Spellbinders | Hot Foil Friendship Cards. Video

Hello-hello and happy 2019! I’m happy to dive into the new year with lots of ideas, new videos, cards and tons of inspiration! I’m glad you are with me and very happy to have you as my blog subscribers (or a visitor if you are just passing by). Today I have hot foil friendship cards to share using new Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Club.

Several years ago when I was starting my card making hobby I was fascinated with heat embossing. I could sit and watch the embossing powder melt and create beautiful results on paper. I didn’t think there was anything better out there. These days I am however  just as fascinated with hot foiling – that moment when you peel the foil sheet away and the gorgeous result is revealed on your handmade card is just so special.

CARD DETAILS

I have a simple year-round card idea to share featuring hot foil with the help of Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine and Glimmer Hot Foil Club. Yes, there’s a new Club from Spellbinders and this one features none other but hot foil plates and hot foil. This month it’s all about the hearts!

If this is a first time ever you are hearing about hot foiling and you haven’t got a clue what it is, please check out my previous posts that feature & explains this process in detail: Holiday Foiled Cards, Holiday Foiled & Heat Embossed Cards, Foiling with Coordinating Dies, Foiling with Etched Dies.

I’m using Gold foil for my projects today and I’m going for gold, white and deep blue color combo. Deep blue is one of my favorite colors and it combines oh so well with gold.

The Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Club for January 2019 comes with a roll of red foil, plus two hot foil plate designs. I’m using gold foil from my stash for these cards, but I also have other projects made with red foil from the kit and also Rose Gold foil that comes included with the Glimmer Hot Foil Machine. See those below:

If you are a Large Die of the Month Club member from Spellbinders you’ll be happy to know that the heart die from the Large Die of the Month for January 2019 coordinates with the heart shape of the Glimmer Hot Foil Club and cuts the smaller heart shape out.

I used mine to die-cut foiled hearts on both white and blue panels. Next I swapped the pieces – blue heart with a white negative panel and white heart with a blue negative panel.

I am using specific products for these cards, but if you are not a Spellbinders Club member or if you don’t have a Glimmer Hot foil machine you can still take this idea and create similar cards. You can replace gold foiling with gold embossing and stamps or you can die-cut a similar heart design out of gold and blue paper and do some inlay die cutting.

To create sentiments for my cards I used Simon Says Stamp Everything Together stamp set. I stamped sentiment in Hero Arts Navy ink and cut the rectangle out using scissors. Next I die-cut a postmark shape using another die from Spellbinders and gold glitter paper and adhered my stamped sentiment onto it to create one piece.

I adhered the negative panels onto A2 white side folding card bases (I trimmed both to 4 x 5 1/4″) and foam mounted the die cut heart shapes on top for a bit of dimension. I decided not to add any other embellishments and kept it fairly simply.

Even though this card design features hearts it’s not necessarily a Valentine’s day card and can be gives to a friend at any time of year.
