Spellbinders | Glimmer Essentials

Hello there, there have been lots of new releases over the last couple of months and today, I am using the new Glimmer Essentials Collection. This wonderful collection is simply as described, essential glimmer plates in basic shapes. These are so versatile and can be paired with so many different stamps and dies. 

For my card, I started off by taking a panel of black cardstock and foiling one of the new Spellbinders Essential Duo Lines Glimmer Plates on top with Spellbinders Lavender Petal Glimmer Hot Foil Roll

I then took the Clearly Besotted Perfect Peonies image and stamped it on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured it with Copic Markers and fussy it out. The panel was adhered to an A2 black card base with tape runner and the peonies added on top with foam tape. 

I took the sentiment from Spellbinders Yana's Tiny Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set and foiled it on to more black cardstock with the Lavender Petal Foil. It was cut in to a strip using the die in the set and then adhered to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few sequins (sadly now discontinued, sorry!).
