Glorious Glimmer Inspiration | Clean & Simple Cards with Brenda
Hello everyone!! This is Brenda, from MyPaperCut Creations. I am absolutely thrilled to be guest posting for Spellbinders today!! I am sharing three cards that feature the beautiful Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Plates designed by Becca Feeken.
I had never used a foiling system before I received the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foiling System & I feel that it has taken my card making to another level!
My first project combines two of the Glorious Glimmer Plates by Becca Feeken to create this sympathy card.
I feel that with sympathy cards, sometimes simpler is better. The foiling adds a lot of class to a simple card.
I started by hot foiling the sentiment from Elegant Occasion Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Plates and the leaves from the Foil Flowers Glorious Glimmer Plates with Matte Gold Foil onto dark blue cardstock. I die-cut the sentiment (which is an incredibly beautiful font) with the coordinating die (which is included) and fussy cut the leaves. I drew some lines around a dark blue cardstock panel with a gold gel pen and a T-square ruler. The sentiment and leaves were popped up in the center of the panel with foam adhesive. Lastly, clusters of crystal drops finish off the card.

You’re Amazing Card
My second card uses the Foil Flowers Glorious Glimmer Plates again, but his time I paired it with the Elegant Affirmation Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Plates.
I foiled the sentiment using the Elegant Affirmation Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Plates and the flowers from the Foil Flowers Glorious Glimmer Plates with Pink Foil and cut them with the included dies. I foiled the leaves from the Foiled Flowers Glorious Glimmer Plates with Silver Foil and fussy cut those. I arranged all of my elements and picked them up all at once using Press ’N Seal. This allowed me to add liquid adhesive between the elements and foam adhesive to the back of them, all at one time. (The Press ‘N Seal did add a slight texture to the foil, but I liked it…just be aware.)
The die-cuts were placed onto a panel of pink cardstock. A few sequins finished off the card nicely.

Happy Anniversary Card
My final card uses the Elegant Occasion Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Plates with the Elegant Rectangle Glorious Glimmer Plates. I love the look of the silver foil on white.
For this one, I silver foiled the largest of the Elegant Rectangle Glorious Glimmer Plates onto a panel of white cardstock. The second largest element was foiled onto a separate white cardstock panel and fussy cut. I tied some white organza ribbon into a bow around the smaller one and adhered it with foam adhesive onto the background panel. Happy Anniversary, from the Elegant Occasion Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Plates, was foiled onto white cardstock and die-cut with the included die. It was also popped up with some foam adhesive.
A silver heart embellishment and some clear confetti were the perfect finishing touches!
