New Solid shaped hot foil plates – For simple modern masculine birthday cards

Spellbinders have launched some fun small solid shaped hot foil plates. These are smaller than an A2 card so you can create fun one layer foiled cards with your left over foiled sheets to use up the waste and create foiled apertures for your card bases. I got to play with the Essential Glimmer Solid Oval hot foil plate creating two modern cards, which work well for masculine/unsiex cards. 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.

For this card I’m using a piece of left over foil that I had foiled the Diagonal Glimmer Stripes Hot Foil Plate with in  Gold Hot Foil. Place the Essential Glimmer Solid Oval hot foil plate on your Glimmer machine and allow this to warm up for awhile. The hotter it is the better the overall foil.

Place the left over foil sheet with pretty side down over the Oval plate. Place a piece of white card on top and hot foil according to your die-cutting machine. Peel the foil back to reveal a one layered oval foiled shape on your card. 

To finish this card off, I added a layered thanks die-cut from the Yana’s Layered Scripted Sentiment die set and a couple of hot foiled sentiments from the Everyday Sentiments II hot foil plate set. Lastly, I embellished with a few Black Nuvo Drops

For this card I wanted to show you that the solid shaped foil plates work well on coloured cardstock. Again this uses a left over foiled sheet using the Diagonal Glimmer Stripes Hot Foil Plate  in Aura Hot foil. This was hot foiled onto Nautical Hero Hues cardstock with the Essential Glimmer Solid Oval hot foil plate

My tip when using the shaped foil plates on coloured card is to heat the plate up well and ensure there is high pressure when run through your die-cutting machine so you may want to add a shim or two of card to add more pressure. 

I fussy cut this out and foam mounted it onto a white card base and added another sentiment sing Yana’s Layered Scripted Sentiment die set and Everyday Sentiments II hot foil plate set. To finish the card I embellished with Morning Dew Nuvo Drops
