Hello crafty friends. Today I’m sharing 2 foiled cards that I made using the April 2021 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Curved Glimmer Border & Sentiments. I am also using the April 2021 Clear Stamp of the Month (CSOM) called Around the Bend.
The kit comes with 6 foiling plates, 2 dies, and silver foil.
For my first card, I foiled the floral image and the “thank you” sentiment on blue cardstock with aura foil using my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system. Then I used some iridescent watercolors to color the images.
Next, I used the scalloped border die to diecut the curved bottom edge. I trimmed the panel down to fit on an A2 sized card. I lined the scalloped boded die on to an A2 white card base, and die cut to top flap of the card base. I adhered the blue panel on top with thin foam tape.
To add some more interest and to add something to all the negative space, I drew a border around the top and sides of the blue panel with a white gel pen. Next, I diecut a few flowers and leaves from the April 2021 Large Die of the Month kit, and adhered them around the sentiment. I also added sequins and Nuvo glitter drops to finish off my card.
For my next card, I used the Clear Stamp of the Month set. I used the vine/branch stamp with green ink, and stamped it on a white card panel. I then used one of the floral cluster images and yellow ink for fill in the flowers. To add a bit of detail to the flowers, I added some dots with a white gel pen. I also added some faint clouds to the white panel for interest using distress oxide ink and a cloud stencil.
To add some foiling to the card, I added the scalloped pierced border under the flowers with aura foil. Then I used the scalloped border die to diecut it under the foiling. I also foiled the “happy birthday” sentiment onto yellow cardstock to match the flowers with aura foil. I used the plain curved border die to diecut the sentiment. I trimmed one side like a fishtail banner.
I trimmed the stamped and foiled panel. Then I adhered the sentiment banner on top with foam tape, and trimmed off the excess off the right side. I adhered the entire panel to a blue A2 sized card base with more foam tape.
To finish off the card, I added some little white flowers and leaves (from the LDOM kit). I added some Nuvo drops to the center of the flowers.
I love the way my cards turned out, and I hope you do too. Don’t forget to head over to the Spellbinders site to check out this month’s Glimmer of the Month kit, and Clear Stamp of the Month, along with many other card making basics!
