CARD DETAILS

Glimmer Hot Foil system is basically an add on to your die cutting machine that lets you add foiled effects to your handmade projects with the help of metal – etched dies or hot foil plates. This is not like MINC machine or a Laminator, this is a completely different technology.

I started to work on my card by using coordinating dies to hot foil the die outline. I am not using dies to die-cut my images out, instead I’m using them to foil with. Imagine foiling with all of the coordinating dies or regular dies you have in your stash? There’s a world of options here!

Next, I removed the overfilling with the help of sanding eraser. Overfilling happens when you apply too much pressure and this is why with the etched dies it’s important to test how many shims you need to add to get the best possible foil transfer. Anytime I have overfilling happening I just use my sanding eraser to erase that extra foil – and it works like a charm!

Next, I used my coordinating stamps and stamped a sentiment inside the foiled message. This is like a whole new way to make cards – usually we use coordinating dies after we stamp, but here I’m doing the opposite – using stamps as a last step.

I trimmed my panel down slightly and foam mounted onto an A2 white side folding card base. I also stamped, colored and cut out 3 holly leave clusters from Merry & Bright stamp set and I’ve also added a bunch of jewels from Pretty Pink Posh to dress this card up.

Have fun stamping!

    1. How does the Spellbinders foil press compare to Crafters Companion foil press?

    1. Yana, I was at Hobby Lobby today, & showing Santa these machines…… 😉 I am SO HAPPY to find out you can use ANY DIE in them! I wasn’t sure. You’ve made me HAPPY with your post today! 😀
