Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far. Today I’m sharing a Best Wishes card, using the Spellbinders May 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM). I also used the flower and leaves dies from the May 2019 Large Die of the Month (LDOM).
On a piece of white cardstock, I used my Glimmer Hot Foil System to hot foil the filigree frame with the Polished Brass foil, which both came in the GOM. Next, I used Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Abandoned Coral with an old makeup brush to ink blend right on top of the hot foil. I hadn’t tried foiling first, then ink blending before, so this was a bit of an experiment. After all the ink blending, I took a paper towel to buff off the residual ink on the foiling. I will admit that the ink blending and the buffing did dull down the foiling a little bit, so I will stick to ink blending then foiling next time. Using the oval die that came with the filigree frame, I die cut an oval from the center of the cardstock. I then trimmed it down to slightly less than A2 sized.
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I used the “Best Wishes” sentiment that came with the Glimmer Hot Foil machine, and the same foil that I used for the frame. I used foam tape on the back of the filigree frame panel, and adhered it the the Best Wishes panel. Next, I adhered the entire thing to an A2 sized white card base.
I love how elegant and feminine my card turned out. I hope you do too! Don’t forget to check out all of the Spellbinders Clubs for kits filled with awesome value. Thanks for stopping by.
