Here’s a simple little card using the Art Gallery set along with leaf spring from Pretty Perennials. And what ties all this together is the Gold Hoop Embellishment. Sadly, it is retiring May 3rd. But there is still time to get these beauties while supplies last. I have used them quite a bit and I love the way they tie a collages card together.
I listed the Gilded Leafing Embellishment in my card supplies below, but I realized after looking at this card, I really missed an opportunity where the Gilded Leafing would have elevated this card design to the next level. I find the Gilded Leafing super easy to use.
Simply take a blender pen and some of the Versamark ink and color in the areas you want to gild. Then apply some Heat & Stick Powder and heat emboss. That creates the sticky surface for you to add your gilded leafing to. I take a pinch of the flakes and using my bone folder, buff in the Gilded Leafing. It will adhere and the more you buff, the smoother it will get. If you wanted it a little more textured, then buff less. You can use that, your fingertip or an embossing stylus.
