Gold Foil Fantasticness....

 Have I told you how much I love hot foiling?  I do.  Its the easiest detail that adds so much to a card front!  The new July Glimmer Hot Foil Kit is amazing and these plates are so perfect to add to your stash.  Just a good basic detail for slimline cards....and for any other size really.


I taped down 2 of frames on a piece of cardstock and then added the gold foil.  After running it through my Glimmer System it revealed the most gorgeous shine!  I added in the big blooms from The Greetery and then added the front panel to a mini slim line card base.  So easy!

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!
