Floral Gold Leaf Card
By Gail Booth
Designer Tip: If your first mega flaked stamped image is not perfect, use it to cut out separate elements for paper tole style stacking.
- Card front: Place a blank card with the fold on your left and cover with black cardstock. Glue 4 7/8”x6 3/8” Emma’s Garden pink dot paper on center.
- Place 4 ¼”x5” black cardstock on your craft sheet. Squeeze Flitter Glu onto the wedge and use to apply the glue onto the floral stamp. Stamp the image on the left side of the cardstock, then cover the stamped image with mega flakes. Tap the flakes in place with your fingers, then burnish with a circular motion. Shake off the excess flakes, then use the Scoochy foam in a gentle pressure circular motion to burnish and remove the flakes from the image, continuing until the fine detail emerges in the image (do not over burnish or it will remove the shine from the mega flakes). Repeat the process for two more images on remaining black cardstock and save for embellishments.
- “Chomp” the corners ½” and mat on Emma’s Garden multi-color floral paper with a 1/8” border, then on black cardstock and Emma’s Garden teal floral paper with 1/16” borders. Wrap two lengths of pink and purple twine across opposite corners and tie in a bow at the bottom right, as shown. Glue at the top of the card with an even border around the upper and side edges.
- Cut out several flowers and butterflies from the saved mega flaked images and foam tape in place over the corresponding images. Foam tape extras around the bow. Place “Thinking of You” Dazzles at the bottom. Place bling on the flowers, butterflies and dots of the “i’s”.
