Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Laurie Willison here. I am stopping in with some Christmas cards because yes…it’s about that time! I am still wondering where the summer went and just can’t believe the holidays are around the corner.
Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System is the absolute perfect place to start on your holiday cards. There are so many amazing Glimmer Plates to make these cards quick and simple and easy to mass produce! I have 3 cards to share today using several plates that will give you a gorgeous foiled look but keep the card making process nice and quick!
Holiday Cheer Card
To create this card, I used a Hero Arts set Color Layering Holly for a bright and colorful background. I added in 2 strips of Gold Washi down the middle of the card and then finished each of the holly berries off with FSJ’s Journey Glaze. I love the shine that adds to the background.

Peace On Earth Card
This next project was super quick to make. I used the Peace on Earth Glimmer Plate to create this clean and simple look.
Gold Foil is a great way to get the perfect shine for holiday cards. I hot foiled the plate on white cardstock and then used washi tape to mask off lines on the front. Using a blender brush, I ink blended in the lightest layer of gray ink for a subtle stripe.
I attached the striped panel to a white card base to finish off the card.
This last card uses the Alphabet Ornament Glimmer Plate. This plate is so beautiful with its calligraphy style font creating a fun design and one that looks amazing foiled!
To create this card, I used the Matte Gold Foil with Glimmer Plate on white cardstock. I took a circle die and die cut the ornament. I needed some more stripes so I added washi to the front of teh circle and blended in red stripes.
Last, I tied a green bow and attached 2 gold bells to the bow. I decided not to go for a sentiment on this card, which is unusual for me but i love how the Ornament shines by itself.
