I absolutely LOVE glimmer foiling so when Simon sent me this Sketched Peony Blossom to work with I was overjoyed. As you can see, I didn’t stop at just one flower, I had to foil 4 of them. This was a super fast and easy way to create a HUGE amount of bling on basically a clean and simple card.
How to create the Glimmer Peony Card:
Using Polished Brass Glimmer hot Foil, and the foiling plate, foil the image 4 times onto Hero Arts Mist card stock.
Use the coordinating die to cut out the images.
Next, Die cut the sentiment from matte gold cardstock and the shadow from the Mist cardstock and glue them together before adhering them to the card front with foam squares.
Position the flowers around the sentiment also attaching them with foam squares.
Finally, flip the card over and trim the overhang off from the back.
Embellish with Stay Gold Sequins.
Don’t throw out the cut offs:
Use white glue to attach the cut offs to the inside of the card. That way you are not wasting any of that glimmer goodness.
