Glimmer Cards


About a year ago I purchased a Spellbinder's Glimmer System.  I must have purchased this card set at the same time.  I really don't remember.  Anyways, I finally decided to make the cards.  I like the way the glimmer cards look, but boy, what a royal pain to make them. On the last two cards, every single leaf and flower needs to be glimmered and cut at a separate time because there is only two leaf sizes and three flower sizes so the dies need to be used repeatedly, then cut out with one die for each shape.  It took me two days just to glimmer and cut the flowers and leaves.  Geez!!!  This system would definitely not be useful for bulk Christmas cards.  The gold backgrounds were also done with the Glimmer System.

  2. so funny, I've been thinking of getting a glimmer hot foil system but keep putting it off. I'm getting closer to buying one the foiling looks so good. Love your cards ♥

  3. These are gorgeous! My glimmer arrived a couple weeks ago and I haven't had a chance to actually make anything. I glimmered a bunch of sentiments and die cut them, and that's it. I really need to make time to play! I love your cards!

  4. These are gorgeous. I'm going to have to research the glimmer hot foil system as I see from your work the result is beautiful. xx

  5. I am sorry it was such a pain to make, but the cards are beautiful. I just do the old fashioned foiling, when I do it.

  6. Diane, they are all delightful keepsake cards, but what an annoyance to make it sounds like. I would kinda forget I had it, lol. But that's me. Heeheehee xoxo
