Spellbinders | Foiled Basics Collection – Project Kit. Video

Hello everyone, happy Monday! I’m very so excited to introduce you to my very first collection with Spellbinders – Foiled Basics. Foiled Basics is a small collection that includes everything you need to get started to create elegant foiled cards – a background/border plate, a set of timeless sentiment, and of course, pretty greenery and florals.

Here’s a little bit about this collection:

I adore everything Glimmer. Foiling adds such gorgeous, exquisite effects to handmade cards, it is impossible to resist.

When designing my Glimmer Basics collection I wanted to create a set of plates to be used together that would allow us, cardmakers, to easily and quickly build beautiful, one of a kind, cards.

The Foliage Border set is designed to take center stage on your handmade card be it an A2 project or bigger.  The foliage piece can be foiled once, twice or three times to create an accent or a full floral frame around a delicately foiled circle. Both can also be used separately – foil the foliage in the corners of your panel creating a rectangular or square frame; foil the circle on its own and embellish it with individual foiled branches and leaves from the Organic Foliage set. The latter can also be used to add images in different color foil to the main Foliage Border. This set can be used alone, or combined with a simple Polka Dot Strip for a simplistic, yet classy card. The strip, if foiled twice, easily makes a background for an A2 card and because the Foliage Border comes with coordinating die it can be effortlessly layered over it.

And finally, Yana’s Sentiments is probably my favorite set in this collection. If features 5 sentiments that are most used in cardmaking. Each comes with a coordinating die allowing you to cut the message out and pop it over a foiled polka dot background, organic foliage or even house within a circle from the Foliage Border set.

This collection is already available at select retailers. If you prefer shopping at the Spellbinders’ store – you can show the project kit now and shop the collection on February 10th.
