Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful and beautiful mums/moms, mothers in the word!

Because of a good mom worth more than all the gold in the universe, I can't avoid thinking in gold when making cards for mums so here you got an extra shiny sparkling card for all of you!

I used the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the month, Gold Foil (024) included in the kit and Craft Perfect Gold glitter paper and the Spellbinders hot Foil System.

I  also used alphabet die set as Deco Bold Alpha by Spellbinders to personalize this card.

To make this card,  I first applied foil on  Strathmore  Bristol Smooth Paper using the  Spellbinders hot Foil System.

 I was planning to add a watercolour wash on top of the foiled image but the Filigree Frame glimmer plate offers beautiful delicate details and I changed my mind about watercolouring.

The foil looks beautiful just like it is.

I then used the oval die included in the kit to cut a window in the centre of the foiled image and I added a shaker.

I know is hard to see in the picture but I added a soft pink piece of cardstock behind the shaker to add a warmth element to this card.  

I also used pink, whites and gold sequins and confetti.

The shaker at the back of the front panel adds dimension to this card. 

To make the shaker I also used Platinum foam sheets that are super thick. I used double-sided tape and Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to glue everything in place.

I couldn't resist and I added a couple of tiny mini flowers and leaves die cuts. these were made using dies from the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month - May 2019.  I love tiny mini floral dies!!

Tomorrow I'll be sharing a project using the large die of the month as well so make sure to come back!
