Distress Oxide ink Blended Hot Foil Birthday Cards | Spell Binders Glimmer Hot foil Machine

Hello everyone, thank you so much for stopping by to check out my first cards playing with my Spell Binders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine, Let's jump right in.

To start as always I cut down my cardstock to see what I am working with I trimmed down two pieces of Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy cardstock and blended on three colours of Distress Oxide Ink in Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot, creating a halo of colour in the centre.

I then used my Glimmer Hot Foil Machine and the two plates that come with it to create the frame and the Happy Birthday sentiment with the Silver foil that comes with the Machine and a Pewter foil that I bought separately. I really tried to use what came with the Glimmer Machine to show that you can make wonderful cards without purchasing a lot of other items. To see how I used the Glimmer hot foil machine please watch the video below. I am by no means an expert, this was my first time using the machine but I LOVE who these turned out and wanted to share them with you but I struggle to explain how the machine works so I think the video would be a better way to see how I made it.

Once all the foiling was done I adhered the panels to my A2 sized card base leaving a 1/4 inch white border to help the colours pop and added a bunch of crystals to help accent the foiled frame. I hope you will check out the video down below as it will be a lot more detailed and show better how stunning the cards turned out, the pictures just don's do them justice. I also have a full supplies list below the video if you would like to know exactly what I used to make these cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again soon!!
