Happy Thursday! Where did this week go? It seems we just spent a Thursday night together. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. After creating a few cards this morning, I finally came up with a few projects for tonight’s live. I will be creating cards using an alternative to gold foil. When you have many cards to create, it can get a bit expensive using gold foil. So here is what I did in place of using gold foil. Inspiration for tonight’s projects came from the Paper Pixie and the Songbird Stamper.

Art Gallery Stamp set and an alternative to gold foil.

My alternative to gold foil is using the gilded leafing. There are many ways to apply the gilded leafing and I will show you a couple of ways to use it tonight.

Color Palette

Misty Moonlight and Night of Navy are a beautiful when paired with a technique using an alternative to gold foil.
Just a bit of gold around the center image is a technique that will be shown as an alternative to gold foil.
Even added this alternative to gold foil to the inside of the card.

A quick and easy way to create a gold frame with the gilded leafing is going to shown tonight. I also added gold to the layer on the flower on the inside of the card.

There are a few techniques as my alternative to gold foil on the front of this card.
This alternative to gold foil shimmers and shines on the front of this card.
Pulled in some the the Harvest Meadow dsp and some gold trim for the inside of this card.

The technique used on the first card was used on the second card. There is an additional technique using the gilded leaf on this card. I added the designer series paper to the inside. It will release with the Holiday Catalog.

A sweet little explosion box, inspired by Paper Pixie is a cute addition for the cards tonight.
Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight and Harvest Meadow dsp are the highlight of this project.
No alternative to gold on this project.  But it was created to showcase the Harvest Meadow dsp.

The explosion box is inspired by Paper Pixie. It is a cute addition to the cards created.
