Hello, friends! I hope you’re doing well and are having a great weekend. I am heading out of town for the next week – I am super excited to be heading up to my childhood camp in Wisconsin! It is my happy place. Before packing up, I was able to fit in some play time in my craft room. I played with some new Betterpress plates from Spellbinders. I paired them with foil, and I love the results! I have a new YouTube video showing how I made a card with two layers of foiled elements. You can view it below or go to YouTube.



Note: all supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this blog post.

The first plate I played with is the Pumpkins & Ghosts Background BetterPress Plate. This is a really fun plate – I hot foiled it with opaque black foil. Since I didn’t want to cover it up, I made a flat shaker.

My next card uses the Spider Web Background BetterPress Plate. I foiled it with opaque white foil. The cute cat is from the Gnome Drive Halloween set. I hot foiled the sentiment with another BetterPress plate – this is from the Sentiments of Wonder BetterPress Plate & Die Set

This last card is my favorite and features two layers of foiling. I first foiled the new Pine Sprays Hot Foil Plate onto blue card stock with cobalt blue foil. I then foiled the Chic Merry Christmas BetterPress Plate with white opaque foil. I also hot foiled a sentiment with red foil on the inside. This comes from the A Merry Little Christmas Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. Check out the video to see how it came together!

I hope these cards put a smile on your face today. Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I appreciate you being here.

Wishing you all a crafty day,
