Hi everyone, I’m back to share my card using the Taylored Expression Boards on Pinterest as my inspiration! It was hard to choose as there are so many gorgeous projects to choose from. However, I ended up picking THIS card from the super sweet and talented Taylor. The gold foiling is so beautiful, it was easy to be inspired by her card…here’s a peek at her gorgeous card:
For my card I used Just A Note dies and used Mega-Flake in Lancaster Rose for my foiling. Can I say WOW! And what an amazing product! This technique is a little messy (note to self, turn off ceiling fan) but the results are so worth it. I’ll share a few tips below on how I was able to make this work with smaller dies. The sentiment is from Rock My World…a perfect combination with the dies. I added the hearts and stars from Stamp of Approval and I was on my way to creating my card.
Mega-Flake in Lancaster Rose has so many gorgeous colors in it…I love the orange and red with the gold in this mix.
To do smaller pieces or dies that are intricate, I put double sided tape on some card stock. I peeled off protective layer and put the gold flakes on top of the sticky part.
Once you have the adhesive covered with the flakes, I gently “scrubbed” in a circular motion using Scoochy Foam. Here is a larger piece I used that shows the flakes, before and after the Scoochy Foam. The results are stunning!
Back to my smaller piece. 🙂
Once your piece is smoothed out, just place your die on top of the foiled piece and run it through your die cutter.
Cuts like buttah!
It’s hard to truly capture how pretty this is in person…I’ll be using this technique for a few more projects!
