Technique Focus

Never be afraid to try something new. You may even discover something brilliant—just as our concept artist did when she added Gilded Leafing to our Balmy Blue & White 1/2″ (1.3 cm) Variegated Ribbon! 

Look difficult? It’s not! Simply apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the ribbon using the broad tip, then press the golden flakes into the ribbon. Tip: The glue will soak through the ribbon, so (using your fingers) press flakes into both sides. You’ll need to add a few layers of flakes to achieve the effect pictured here. You will love the result! 

For the card front, use heat embossing and Blending Brushes for adding ink and achieving this look. 

We think this is truly a stunning card—and an elegant technique to add to your crafting repertoire! It’s perfect for fancy, formal occasions—or maybe just to let someone know you think they’re “golden.”
