Spellbinders Glimmer Plates Inspiration | Clean & Simple Foiled Cards with Kaja
Hi there, It’s Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and I am honored to be guest designing for Spellbinders! Today I will show you some cards I made using the Glimmer Hot Foil system and some glimmer plates.
I made four cards and they all feature some great sayings that I foiled on a card using the Glimmer hot foil system.
First two cards are practically the same, the only thing different is the color of the foil. On the first one I used Teal and on the other one I used Rose gold foil that comes with the Glimmer machine.
I used a gray patterned paper that I cut down to a size of my card base. Then, I foiled the saying ‘Best day ever!’ on a piece of white card stock.
I die cut the sentiment using the square die that gives a beautiful scalloped edge. I decided to cut it a bit off, on the right-hand side, so the right scallop isn’t seen.
The last thing I added were some sequins in the coordinating color.
I just love how the foil gives a beautiful effect when the light catches it in the right way.
Take a look at the next card I made:
For this card I decided to foil the sentiment ‘Make today count’ with two different foils, even though it’s actually one plate. I used Silver and Teal foil for this.
Since the words are spaced enough, I achieved the two-color effect by cutting the foil in the right size and only putting it on the parts of the saying, I wanted to have in that color. I did the foiling in one go, since I didn’t want my plate to move.
Once the sentiment was foiled, I die-cut it using the same square die as in the first two cards.
I made the background using a Copic marker that is the most similar to the teal foil I used.
The last card for today is this one:
For this card I decided to go with a simple look. I foiled the ‘Be awesome today’ sentiment with a rose gold foil on a piece of white card stock.
I used a gray card stock for the background on which I made some white splatters. Once the paint was dry, I die cut it with a scalloped rectangle.
I popped up the sentiment with some foam tape to give it some dimension. To finish the card off I added some rose gold sequins.
