Yana’s Christmas Foiled Basics with Bibi Cameron

Hi from Scotland, this is Bibi Cameron here and I’m happy to be able to share five easy and simple ideas using glimmer plates from the new Christmas Foiled Basics collection designed by Yana Smakula for Spellbinders.

This is a collection of 6 glimmer plates:

To use any of these glimmers sets you will need the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System and hot foil.

For all the projects below I used foiled sentiments made using “Yana’s Christmas Sentiments“, this set included 22 plates and 5 coordinating dies.

I started by making very simple and basic cards using “Glimmer Winter Village“.

I totally love these plates, they are so easy to use and you can use them on different projects. You can combine these beautiful foiled images with any of the “Yana’s Christmas Sentiments” to make elegant foiled Christmas cards.

You can also use any of the plates in this collection to create hot foiled tags. Below you will see tags made with “Glimmer Winter Village” and “Glimmer Gift Border“.

I couldn’t resist and I also applied hot foil to this small gift box.

Bonus Projects

I also wanted to share a couple of ideas featuring  “Christmas Foliage Background” and “Christmas Organic Foliage“.

Christmas Organic Foliage

  • For this card, I simply foiled white and dark green cardstock and die cut the foiled pieces using coordinating dies included with the glimmer plates.
  • Then, I just made a super simple arrangement over patterned paper and I added mirror cardstock accents and fashion gold embellishments.
  • I glued this over a white panel and then I glue the topper on a red card base.

Christmas Foliage Background

Christmas Foliage Background will allow you to easily foil a whole panel of a card, a box, or a tag. I made 2 super simple cards to share extra ideas with you.

Shaker Card

I also wanted to foil coloured cardstock using Christmas Foliage Background and also add a shaker as a focal point.

  • For this card, I used polish brass hot foil on a dark green piece of cardstock.
  • I die cut a circle on the center of the panel and I added a shaker.
  • Behind the shaker, I added a piece of cardstock that I previously foiled using “Glimmer Winter Village” so that you can see the little houses in the background.
  • I added a couple of leaves made using “Christmas Organic Foliage“.

That’s all for today. I hope you like these ideas. Happy Crafting
