The Glimmering Thanksgiving Foiled Card came to me so easily when I got the September 2022 Glimmer Hot Foil Club items. As you already know I’ve been asked to be on the Spellbinders Influencer Team. I’m still pinching myself and reveling in the honor I’m feeling.
Along with being an influencer comes a lot of products for me to create with in an effort to inspire you. I’ve linked everything as you read along, or you can scroll down for a complete visual list with images.
Now, you might have this plate, are getting it, or have another product that you feel inspired to use. But either way be sure to tag me on social media so I can see what you make. Tag me with @myinkiefingers

Glimmering Thanksgiving Foiled Card
For my Glimmering Thanksgiving Foiled Card I pulled an alcohol ink project out of my stash that I wasn’t overly pleased with and foiled overtop of it with both Champagne and Copper foils. Don’t you love it when a plate comes with dies? It makes it so easy to cut out the foiled leaves.
I then proceeded to cut the pieces so that I could place them my Glimmering Thanksgiving Foiled Card.
Now, about that card front. You may have noticed that the Diagonal Glimmer Stripes Plate doesn’t actually foil in this direction. Trust me I learned the hard way. I was so set on the lines going in the direction that you see that I actually used the slimmest stripe from the Foiled Brushstrokes and Stripes Set. So yes, I created my own backgound. Line by line.
Adding the leaves
As you can see, if you cut the leaves just right they layer quite nicely. I cut my card front just along the foiled line (foiled with matte gold) then tucked each leaf in behind it. Layering the leaves until I was satisfied with the depth. My alcohol ink background was created on Craft Plastic. So that made it easy to curl the leaves a bit to give the card more dimension and depth.
The last thing to do was mat my card front on some gold paper (I use Recollections from Michaels) then add some of my favorite embellishments from Hai Supply.
A sentiment foiled in copper from the Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips finished this card off perfectly.
