Today I am showcasing the beautiful Graceful Swan Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die set from the Sweet Cardlets Collection designed by Becca Feeken,
I love this set. The beautiful background plate is useful for all sorts of projects.
For today's card and treat box I used the Bright Pallette ArtEssentials Watercolours set by Jane Davenport, to create a loose watercolour background on watercolour card stock, before foiling with the hot foil plate using my Glimmer Hot Foil System. The foiled background actually has a distressed look as I didn't want the background to overwhelm my beautiful foiled swan. To obtain a stronger foil finish on watercolour card, you need to leave the foil to heat up for longer on the Hot Foil System.
My treat holder holds a small pot of jam !
Have you noticed that there are two swan hot foil plates with this set? One is a stylish outline of a swan and the other is a silhouette. I love the sentiment I used on my card too. There is another included in the set which says "Just Enough Grace For Today".
The background dies for both projects are from the Elegant Twist Collection, also designed by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will visit again on Wednesday as I have some really lovely Christmas projects to share.
Ciao for now and ............................"happy crafting everybody!"
