Hot Foiled See-Through Birthday Card with Peonies

Hello crafty friends! Today I'm sharing a see-through birthday card with a foiled acetate front using Honey Bee Stamps Ombré Dots Hot Foil Plate.  I'm also using the gorgeous Lovely Layers: Peony Honey Cuts to create a very special birthday card. Keep reading for all the details!

I followed the directions for my hot foil machine (which is on sale, as of this blog post date, at a very good price HERE) to add Aura gold foil to my acetate with the Ombré Dots Hot Foil Plate. This acetate is a specialty product that is thicker than the acetate sold for creating windows for your shaker cards and it is called Spellbinders Glimmer Specialty Clear Film Sheets.  This product works beautifully with your hot foil plates!

Next I took an A2 card base and trimmed the front off, leaving about 3/8" at the top. On the inside of the flap, I added some double-sided adhesive and adhered the foiled acetate. Then I cut three 3/8" x 4-¼" strips of white cardstock and adhered two at the bottom of the acetate--one on the front and the other on the back. I adhered the other strip on the top inside edge. This gives a clean look with the card is opened.

Next I die cut three Double Stitched Ovals and adhered them to the card. I adhered one on the card front, the other behind that one, and the third, to the card inside directly behind the first two.

I created a sentiment for the inside of the card using two sentiments from the Inside: Birthday Sentiments stamp set. I heat embossed one with gold embossing powder and die cut it with the coordinating die. I adhered that to the oval and stamped the other sentiment with Intense Black ink.

I die cut all of the pieces of the Lovely Layers: Peony Honey Cuts from white cardstock. Then I used some Copic markers to color each one. For the peony I used: Y13, Y00, RV02, and RV10. The leaves are colored with G28, G46, G24, and G43.

If you go to the Lovely Layers: Peony in the Honey Bee shop, there is a link for a downloadable layering guide to assist in getting those layers just right! You can use glue to adhere the layers together, or use foam tape, as I did, to create even more dimension!

I stamped the sentiment from the Squeeze The Day stamp set with clear embossing ink, sprinkled on gold embossing powder and heat set it. Then I used the coordinating Honey Cut to die cut it out. I used more foam to pop it up on the card.

I absolutely love how this turned out! Trying something new, like hot foiling onto acetate, just gets my creative mojo going! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a beautiful day!
