November stash challenge

It’s the last week of November and also my last week for hosting the challenges over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week I’ve chosen a stash challenge, to use gilding flakes or foil…

I used two different colours of gilding flakes by Clarity Stamp and two different techniques to add them to my card …

It was hard to capture the colours and shine on camera – it’s been a really dark day here, but I found if I angled the card a little, you could at least see the different colours a little better.

I used flitter glue by Indigo Blu to stamp the tree image and sentiment onto whisper white card and left it to go tacky before adding the gilding flakes…

I burnished the gilding with a scoochy pad, which really brought out the pattern. For the mat layer, I added sticky strip to the edges of a piece of card and added the flakes in the same way as before…

I just love the colours in the variegated gold and copper flakes – they are so beautiful in real life.

I hope you like my card for this week and you are inspired to have a go yourself. If you do, please share it with us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
