Gold Gilding Flakes Cards

Well, I've been away for the past three month and now I'm back with my class cards for April. 


Gilding flakes are fun to play with but can be quite messy if you're not careful. I have found out through, that the Leaf Foils from Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ), are less messy then other brands. The sheets are larger and easier to handle. This is perfect for teaching my classes where so many people will be using it at the same time.  And for those of you that do mot like MESS. 

First step in this card was to cut a piece of FSJ White Liner Sheets, 3 3/4" x 5". 
1" X 4" strips of FSJ Sunday Adventure Prints were cut from 3 different designs of DP, as well as two colors of cardstock.
These strips were then placed on the sticky piece of white liner sheet leaving a slight gap between strips. Then the Gold Leaf foil was worked into all of the sticky gaps. 
When finished, it was then layered onto a Forest Green Matt.

The sentiment and mat were cut from the Treat Labels and Piercing Dies. 
The Happy Birthday is from the NEW FSJ stamp set, Inside and Out..

The flower and leaves were cut using the Blooming Details Die Set with Lemon Grass & Bubblegum cardstock and Mirror Gold Cardstock.

Stunning card! I love playing with Gilding Flakes too and I've only tried Tonic. You're right, they can be a little messy so now I'll have to try this brand if it comes in sheets.
Thanks for playing along with us this month and hope to see for our upcoming challenges at Papercraft Business!
