Gilded Leafing

January 28, 2021

I have had the jar of Gilded Leafing sitting on my desk for some time, but yesterday I got to play and share with everyone on my Facebook Live. Today I am sharing another card I created whilst I was “playing”. I attached a piece of Poppy Parade card to Basic White card and then embossed using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Granny Apple Green card. I attached Tear and Tape around the edge of a piece of Basic White card, removed the cover and then added some Gilded Leafing. I did this in a largish plastic container using a Blending Brush to make sure that the Gilded Leafing was securely attached. I stamped the flower from the Art Gallery stamp set onto Whisper White card using Granny Apple Green ink and attached it to the panel with the Gilded edges using dimensionals.

The whole piece is attached to the card front also using dimensionals. I stamped the flower from the Art Gallery stamp set onto Whisper White card using Poppy Parade ink. I stamped the detailed image over the top using Versamark ink, sprinkled on Heat and Stick Powder and used the Heat Tool to melt the adhesive before adding Gilded Leafing. I love how you get the extra dimension on the flower. I used the Floral Gallery Dies to cut out the image before trimming away the flowers and attaching them over the stamped flowers. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Art Gallery stamp set onto Basic White card using Poppy Parade ink. I used the co-ordinating Floral Gallery Dies to cut out the greeting.

I cut a slightly larger piece of Basic White card and attached Tear and Tape to cover the piece. I removed the backing, attached the greeting and then added Gilded Foil to the edges of the panel. The greeting is attached to the card front using a double dimensional where necessary. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card. I stamped the flower onto scrap Basic White card using Poppy Parade ink and then stamped the detailed image using Versamark ink. I sprinkled the image with Heat and Stick powder, heat set it and added Gilded Leafing. I die cut the image, trimmed off the flowers and attached them over the stamped image. I added Tear and Tape to long edge of a narrow strip of Whisper White card. I embossed Poppy Parade card using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and attached it so that a little of the sticky part of the Basic White card was showing. I added Gilded Leafing before attaching the panel to the bottom of the stamped Basic White card.

I think I might just be a little “in love” with the Gilded Leafing. It has so much more dimension than just Gold Embossing with the embossing powder. I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
