Merry Christmas...early! :)

I have been playing with the Celebrate the Season release from Spellbinders ALL weekend.  I went to a little gathering of friends at a local craft house and I brought lots of paper and these dies specifically to make all the Christmas cards!  This one using the Stylish Merry Christmas Dies is one of my faves!  



I die cut the Merry Christmas layers all in white and then stacked them up with foam tape so you could see the dimension.  Next, I added in florals from Holiday Blooms Etched Die Set.  So many fun details in this set to add in to the blooms and tuck them around the Merry Christmas focal point.  Last, I hot foiled the little sentiment strip to add in across the bottom.  Love the foiled look!  Speaking of.....

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 so much for stopping in today!  Hope you have a great day!
