Hello friends! Today I’m sharing 2 cards that I created with the October 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Sunset Harvest.
This month’s GOM comes with 6 plates and 5 coordinating dies. You also get a copper foil roll. The “many thanks” sentiment is perfect for this time of year.
I used my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system, the glimmer plates and the copper and polished brass foils for my cards. I used my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine and the coordinating dies as well.
For my first card, I decided to use the leaf plates and coordinating dies to make a wreath. I chose a very fall color palette, and foiled and die cut the leaves. I chose a light pink cardstock for the background. I foiled the sentiment in the middle, and then trimmed down the cardstock to about 4 x 5 1/4 inches. I glued the background panel on a white card base with fun foam. Then I adhered the leaves in a wreath, using both liquid glue and foam tape. To finish off my card, I splattered some gold color shine from Heidi Swapp, added some liquid pearls and glitter novo drops.
For the next card, I wanted to use all the hot plates included in the set. First, I foiled the largest image on a sheet of maroon cardstock. Then I foiled the other images and used the coordinating dies to die cut them. For the sentiment, I foiled it on a larger piece of cardstock, and decided to cut it out in a banner shape. I adhered everything to the card with liquid glue and foam squares. To finish off the card, I used a white gel pen and added a border around the card base. I also used the gold color shine, liquid pearls and novo glitter drops.
I really love the way these cards turned out. The hot plates and foil is perfect for fall. I hope you were inspired by my card, and I hope you check out the club kits on the Spellbinders website.
