Happy Birthday {Spellbinders}...

Happy middle of June!  How are we racing through the summer like this?  It is going by so fast!  I hope you are feeling the world returning to a slightly new normal.  I am thankful to feel that here!  We have needed normalcy for so long!  

I have a new card today using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month.  This month's plate are SO fun and so nice to have in your stash for birthday cards.   


For this card, I used a stencil and ink blending on a card base.  I hot foiled the plates using gold foil and then die cut the happy birthday with the coordinating die.  I added in the strip sentiment which also comes in the kit.  To top it off, I added a few Fashion Gold pearls in!  Love the gold and yellow combo!

Are you new to hot foiling?

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!  


Thanks so much for coming by today!
