Foiled Christmas Ornament

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I have two foiled Christmas cards to share with you.

My cards today use the Spellbinders Ornament Glimmer Hot Foil Plate die set. This die set contains the large ornament glimmer plate, along with four sentiment plates and then the dies to create the poinsettia and leaves etc.

I couldn't decide what color to use for the ornament and also for the background panel, so in the end I made two cards.

For my first card, I used gold foil for the ornament and red foil for the Merry Christmas sentiment in the centre of the ornament. After foiling the ornament, I cut it out using scissors as this doesn't come with a die. 

The background panel was created by gold embossing the Noel Bold Print stamp from Hero Arts. 

I adhered the ornament to the background panel and then decorated the top of the ornament using the flowers and leaves from the set.

For my first card I gold foiled on white cardstock and added a red poinsettia. For my second card, the ornament and sentiment were both gold foiled. I then die cut the poinsettia using a white glittered cardstock, it's not completely glittered, just flecks all over the cardstock.

For the inside of the card. I used a Crafter's Companion Happy Christmas Hot Foil Stamp and gold embossed using the same colored cardstock as the background on the front of the card. This Hot Foil Stamp comes with a coordinating die which I used to die cut the sentiment.

I then added a poinsettia and pines to the top of the sentiment using the same colors as the flower on the front.

It's hard to show the beauty of the gold foiling in the photos, in real life there look amazing.

Very pretty cards. I like the detailing in the poinsettia dies.
