This Card is Full of Hugs


Hello, I am back today with one more card using some of the latest new products from Spellbinders. What I have used today is this great phrase This Card is Full of Hugs from the Glimmer Hot Foil Sentiments Collection. I know it will be getting a lot of use as I love to send out these types of cards. There are a total of 6 fun bold sayings in this collection. If you want to see the others, I have all the May arrivals linked for you below along with the particular supplies I used for this card as well.

The color foil I used for my phrase is in the Satin Variety Pack and the color is mint. Isn’t it so pretty? I decided to use the same color palette for my flowers.

I paired the wonderful phrase with a couple of other Spellbinders products; the floral set is called Glimmer Edge Flowers and is brand new to me. FYI…It is on sale for 1/2 price currently! The background panel is called Geometric Optical and is one of my best past purchases as well.

If you look closely at my card you will notice that the leaves on the flowers have a fine line of foil comparatively to the thick line on the flowers, that is because I chose to foil all the dies that came in the set and not just the ones that were designated for foiling. I love stretching my products and this has opened up so many other possibilities with all the die cuts I own. I know I am usually behind the eight ball when it comes to trying new things, but have you tried foiling other dies that were not intended for that purpose? I can’t wait to do more!

I am going to link up this card with Darnell over at NBUS as two of the three products I used are brand new to me.

I certainly appreciate you stopping by! It has taken me an entire day to write this post as my Vertigo won’t go away and computer work makes it much worse, so I only do a bit at a time. However, the trip was totally worth it!

Take care, Nanc’

  4. Oh, no, about the vertigo, Nanc’. It must have been dreadful to travel … but, as you say, so worth it! And this post is worth a read for the tips you give regarding stretching your dies and foiling! The gold-tipped flowers take your beautiful design to a whole new level! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Get well soon! Hugs, Darnell
