New Zealand Background with Gilding Flakes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This is so simple to construct, using Gilding Flakes. You can swap the Gilding Flakes for glitter or any medium you like - paints, pixie powders, misters, acetate backgrounds, printed background papers, anything!

For this one, I have simply cut all the layers in the New Zealand Background, added Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to the back and then rubbed Gilding Flakes on the front. Very straight forward so just a list of ingredients today -

Products used -
Sue Wilson Dies - New Zealand Background, Double Pierced Background Rectangles, Classic Foldover Flowers, Blossoming Branch, Pierced Flags
Woodware Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet
CS Harvest Moon Gilding Flakes
Woodware - Vintage Pocket Watches (sentiment)
Clear Perfect Medium
CS Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder
Ivory Felt
Self Adhesive Pearls - Cream 3mm
CE Mounting Cushion
CS Glue
Card - Milk, Antique Gold Pearl

Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Oh Julia, I just love a card like this, it is beautiful and of course I love gilding flakes, but then pixie powders too, so the ideas for it are endless, as you say...thank you...Luv Ursula xx

  11. Wonderful card and a springboard for many other ideas as Ursula pointed out. I ordered these dies when I saw you on Hochanda and they are on the way. Can't wait to try this out. You are a great inspiration (and temptation too, Ha!).
