Spellbinders | February 2023 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit

This month's Glimmer Hot Foil Kit - Tulip Border is so pretty and perfect for spring! I can't remember the last time I used my Copic markers but I'm glad that this kit allowed me to do some quick colouring. I made two cards using the same colours but in very different ways.

This first card features the Glimmer Hot Foil Kit - Tulip Border in the most traditional sense. I heat foiled the tulips using Matte Gold Hot Foil on Neenah heavyweight cardstock. Then I used Copic markers (all colours are listed below) to quickly colour them.

After cutting both the blue and tulip panel with the third-largest die from the Precision Layering A2 Etched Dies, I heat foiled the sentiment using Matte Gold Hot Foil. Then I used this month's 3D Embossing Folder - Spring Burst to partially emboss the panel.

I find the way the blue panel was partially embossed, it looks a bit like rain clouds but that just adds to the spring showers ideology. I love the added texture which compliments the tulips. To finish, I attached both panels to a green card base.

My second card uses the same colours but with colour blocking. It's true, I will avoid colouring whenever possible so this is my kind of card! I basically cut strips of cardstock and taped them together before heat foiling the tulips with Matte Gold Hot Foil.

Similar to the first card, I used the Precision Layering A2 Etched Dies to cut the white linen and tulip panels. After heat foiling the other sentiment from this set on the white linen panel, I glued them to a blue card base.

I never get tired of heat foiling and I love looking at the shine! Using a different hot foil colour would provide a completely different look to these beautiful tulips and I can't wait to experiment more with this month's beautiful Tulip Border.
