Hey, friends! I am sharing some more Glimmer plates from Spellbinder’s in today’s post! I’ve already used these plates several times this season, but they are fabulous! Today’s cards show you just some more ways that you can use them in your own crafting.
For my first card, I wanted to create a Christmas night sky to glimmer the names of the reindeer onto. I think a little silhouette of santa’s sleigh in front of the moon would have been cute, but since I didn’t have a stamp for that, I used this reindeer die in black paper as a silhouette on the front of my card.
This reindeer die is sadly no longer available, as it was part of Spellbinder’s Christmas Kit last year. If you want to see THIS YEAR’S KIT, HEAD TO THE SPELLBINDER’S SHOP!
Once I had my ink blended background finished (I show how I did this in my video), I glimmered the sentiment using the Glimmer Plate from Spellbinders and some foil called Prism. This foil is a silvery foil, but it has a rainbow shine to it. I thought it would be perfectly magical for this card!
My next card took a little more time to put together! I die cut many pieces of cardstock, and then added them back into my background like a puzzle, creating a die cut inlay background.
I used the Glimmered Ornament set to die cut pieces out of the black cardstock. Then, I cut those same pieces out of colored cardstock and pieced them back into the background. This created a die cut scene, but all the same, level height so that I could glimmer over it.
I used my gold foil, and the Merry Christmas Glimmer plate and ran it through my hot foil system to foil the design right over my inlay background. It worked surprisingly well! I got a few areas where it over-foiled a bit, but those are easily erased with a sand eraser.
I hope you enjoyed today’s cards! These holiday glimmer plates just add so much more to your Christmas cards.
Until next time,
