Hey everyone. I’m back with you today sharing a tutorial using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine. I must admit, I haven’t had the chance to play with the Spellbinders glimmer hot foil and all it’s wonders yet. However I felt the holiday card series was a perfect time to add some shine to my holiday cards.
So here is the card we will be making today. It’s a super clean and simple card and one you can easily mass produce. I need to add a disclosure to this video as I used my glimmer plate incorrectly while trying out the foil. The foil ended up adhering to my plate and I had to use a sand eraser to remove the foil. By doing this I did get some scratch markers on the plate so my tree is a little bit distressed. 😉
Let’s get into the tutorial. I hope you enjoy the process I’m sharing with you and I will be using this machine more often in future videos. It’s a really great machine to have on hand and I would highly recommend you get one.
As I stated in the video, you can definitely use this die with other colors of foils and card stock. These kinds are cards are super easy to pull together by making an assembly line with your supplies. You can see from the tutorial I was able to create two beautiful cards in a short amount of time. Give it a try, I’m sure you will be happy with your results.
I also created another card for some additional inspiration. This card was super easy to create. I used the Spellbinders Love Comes Down die cut. I die cut this image three times with 100lb Neenah Solar White card stock adhering them together for added weight. Using glitter red card stock as my base, I adhered this beautiful image onto the glitter paper. Neenah Solar White card stock was the base for my card today.
Look how beautiful this card is! I love the simplicity of this card and will totally be making more of these.
All supplies used for the video are listed below. Have fun creating and don’t forget to comment. We will be back tomorrow with another guest designer and more inspiration for your holiday cards. Have a great day everyone and see you back here tomorrow.

Teresa Doyle says
Such gorgeous cards Dana. I don’t have a hot foil machine but I do love the look that you get with it. (I just do the foil/laminator style but they are both beautiful.)
Your bonus card is gorgeous too. Who doesn’t love glitter?
Vicki Kroll says
Love your combo of black, red, and silver on your first card. So elegant! Your second bonus card is super. The red glitter background makes the white die-cut seriously stand out. Beautiful!

Lovely palette on the cards today, the second is a real show stopper.

I really love the Christmas tree card. So elegant.

Both of these cards are so beautiful and I love the red backgrounds. I almost got the Love Came Down Die but had to stick to my budget.

Beautiful cards! I love the look of the foiled tree design! I’ve been wondering how the Glimmer machine works, so your video was great! Your bonus card is so pretty with the layered die cut! That really gives it some nice dimension! Pretty background with the glitter cardstock!
Marisela Delgado says
Such beautiful cards.
Mary Holshouser says
A tree is never perfect. So your tree has a few
“pale” spots – no big deal. it’s still a great card.
Love the second card. The red behind the
beautiful die cuts is gorgeous. thanks for
