Hi crafty friends. Today I have a pair of cards using the Spellbinders Glimmer Cardfront Collection. This is a small collection with large hot foil sentiments and a beautiful layering stencil. The stencil also has a coordinating die available if you weren’t going to hot foil sentiments over the top. I used it in my card earlier this month. Today I have two cards featuring the hot foil sentiments though.
I started with the card on the left because I wanted to pair the stenciled panel with the die cut frame you see and that sentiment fit so perfectly, I couldn’t ignore it.
So, I inked up the Hello Blooms stencil on a piece of white cardstock and then used my Glimmer Foil Press to hot foil the Giant Thank You sentiment over the top of the stenciling. Then I die cut the Scrolled Punch and Pierce Plate from white cardstock. I inked up the inside edge of the largest frame with yellow ink and then glued it to the foiled panel. I didn’t like how much white there was so I went around the outer edge with the same orange ink I used on the flower in the stenciling.
Once that was how I liked it, I just glue the panel to a card base and my card was all finished. I really couldn’t believe how cool this looks and how easy it was to create.
So I couldn’t stop at just one and wanted to try some non-traditional colored flowers next. Why not?!?
This one turned out so pretty! After stenciling the flowers, I hot foiled my sentiment and trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 inches. I was going to pop it up on a white card base but there was too much white for me. So I simply took the same blending brush I used for all the blue flowers and inked up the edge of a white card base with whatever ink was left.
Then I popped the panel up with foam tape for a little dimension. For this card, I thought it would be fun to add some silver baubles for added shine and interest. I seriously love it! Don’t you?!?
