Gilding Flakes

I’ve been having a play with the gilding flakes that came out in the spring summer catalogue. I used them with the heat and stick powder but there are so many ways to use them. I though the sunflower would look gorgeous in shining gold so I used the Celebrate Sunflower set. I embossed the black backing paper and then gold embossed the wire on the very vanilla piece to tie in with the gold on the sunflowers.

They look really shiny and I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. Must remember that the flakes are really light and floaty so sneezing whilst using them is not the thing to do!

I finished the card off with a gold embossed sentiment and voila, a card using the gilding flakes. This was quite out of my comfort zone as it was quite messy but so effective and I love the results.

Am now off to clean up my craft room 🙂

Until next time
