Spellbinders | Glimmering Peony

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the gorgeous new Glimmering Peony from Spellbinders Yana's Blooming Birthday Collection. This is such a gorgeous collection but I particularly fell in love with the Glimmering Peony.

I started off by foiling the Spellbinders Glimmering Peony Glimmer Hot Foil Plate on to watercolour paper using Spellbinders Black Hot Foil. I used watercolour paper because I had planned to watercolour it but at the last minute changed my mind. So I could have used normal cardstock, but never mind! The black foil gives a slight shimmer but it doesn't give the bright foiling effect so I do like using black foil with certain images. 

The peony was coloured with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and fussy cut out with scissors. I then foiled the sentiment from the Spellbinders Yana's Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil & Die Set on to white cardstock with more black foil. It was then die cut out using the coordinating die. 

I took a panel of black cardstock and debossed lines in to it using a score board and bone folder (I apologise that it is difficult to see in the photos but in real life, it gives a lovely detail to the card). The panel was then adhered flat to an A2 white card base and the peony added on top with thin foam tape, followed by the sentiment with more thin foam tape. To finish of, I added a few sequins.

  1. Would never have thought to have a black foil - subtle and not as intense as other foils. I love the details you add to it with the debossing. It's gorgeous. xx

  2. Agree with Ruth, black foil is unusual but I can imagine so very pretty with a floral image. Your colouring is gorgeous as always and I love the striking bold backgrounds you are using at the moment. Beautiful card, and that sentiment is lovely - such a pretty font! Xx
