2 foiled birthday cards, featuring Spellbinders

Hello friends!  Today, I’m sharing 2 birthday cards that I created using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine, and a few hot foil glimmer foil plates.  I’m using the Everyday Sentiments II and the Happiest Birthday glimmer hot foil plates.  I’m also using 2 foil colors: Prism and Polished Brass.

I ended up creating 2 very different cards, but I love the way they both turned out!

For my first card, I used the Everyday Sentiments II and the Prism foil.  I foiled 5 of the 8 sentiments (I used 2 of the sentiments twice) onto colored cardstock in a rainbow order.  Once all the foiling was done, I die cut them using the included die.

I adhered them to white cardstock with foam tape, and then trimmed off the edges.  Next, I added foam tape to the back of the white cardstock, and adhered the panel to a yellow card base that I made to A2 sized.

I have been loving rainbows lately, and I am absolutely thrilled with how this card turned out!

For my second card, I used the Happiest Birthday glimmer hot foil plate and the Polished Brass foil.

I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper using a faux dip dye technique, which I learned from Kristina Werner (here is her blog post).  Once the paint was fully dry (I heat set it, and I let it air dry for quite a while), I foiled it with the glimmer hot plate.  I was a little bit worried about the texture of the watercolor paper, so I made sure to roll it through my Platinum die cutting machine a few extra times.  It came out perfectly!

I attached it to a white card base with foam tape, and I love the way it turned out!  I love that the sentiment of this foil plate is so large that you really don’t need anything else!
