Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Trio

by | Feb 19, 2019 | Backgrounds, Birthday, Blog, Foiling, Happy Thoughts, Paper Piecing, Spellbinders, Thanks

Hi there! I hope you are having an awesome day! Today, I am guesting once again for Spellbinders. I am excited to be sharing on their blog and thrilled to share my newest projects here too! I’ve created three cards with a similar technique and feel, each with Glimmer Hot Foil as a focal point. I cannot get enough Hot Foil!

Keeping ideas simple is a great way to complete several cards without having to reinvent the wheel with each go. When a design works and you love it, keep it going with slight modifications to keep it fresh. When you’ve completed a set, you’ve got several cards ready to go for your stash or to gift!

 

I began creating this A2 trio with a bright bold background to really make the foiled sentiment pop. Cut cardstock into 3/8 inch strips. Apply a paper backed dry tape adhesive to cardstock. Leaving release paper in place, trim to 4 ¼” x 5 ½”. For the strips I used Hero Arts new cardstock in Cranberry, Cherry, Peony, Paradise and Adriatic. I used Dove White for the backer, but a darker shade (more similar to the strip colors) would hide any possible gaps between the paper strips.

Remove release paper and adhere bright strips diagonally corner to corner, butting them together, building out. When complete, flip panel to back and trim along cardstock backing panel. Glimmer Hot Foil Happiest Birthday in Matte Gold, trim and adhere in place with dimensional adhesive.

You can find the project supply list HERE.

Repeat steps to create dry tape adhesive backing panel. This time apply ¼” bright cardstock strips vertically. Adhere white cardstock to each side, flip to back and trim along backing panel as a guideline.

Using the gridlines on the Glimmer Hot Foil System base plate, center Thank You Very Much Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. Place Matte Gold foil dull side up over plate and carefully center striped panel in place. Complete sandwich, adding an extra scratch paper shim if necessary, to allow a complete foil transfer to the paper strips.

Again, create dry tape adhesive backing panel. This time align cardstock strips horizontally. Add a Scattered Dot Pattern foil design, again in Matte Gold, to basic white cardstock. Adhere to either side of the stripes and flip to trim off excess from the back.

Matte Gold foil Tiered Cake Glimmer Plate and Everyday Sentiments II, “Birthday Wishes,” onto white cardstock. Trim cake down to 3 ¼” x 4 ½” and pop in place with dimensional adhesive. Trim down birthday sentiment cutting banner details on sides. Pop this in place with dimensional adhesive, as well.

Adhere each to an A2 folded card base and give. Give a set as a gift or post individually as happy mail. Really, who doesn’t smile when they receive a handmade card in the mailbox?

Foiling Tip: more heating time and pressure do not create a better transfer. I have had my best success by accurately using the built-in timer and light pressure when passing though the Platinum 6 Die Cutting & Embossing Machine. Overfoiling is easily erased away, but it’s even easier to prevent it!

Thank you for stopping by and have a spectacularly craft-tastic day!
