Foiled Charming Floral Border (and a variation)
This card features the “Charming Floral Border” hot foil plate along with the coordinating layering stencils and die all from Pink Fresh Studios.
The background panel was created with the Spellbinders “Skinny Stripe Background” hot foil plate.
I used the “Solid” hot foil plate from Pink Fresh Studios to create a piece of gold card stock and then cut the greeting from it using a die from the “Happy Birthday Friendship Script” die set from Memory Box.
You can see all the shine with more light hitting it in this photo:
The sentiment strip was heat embossed in gold with a stamp from the “Tiny Words” stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and then cut with a die from thePhotoPlay “Sentiment Strips” set.
All of the foiling was done with Spellbinders Gold glimmer foil. Inks used were Gina K Designs Peach Bellini, Tomato Soup, Moonlit Fog, and Dark Sage. The card stock was GKD Peach Bellini (no longer available?) and white.
My initial idea for this card was to use the die to create a shaped border. Because this was still in the planning stages, I left the Charming Floral Border panel uncolored and ended up liking the simplicity of the gold and white. I felt like the top half needed a little something more, and I added a few gold dot embellishments (cut with a die from the Cuttlebug “Celebration Confetti” set along with the greeting. Here is that version.
Here’s a photo with a little more light:

Beautiful! You have mastered the Glimmer machine. Mine mostly gathers dust.
Both cards are so gorgeous and the foiling adds elegance to the designs. Both beautiful!
Your decision to leave the second white and gold is gorgeous and has such a fashionable flair.
More than charming! Your foiling with the glimmer machine is perfection and creates a very professional vibe to your cards. Love the colored card but the elegance of the white and gold shaped border is quite amazing!!
Beautiful!!! Leaving the second one white and gold is so classy.
WOW! Both of these are stunning and the foiling is wonderful. I like both but the elegance of the white and gold card really attracted my attention.
This first card is so cool! Love the beautiful look. The second one is great with using the image as the border. What fabulous ideas you create.
