CARD DETAILS

I love to use colored cardstock to make an impact on my cards, and so for today’s projects I picked a few colors from Fun Stampers Journey (any cardstock in similar colors will do for this). The colors are really nice and this paper also foils beautifully (if you plan to foil over your cardstock this is something you’ll need to test beforehand, I’ve found that not all papers foil equally well, so test before you make the card).

To make the color blocked panels I cut my paper to 1” wide by 4 1/4” tall and used washi tape to secure pieces together from the back. Next, I used my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System and Platinum Die Cutting Machine to foil a gorgeous heart from the Hearts & Love Glimmer Plates Set using Gold Foil (I just noticed I’m almost out of my gold foil! It’s not surprise, as it is my favorite color to use).

If you are new to the Glimmer Hot Foil system I encourage you to check out my previous videos explaining how the system works in detail. Here are a few posts & videos from my blog:

Once the heart was foiled I trimmed the panel down slightly and foam mounted onto a a diagonal stripe embossed panel which in turn was adhered onto an A2 white top folding card base.

Next, I added a simple “Love You” sentiment, I gold heat embossed it on a piece of white cardstock, cut into a strip and foam mounted onto my card overlapping the heart slightly. Lastly, I’ve embellished this card using clear jewels from my stash.

In the same manner I created a few tags to go along with the card. I was picturing these as gift tags one could add to a gift on Valentine’s day.

For my first tag I die cut the shape out using Swirl Tags die set from Becca Feeken and I gold heat embossed the word February from the Planner Dates & Month stamp set. Be sure to watch my video to see the rest of the projects I made.
