I created a quick process video on how to use the Glimmer Foil machine, and I show you what I created with the April GOTM kit.
Here is the plates that you will receive along with a roll of Matte Silver Foil:
For my first card, I used all the plates (letters) to create a background image on pink cardstock, along with the rose gold foil. Since I had so many plates on the platform at one time, the foiling didn’t come out perfectly, but I love how distressed it looks!
I die cut the Flutter Wing Butterfly die out of pink cardstock. (I die cut the body 3 times and glued them on top of each other to create a dimensional look.) I also heat foiled the “Hello Friend” from the Everyday Sentiments II with the rose gold foil and black cardstock.
I cut a piece of Heidi Swapp “Paint the Town” pattern paper, and adhered it onto a white card base. Then I added the foiled background piece with foam tape. I adhered the butterfly with a thin sliver of foam tape under the body, and then I added the sentiment with foam tape as well.
For the second card, I decided to make a shaker element.
First, on a piece of white cardstock, I ink blended 3 Distress Oxide inks together. I used Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, and Spun Sugar. I sprinkled the ink-blended background with water, and dabbed it up with a paper towel to create a bleached effect. I spelled out the word “love,” but left out the space for the O, and used the Prism hot foil. I then die cut a small heart where the O should be. I created a shaker element using clear acetate, foam tape, and tiny heart sequins. I adhered the entire panel only a white card base with foam tape. I added the “It’s Your Day” sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments II, along with the Prism hot foil and black cardstock.
I have to admit that I forgot to use the Matte Silver foil on my cards, as I was just too excited to play with the glimmer foil system. However, I do use a piece of it in the video when I was demonstrating how to use the Glimmer machine.
I really hope you like my cards, and you found my video helpful.
