Gilding Flakes Floral Layers Happy Everything
It has been a while since I used gilding flakes and I wondered what a layered flower and leaf would look like using different colors of flakes. I think it gives an elegant feel to the card. I also was reminded why I don't used them very often, I had small particles of flakes everywhere in my craft room.
I took three quarter sheets of Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and covered it with double-sided adhesive then added bronze, silver, and gold flakes to each. Later I created one more sheet of gold for the sentiment.
The bottom layer of the flowers and leaves were cut from the bronze gilded flakes. The top layer was cut using the top layer of the dies. The center of the flowers were cut from the silver. Each layer was adhered using liquid glue. To add dimension, the bottom layer of the flowers and leaves were cut from black sticky back foam and adhered to the back. The sentiment was cut from both the gold flakes and the black foam.
A panel of black cardstock was cut using the largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Rectangle, which covers the entire front of an A2 cardbase. It was run through the Big Shot with the Stampin' Up 3D Subtle Embossing Folder, which add a nice linen look to the paper. The flowers, leaves, and sentiment were adhered in place with liquid glue. The back foam was cut away from any area that overlapped one another for a smooth layered design.
Gold and bronze sequins were scattered around the card front and silver stickles were added to the centers, in keeping with the colors used for the design. I used the card for a birthday, but it could easily be used as a wedding card.
