Are you ready for another Gilded Leafing technique? This time, we will step it up a notch. In my previous card, I showed you two ways to use our new “pot of gold”. Well, if a little of that golden goodness could create a beautiful card, just think what even more can do. Well, here you go!

The Simply Succulents bundle contains not only a fantastic stamp set, but an over the top die set as well.  This card required minimal supplies, but packs the WOW factor.

I love the aged look of the gilded leafing, almost like tarnished glass. Because I cut the die with that rich Blackberry Bliss cardstock, it really popped and made a statement.

I know, you’re asking yourself,  how did she do that. Well, it was very easy. I backed a mat of Very Vanilla cardstock with our Adhesive Sheet. That’s the one trick you must keep in mind when using the Gilded Leafing. You have to have something for it to stick to.

Next, making the sentiment special, was important to me. I’ve got a new little ribbon tip I’ll be sharing in my video tutorial. Hope you like it.
