Gilding flakes birthday card

This is DH's birthday card.  I stamped the tree image (Hero arts) with Indigo Blu Flitterglu then used IB gilding flakes in their 'Yorkshire Dales' colour mix.  Well, he is a Yorkshireman :-)

Trouble is, the gilded image is so hard to photograph!  This is the SAME CARD:

See what I mean?

I die-cut round the image with nesties Labels One in the largest size, then made a card blank from the smallest size in the Grand Labels One set.  I also tried gilding the edges of the topper, I think it works quite well, though it was a little fiddly :-)

He liked it!


  1. Oooh this is lovely, it would make a great C-card as well.

  2. Thats a Gorgeous card !! I love it.
