Hello there and welcome! I am getting ready for Mothers Day and this year instead of the usual stamped flowers, I am using the Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers dies. These amazing die sets really are spectacular to use.
For my first card, I used the Lovely Layers: Hydrangea flower die. The flowers are just so beautiful on this card, that the backgrounds needed to be simple, but elegant. So for this background I got out one of my favorite tool, my Hot Foil Glimmer Machine from Spellbinders! For this card, I used the Essential Glimmer Rectangles Hot Foil Plate, which leaves small dots all around the cardstock.
Glimmer Hot Foil Tip: If you are thinking of getting a hot foil machine or you have one and are frustrated by the extra foil that makes it on to your cardstock, invest in sand erasers! These amazing little erasers will remove the extra foil where it isn't supposed to be.
