Just for You!

Good Morning Crafters

 Today we have Marleen's tutorial using Gilding Flakes

For this little tutorial you will need:

Double sided sticky sheet.
White card stock
Forest Glade Gilding flakes
Die cutting machine 
Hard paint brush

Cut a piece of card stock big enough to fit the dies, 
but with a decent size boarder round it.

 Add the double sided sticky sheet to your card stock.

Remove the backing sheet and take your now sticky card stock and sprinkle with gilding flakes.

Cover your entire card stock with flakes and push them well into the sheet. 

Remove excess with a hard paint brush 

Once all the excess is removed you should end up with a piece of card smooth and  fully covered.
If your card stock is still sticky, try and add a bit more flake and buff them up with the paint brush.

Add your chosen die/s on top of your piece of now gold card and cut.

The finished die cuts ready to add to your card.
Save the gold card you cut out from!

Marleen's finished project.

The gold border is the gold sheet made using the gilding flakes. 
The black embossed card covers the recess which the frame and lady were cut out from.

What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by today!
