Hot Foiling + Die Cutting = AMAZING featuring Spellbinders’ Glimmering Build A Banner & Just A Tweet

Updated: Oct 12, 2021

Hello everyone! I am back with these awesome sets by Spellbinder, Glimmering Build A Banner & Just A Tweet, in four easy cards! Hot foiling and die cutting are perfect partners! The banner set is so clever and easy to modify for different looks and Just A Tweet is simply FABULOUS with many layered details to take those die cuts from beautiful to AWESOME!

I began this set of cards by creating all four banners. The sentiments and the striped detail plates were foiled on lavender, pink, white and black card stock. After these pieces were die cut, foam was cut with the die used for the sentiments. All banners were assembled. The same card stock was used to cut the background panel from The Lovely Card Creator for each the cards. They were adhered to A2 sized card bases.

The Single Banner Cards

There was lots of die cutting using the dies from JUST A TWEET. The dies are small so it was a perfect opportunity to put the Sizzix Sidekick to work. It was a great time saver to have this mini die cutter right on my work surface. I pretty much followed the ‘cut as you go‘ method and assembled the elements through out the process. For the single banner cards, I first adhered the largest elements; the banner and the bird. The florals were used to fill in the open space and balance the card. Iridescent confetti was place in the flower centres and in the background. For the lavender card, they were topped up with Nuvo Jewel Drops Key Lime and Pale Periwinkle. Black Nuvo Drops were used for the bird’s eye and Nuvo Vintage Drops Bohemian Teal accented a couple of flowers on the card of many colours!!!

The Complex Banner Cards

For the cards with the complex banners, the florals were added to embellish the banner. Iridescent confetti and tiny gold die circles were used as accents. Both were topped with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.
