Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a Holiday ornament card that I created with the December 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Perfect Fit Hexagon Strips.
This month’s kit comes with 4 glimmer plates and 4 pieces of coordinating dies. It also comes with one roll of Aura foil. The glimmer plates that end with a full hexagon are the A plates, and coordinate with the A dies. The plates that end with a half of a hexagon are the B plates, and coordinate with the B dies. There are tiny letters at one end of the dies to let you know which are As and Bs.
I started by choosing red, green, and blue cardstock, then cutting them into strips. I hot foiled the hexagon designs using my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system. Once I had at least 2 good foiled pieces for each color, I used the coordinating dies and my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine to diecut them.
I glued the hexagon strips to a piece of scrap cardstock. On a separate piece of white cardstock that I trimmed to slightly less than A2 sized, I diecut a big circle using a die from the Nestabilites standard circle die set. I adhered the diecut white panel onto of the hexagon strip background to create dimension and interest with foam tape. Next, I tied a bow onto the card with red and white twine, and all of the sudden my diecut circle is now an ornament. I also added a Merry Christmas sentient, which is from the Nov 2019 GOM called Merry Christmas sentiments. I cut it into a small strip and adhered it with foam tape. To finish off my card, I added some clear glitter Nuvo crystal drops.
I hope that you like my card as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to check out all the goodies on the Spellbinders website.
