Spellbinders Glimmer Essentials collection!

 I was kindly treated to a new hot foil plate set from the Glimmer Essentials line.  Here's a card I made with it, also using the new Mini Rainbow Stripe glimmer foil that was in my package.  The bright happy colors of this foil are perfect for a birthday card!

supplies: white  and a green foiled cardstock, Spellbinders Essential Duo Lines Ovals Hot Foil PlatesMini Rainbow Stripe glimmer foil,  Glimmer Hot Foil machine, flowers and leaves dies from an April 2019 Small Die of the Month set

I chose a medium oval from this glimmer hot foil set and foiled it with the stripes going horizontally over white cardstock.  The Happy Birthday plate, included with my machine when I bought it last year, was foiled with the stripes going vertically.  Next I applied more of the foil to a sticky-backed cardstock, then cut out my flowers and layered them, separating the layers with adhesive foam.  

I've always been drawn to ovals, but don't have many, so I'm thrilled to have this now going forward!  The set has 8 different sizes, which can be used alone or combined any way you'd like!

I have 1 more little bonus card today to better show you the new Mini Rainbow Stripe glimmer foil.  

supplies: white and aqua shimmer cardstock, Spellbinder's Floral Embossing Folder, Scattered Hearts Glimmer Plate, Mini Rainbow Stripe Glimmer foil, Hemstitch Rectangle die, and a (retired) sentiment from Tammy Tutterow's Sentiments 2 cling stamps and matching dies, markers to color letters

Glimmer is a perfect description for the way these foils work - always a lovely soft effect!  

Thanks for stopping by today!
