Life is a Beautiful Ride {Spellbinders}...

Hey friends!  Hope you are all doing well.  I wanted to stop in with a quick card using a gorgeous sentiment from Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System....


This card was super simple to create.  I grabbed some watercolor paper simply for the texture.  I used Gold Foil with the Life is a Beautiful Ride glimmer plate on the front panel.  


I stamped these gorgeous blooms from Altenew's Story of Us and added those to the card front with foam tape.  I attached that front panel to a card base with fun foam to finish off the card.


You can see that beautiful gold foil shine in this last photo.....


Not sure what Hot Foiling is?  Here it is a nut shell....  Spellbinders has a platform called Glimmer Hot Foil System.  This platform heats up metal plates called Glimmer Plates.  These glimmer plates come in ALL different types....sentiments, florals, backgrounds, graphic details etc....and add the most gorgeous foiling detail to your cards.  And the foils?  There are LOTS of different colors to chose from!

Here are some links to help point you in the right direction....

The Glimmer Hot Foil System works great with a Platinum 6 Die Cut machine from Spellbinders but also works with other die cut machines. You can click HERE to see a compatibility chart.  

So once the platform and your glimmer plate heat up, you add in the foil and the cardstock and run in thorough your die cut machine.  Once you pull off the foil negative, the magic happens!  That foil that is set on your cardstock is just gorgeous!  

Such a fun technique with SO many possibilities.  

I am so glad you came by today.  Hope you have a great day!
