Christmas Cards POP with foil!!

The Spellbinders Glimmer Kit of the Month is gorgeous!!!  These hot plates make the m most beautiful foiled Christmas Card.  I love that you can keep it quick and easy with just the foil accents, or you can add in color....


I hot foiled this gorgeous pattern on white cardstock and then used the coordinating dies to cut out the curves.  Love that they are included!  Next, I used gold foil and added the sentiment to the bottom green panel.  I found the perfect red striped cardstock and added that to the top.  To finish off the card, I used foam tape to pop up that beautiful foiled panel.  I love foiling!!  Such a gorgeous touch!

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.  

First you heat up the platform and your glimmer plate on the Glimmer System Platform.  Then you add in the foil and the cardstock and run it thorough your die cut machine.  Once you pull off the foil negative, the magic happens!  That foil that is set on your cardstock and the results are just gorgeous!  


Thanks for coming by today!  Hope you have a great day!
