Here’s a card I made for Valentine’s Day and never got around to posting. But I don’t think it is exclusively a Valentine’s Day card. Just something a little flirty when you feel like sending someone a little wink!
I wanted to try some of the gold leafing technique, which is oh so cool and easy to do. With just some Heat & Stick emboss powder and the new Gilded Leafing flakes, it is such an easy touch to elevate the look of your cards. I have worked with gold leafing a lot in the past and I have to say the Stampin’ Up! gold leafing is great.
In fact, the gold leafing is so easy, I decided to try gold leafing one of the Silver Heart Charms. I think it came out great. I then added a the punch out lips from the Heart & Kisses set. It was mounted on one of those spring pop mounts everyone is so crazy about. It makes a nice little touch.
If you like lots of shine and gold accents in a card, you just have to try gold leafing! It really does up your card making game! And sending a little flirt now and then to someone is a good thing too!
