Hiya friends! Today, it is my privilege to be joining Spellbinders for a Glimmer Hot Foil Hop! The Glimmer Hot Foil system has been getting a ton of buzz and I’m telling ya, I’ve been playing with it quite a bit. Today’s project was foiled on FABRIC. Knit fabric, you guys!! Like double brushed poly spandex… If you are a fan of the ever popular legging trend, this is the fabric that many are made from. That buttery soft? Yep, this is it!
It is super easy to foil onto fabric. While the Hot Foil platform was heating up, I stabilized the fabric by fully adhering it to 110 pound panel of Neenah Solar White (approximately 5″ x 7″) with Be Creative tape. The solid coverage of dry adhesive holds the fabric securely and does not allow it to stretch or shift. I then trimmed it down to A2 at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ with my Rotatrim trimmer (the best paper trimmer!). I opted to add to lines of wonky stitching with my sewing machine on one panel and a tiny cranberry border on the other.
After the Be Awesome Today Glimmer Plate was heated through, as indicated by the timer light on the unit, I placed the Matte Gold Heat Activated Foil color side down and centered my card panel on top fabric down. The measured guidelines on the heating unit make lining up a snap! I then layered on the thin shim and the thick shim and ran the sandwich through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting and embossing machine. Pull away foil and reveal the glimmery goodness! Adhere finished panel to a folded card base.
The foil adheres to the fabric well for a card, but I do not believe it would stand up to the wear that would be expected for clothing or laundering.
