VIDEO | Adding Layers to Clean & Simple Cards

Hello there, today I have three projects to share with you where I have added layers to clean and simple cards. I think most people think that you can't add multiple layers to clean and simple cards as then they will no longer be clean and simple. Let me show you today that you can!


All my cards today feature the Spellbinders Becca Feeken Sweet Cardlets Glimmer Project Kit. For the foiling I used the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, along with the Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine. The sets that I am sharing with you today will be available to purchase separately from the 10th October 2020, but can be purchased now in the kit (which comes with foil, supplies and everything you need to get started).


My first card uses the new Spellbinders Just Bee-Cause Sweet Cardlets Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. I started off by foiling the bee from the set on to white cardstock using Spellbinders Black Foil. I then die cut it using the coordinating die. I foiled the sentiment on to FSJ Black Licorice Cardstock using Spellbinders Gold Foil (included in the kit). I then cut the sentiment using the sentiment strip die from the Spellbinders Holiday Sentiments Series 2 Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set.


I took a panel of white cardstock and foiled the honeycomb background on to it using more Spellbinders Gold Foil. This panel was added to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I then added the bee and sentiment strips with foam tape also. To finish off, I added a gold sequin, as well as black enamel dots.


My next card uses the Spellbinders Graceful Swan Sweet Cardlets Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. I started off by foiling the background pattern on to FSJ Tin Pail Cardstock using Spellbinders Opal Foil (included in the kit). This was cut down using a square die from the Spellbinders Hemstitch Squares Etched Dies Set. It was added to a 5" x 5" white card base with foam tape.


I then foiled the outline swan (there is a solid and outline in the set) on to white cardstock using Spellbinders Silver Foil. It was cut out using the coordinating die and added to the card with foam squares. I then foiled the sentiment from the set on to white cardstock using Spellbinders Skybright Foil. It was cut down using the sentiment strip I used on the bee card. It was added to the card with more foam squares. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Jewels.


My final card for today uses the Spellbinders Lovely Ladybug Sweet Cardlets Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. I started off by foiling the body and the wings of the ladybug on to white cardstock using Spellbinders Black Foil. I cut the body out using the coordinating die. I then coloured the wings using Copic Markers (I used R89, R37, R27, R24, R14) before fussy cutting out with scissors. The wings were then added to the body with foam squares.


I took an older FSJ Steel Rule Tag Die and cut it from white cardstock. I foiled the Spellbinders Polka Dot Strip Glimmer Hot Foil Plate on to it using Spellbinders Red Foil. I added Spellbinders Black Twine through the top of the tag and then it was adhered to an A2 white card base with foam tape. The ladybug wad added on top with more foam tape. I then foiled the sentiment in the set on to FSJ Black Licorice Cardstock using Spellbinders Red Foil. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape.
