Spellbinders | Cosmos Backdrop

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the beautiful Cosmos Backdrop Press Plate from the Spellbinders Pressed Posies Collection. Whilst I wouldn't usually go for a whole over plate pattern (preferring to stick to a set focal point), this plate is gorgeous and I couldn't resist!

Although these are press plates that I am using today (to be used with the Spellbinders BetterPress System), I opted to hot foil with them instead. I find that the press plates give beautiful foiled results! I started off by hot foiling the Spellbinders Cosmos Backdrop Press Plate onto white cardstock using Spellbinders Silver Foil and the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System

I then took the coordinating stencils for the plate, and one by one, placed them on top of the image, adding ink blending to colour it in. I used Altenew Enchanted Garden Crisp Dye Inks for the flower petals, Altenew Golden Sunset Fresh Dye Inks for the flower centres, and Altenew Green Valley Crisp Dye Inks for the leaves. 

I then simply cut the panel down and adhered it onto a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. I took the Spellbinders You Are Everything Sentiments Press Plate & Die Set and foiled it onto white cardstock using Spellbinders Silver Foil. They were die cut out and then I also die cut it another two times, so that I could stack them up to create dimension. The sentiment was then adhered to the card using Bearly Art Glue

I decided to keep the card as is without embellishment as there is a lot of foil on there and that sparkles and glistens enough, I think! I would love to try colouring this image too and hopefully I will get time to do that soon! Thank you so much for stopping by today, it is most appreciated. I hope you have a wonderful day! 


  1. This is really beautiful Michelle. The silver foiling looks really gorgeous and in fact I think I prefer it to gold which I used. That's unusual for me to prefer silver but I love how it looks with your purples and greens! So pretty!
