Glimmer Hexagons and a Glimmer Tutorial

The Spellbinders December Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month Club is here! and it ROCKS! This month, you get the Perfect Fit Hexagon Strips. It’s a set of 4 glimmer plates and 4 matching dies, along with a roll of Aura foil.

This is my 1st card. I Love it!

The strip on the left is the Aura foil. It is so beautiful. I paired it with blush and teal blue foil.

My 2nd card is all blue foil with a touch of sparkle and black. The dies for the Hexagons are also chevron. See that that tiny black chevron strip? I made it with only the dies from the kit.

Next I have peach, black and gray. Oh how I love black foil! So striking. and I love that I can add chevron borders to a few layers.

The Glimmer Hot Foil membership subscription includes an exclusive Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Set + One Roll of Foil.

Step By Step tutorial:

I like to glimmer 1st and then make the cards. Here are a few step by step pictures so you can see my process. Line up all the hexagon strips on your hot foil machine and make sure it is turned on.

Then add your foil, color side down. It does not have to be perfect since you will be cutting all the strips apart.

The add cardstock. white or colored card stock and change your foil colors too. Just repeat these steps a few times

Add all you plates ( I have 1 cardstock shim) and run the sandwich through your die cutting machine.

NOTE: You will need the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine to use with this subscription, plus a compatible die cutting machine. I used my FSJ Platinum machine. A list of compatible machines is available on the Spellbinders website.

This is what you get. I kept going with more colors after this picture.

Next use the dies to cut them all apart. A few of mine did not foil perfectly and thats OK . I had plenty to work with and I saved all the extra pieces.
