Luxury and Rustic...
I wanted to share this card today which I feel mixes the luxury of Gold Leaf with the whimsy of fake snow in this shaker card.
I started this card by coating a piece of crd with the Crafts Too double sided adhesive sheets. Because of the grid lines on the reverse of the adhesive sheet I could cut just the amount needed for the card which was 5 3/4' X 5 3/4". I then added a sheet of gold leaf using a further sheet to ensure all areas were covered.
Next I embossed this card however I used the folder in reverse to give me a debossed look, this works perfectly with the gold leaf leaving the surface with the smooth true gold look.
To finish I added a further tree on the front and used a piece of soft gold card embossed with the Merry Christmas section of the Tree of Hearts embossing folder ( also from my new range)
