This card was created for SAF 2016 Gilded in Gold with Danielle Flanders.
The all day Stamp-a-Faire event continues today from Papertreyink. This challenge is to use gold leaf. I have never used gold leaf before so I was interested to work with it.
I die cut several shapes out of white cardstock as well as chipboard from the Don't Forget to Write Kit.
I painted the edges and it does dry very quickly. It has a bit of an odor to it so be sure to work in a well ventilated area.
I made several cards using all my different shapes as well as some previous Stamp-a-Faire paper. I decided this would be a perfect day to use it!
I added two gold gilded flower die cut pieces to the corners and stamped the sentiment directly on the paper.
It is hard to see the beauty of the gold but it really packs a punch! This is a fun and easy technique.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
