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.
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.
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.
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.
The explosion box is inspired by Paper Pixie. It is a cute addition to the cards created.
All the products used for tonight’s alternative to gold foil cards are available by clicking the photo’s below or heading to my online store.
