A Glimmery Thinking of You

Last Saturday I finally took a few minutes to play a bit with Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine.  I have to admit I need a LOT more practice!!! But after watching some YouTube videos I did manage to make a couple decent pieces and here is a card that used a die instead of a Glimmer Plate.  (And yes, it is Wednesday when I usually show my desk and join the weekly What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday but I'm working on tax stuff.)

My design is quite subtle  I used a piece of card stock that I colored using the Shaving Cream technique.  If you look back in my YouTube videos on Jan. 23 you will find how I did this fun background.  I used the Green Foil and FSJ's Mystic Vine die set (retired) for the design.

Here's a closer look and you can actually see the shimmer.  I think I added 1 too many card stock shims as my die did cut in a couple places.  But some strategically placed adhesive kept the piece together.  I stamped the text from FSJ's Strength & Hope stamp set using Kiwi Slice ink and detail cut it out before popping it up.  The striped piece of paper is from the Follow Your Heart Prints. A few little embellies from the All The Things pack and my card is complete!

What do you think of it??
