How pretty is this birthday card? I used the new butterfly glimmer plates to hot foil acetate with rainbow foil, and then die cut the butterflies for a pretty 3-D effect. This was the first time I have hot foiled on acetate, and I am in love with the effect. TIP: I used a heat resistant acetate to withstand the process, and it worked perfectly. You can find the acetate <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="http://Heat Resistant Acetate” target=”_blank”>HERE.
As many of you know, hot foiling works best on very smooth paper. So I assumed a metallic cardstock would work well too. I used Tim Holtz blue metallic cardstock paired with a silver foil for the Be Bold Glimmer sentiments, and the effect is spectacular.
What do you think? Hot foiling on acetate and metallic cardstock is easy and gorgeous. I can’t wait to try this again with other foils and colors. Love and artsy hugs!
