To A Dear Friend

Hello bloggers!   It is back to gilding flakes for today.  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Rose Bed embossing folder.  Next I covered a piece of card with a sticky adhesive sheet and then used Autumn Leaves gilding flakes on it.  From that sheet, I cut the Priscella die, two of the Priscella's Border dies, a Cosmos Flower and the To A Dear Friend sentiment.  I glued the two borders to the edge of the background.  I added a black backing to the Priscella die and added it between the borders.  Next I cut the Mallory die in black and added a white backing to it.  I layered that on top of the Priscella die.  I cut a shadow sentiment in black and added it behind the gilded one and glued it in the middle of the Mallory die.   I added the Cosmos Flower to the upper corner of the sentiment.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue
Beee-yooo-teee-full!! I love the little bit of black. Just enough to make it pop.
I really must dig out my gilding flakes. Always forget how stunning they are.
Happy Friday everyone x

Hi Sue.
Gorgeous. I've still not used the flakes I bought two years ago, I bet my glue has gone all hard now too. I really have no excuse as I do have adhesive sheets, so although I couldn't replicate this beautiful inspiration I could have some guilded Cosmos flowers if I got my act together lol. Hope your day starts as beautiful xxx

Morning Sue, a gorgeous and opulent looking card. Love the way finer dies look when cut out of a gilding flakes piece of card. I think I also need to get my gilding flakes out and have a play again. Have a good day everyone. Bx

Beautiful card :))
Love the pretty shine of the gilding flakes.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Love the design of the card but not too sure about the amount of the black. I can't work out whether it is because of the amount of it in one area or whether the area would have been better in a different colour - sorry.

Good Morning Sue and all
Stunning card this morning and who does not love a card with some gilding flakes on it. The gilding flakes really shows of the details in the dies and works beautifully with the rose embossed background.

Hey Sue, what a beautiful card, I've not long ago watched one of your videos on you tube and I purchased some silver guilding flakes and glue from my local store. I've not used it yet but think it will be stunning on a wedding card for my daughter. Thank you again for all your beautiful inspiration x

Gorgeous card, love the effect of gilding flakes on the diecuts!

Suzzette Yandle said...

CS Gilding Flakes certainly add that special touch to elements of one's card designs. Its best not to sneeze when working with this feather soft and light weight flakes like I did the last time I worked with them. I am still finding tiny bits of golden flakes around my craft room. All in all, I still like working with the flakes and the beautiful look they give to elements. A stunning design today. Thank you for sharing. Hugs
