Today I’m featuring:
Glimmer Peony on Dark Background
I love the look and feel of gold foil on dark backgrounds as this also allow me to apply easy colouring with coloured pencils. So to make this C6 card, I applied Polished Brass Hot Foil over Navy Blue Cardstock using Glimmering Peony Glimmer plate. To add color, I used coloured pencils.
Glimmer Peony on white Background
I also wanted to add a light background to the golden hot foiled peonies. For this C6 card, I also hot foiled the peonies on Cosmic Sky (Navy Blue) Cardstock and I applied colors using coloured pencils. Then, I fussy cut the image using scissors.
I used adhesive foam pads to adhere the peonies over a hot foiled striped background made using white smooth cardstock, Polished Brass hot foil, and Skinny Stripes Background hot plate. The sentiment was made using Yana’s Special Sentiments and Polished Brass hot foil.
Glimer Peony Gift Box
You can also use glimmer plates to decorate memory albums covers, tags or the side panels of 3D projects like this small gift box.
The box measures 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and it is 1-1/2 inches tall.
To make it, I first cut 2 pieces of cardstock.
- Lid: 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. I scored at 1″ inch around the edges.
- Box body: 6-7/8″ x 6-7/8″. I scored a 1- 1/2″ inches around the edges.
Scoring the piece for the lid allowed me to find the right placement to apply Polish Brass hot foil using Glimmering Peony hot plate. Once I applied the hot foil, I also applied colours using coloured pencils. Then, I trimmed the corners of both pieces to create flaps and I glued them in place to shape the box.
That’s all for today.
I hope you enjoyed this post.
