Hey card making friends and welcome back. Today I have 4 New Glimmer Foiled Cards for you created with a new glimmer die from Spellbinders. The Autumn Leaf Border Plate is part of the NEW Halloween & Fall Collection over at Spellbinders and it’s a beauty.
It glimmer foils this beautiful long fabulous strip of leaves. Above, I used the Copper Glimmer foil over some watercolor I created with Gansai Tambi paints. I added some splatter and a sentiment from the For You Stylish Script that came out a few months back.
TIP – do the water coloring first and let it dry before you foil. Doing it afterwards, the watercolor sits on top of the foil and dulls it out.
For the second card, I did the same watercolor, this time down the size of the card and then glimmer foiled the border, again in Copper.
I also did the background splatter before the foiling and at the end, embellished the cards with a few pink jewels from the Pinkfresh Essential Jewels.
This foiled image is fabulous on it’s own on a piece of Teal card as well. Again foiled in copper, although the morning light when I took these photos is turning it a bit gold.
Finally, you can also step it up just a bit by using iridescent paints to color in the leaves. I used Gansai Tambi White, copper and gold on this card. Both teal cards are embellished with copper sequins.
You do need the Glimmer Foil Machine to use these plates.
- All the card fronts are 4 x 5-1/4. The first two are from Canson 140# Watercolor paper, the second two, Simon Says Stamp Teal card stock.
- All card bases are Neenah Solar White 110# 4-1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5-1/2
