Hi friends, have you checked out the Layered Glimmer collection from Spellbinders? It has beautiful glimmer plates and dies that make up different layers of flowers and leaves. I am sure I will be reaching for goodies from this collection quite often. I made two cards using these today.
I started by building the flower pieces – I originally used Espresso Bean glimmer hot foil over yellow cardstock to make flowers as well as centers. I changed my mind mid project and kept only the center. I did the flower petals with Gold foil later.

Glimmer Hot Foil Roll – Gold
Glimmer Hot Foil Roll – Espresso Bean
Start by using the two largest rectangle dies to cut out rectangles from Bristol Smooth paper.
Use the hexagonal frame plate and the Thank You plate and tape it to the panel. Use washi tape or any other low-tack tape for this and create a hinge.
Line up and secure the Espresso Bean hot foil using more tape if needed and glimmer it.
Use same foil color with yellow cardstock for the centers.
Next use the same method to foil the green leafy branch on top.
Use yellow cardstock and gold foil to create flower petals.
Also use green foil color to foil leave centers and die cut these out. Also die cut the cut-only petals and also cut out flower centers.
Use the tiny dies from Geometric Floral Glimmer set to create smaller flowers.
Assemble the main flower and go to town with assembling the tiny flowers :)
Mount on cardbases made from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and enjoy!
For once, I did not add any gems or bling to these cards. The glimmered petals and the tiny little colorful flowers did it for me.
