Spellbinders Glimmer of the Month Club from February

Hi All! I finally had a chance to play with Februarys Glimmer of the Month kit from February. I try and get to each kit before the next one shows up! ( I subscribe to the Glimmer and their Small Die of the Month) They are so fun, versatile and priced pretty darn nice! For me, they give me a chance to create some cards that I am not coloring. Todays card turned out so elegant. I played around a lot with this hot foil plate before I came up with the card I made. Initially I wanted to color all the flowers, I even got it to foil on my Hammermill beautifully. (Yay! saving that trick for the future) But I was not happy with those results so I tried again and now, on with the Show & Tell…

Prism foil on a glimmering paper!

The sentiment was foiled in Lavender Petal and picks up the Ink Drop paper nicely.

Other than the hot foil itself (which I consider an embellishment!) the only other embellie is the Honey Bee Crystal Clear Mix gems.
