Hello crafty friends. Today I’m sharing 2 foiled floral cards that I made using the December 2020 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Glimmer Mix & Match.
This month’s kit includes 6 foil plates, and 1 cutting plate. The GOM also comes with a roll of silver foil. There are 2 plates with sentiments arches that say “happy birthday” and “a big thank you.” You can combine a sentiment arch with one of the foliage arches to create a beautiful oval shape. You could fill the middle with the “from me to you” sentiment, or florals, or a cute critter even. I chose to fill my cards with diecut floral elements using dies from a past Large Die of the Month kit, called Geometrical Floral Frames.
I can never have enough birthday cards, so I decided to make both of my cards birthday cards.
For my first card, I chose the arch with the leaves.
I chose a piece of green cardstock, and added just a little bit of Distress Oxide ink blending for a slightly subtle ombre colored cardstock. Next, I used my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system to foil the happy birthday arch and the leaves arch with silver foil. I taped everything together before foiling so that I could get precise placement. After foiling, I used one of my Nestabilities A2 Matting Basics dies to diecut the green cardstock panel. Next, I adhered some of the floral pieces that I diecut to the center. For added interest, I drew on some details to the leaves with a pen, and added white splatter. I mounted the panel to an A2 side folding card base with foam tape. To finish off the card, I added some Nuvo glitter drops.
For my second card, I chose the floral arch with the flowers.
I made this card the exact same way I made the first card, but this time, I used the floral arch and Polished Brass foil.
I really love how these cards turned out, and I hope you got some inspiration. Head to the Spellbinders site to check out this month’s Glimmer of the Month kit, along with many other card making basics!
