Creating with Spellbinders Glimmer Edge Butterflies

Spellbinders have recently launched a Spring Into Glimmer collection and I got to play with the Glimmer Edge butterflies which are beautiful! If you’re not into whimsy as much, I’m showing you how to pair it with simple hot foiling for a modern take to create this stunning birthday card. I’ve paired it with some of the beautiful release from Yana Smakula’s latest collection with Spellbinders for an effortlessly beautiful birthday card. So let’s get started!

This post was produced as part of design team work with the Spellbinders Club Influencer group where I'm given supplies to use. The information provided is based on my own personal experience - I am not an expert.

Hot foil with your Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil systems the Diagonal Glimmer Stripe plate in Gold Hot Foil onto white card. Next, foil the Glimmer Edge Butterflies set in Moondust Hot foil and use the coordinating die to cut these out.

To create the sentiment, die-cut the birthday sentiment from the Spellbinders Yana’s Layered Script Sentiments in black card that has been layered with double-sided adhesive sheets on the back. The double-sided adhesive sheets makes adhering this thin script die-cut easy as pie!

For the remaining sentiment, hot foil in Gold Hot Foil the ‘Happy’ from the Splatter Sentiments Glimmer set. Die-cut the body of the butterfly and some of the leaves from the Glimmer Edge Butterflies set from the black card. 

In addition, die-cut some of the flowers out of white card, and leftover the foiled card in Moondust Hot foil. Adhere all the flowers and butterflies to the card panel around the sentiment. Finish off with a few iridescent flat sequin discs to embellish the card.

Teal, gold and a hint of black for elegance!

For this card, hot foil in Gold Hot Foil using the Glimmer Hot Foil System, the Twinkling lights glimmer plate twice on a piece of Ocen Mist cardstock. Next, hot foil the Magnolia Bouquet Glimmer set in Moondust Hot foil. In addition, hot foil the leftover/waste foil with the solid Hot foil plate to get the reverse blooms.

Use the coordinating dies in the Magnolia Bouquet Glimmer set to cut the blooms out. Before adding these to the card panel, add a vellum die-cut circle to help anchor the blooms on the background. 

Foil the ‘Thanks’ sentiment from the Splatter Sentiments Glimmer set in Gold Hot Foil onto black cardstock and use the coordinating die to cut the sentiment out. Finish off by embellished with Ebony Black Nuvo drops
