to turn green (the recommend heat setting for general use is 3). While you’re waiting, create your card’s base by trimming the feather boa cardstock to 6-½" x 9" and then fold in half.
  • 2
    Place the gallery print in the clear Minc transfer folder (one is included with the machine). Cut Gold foil to match the size of what you’re transferring, and then place the Gold foil on top of the gallery print with the foil facing up. Close the transfer folder and smooth the foil out.
  • 3
    Gently feed the hinge side of the transfer folder into the opening in the front of the Minc machine. Open folder and gently remove the foil from the gallery print.
  • 4
    Repeat the steps with the butterflies, using Hot Pink foil for the large butterfly, and Gold foil for the small butterfly.
  • 5
    Mat your gallery print on the Gold glitter cardstock using double sided tape, trim, and then adhere the gallery print to the base. Use foam dots to pop up the butterflies on your card.
