Hot Foiling on Acetate and Metallic Cardstock

Hi Crafty Friends, and welcome back. Today I’m sharing a fun technique using the new Spellbinders’ Paper Arts Glimmer Edge Butterflies and Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments.

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.

Finally, I created a background panel with the Essential Duo rectangles, and layered under an embossed panel using the new March Embossing Folder of the Month.

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!
