Gilding Flakes and die cutting

 The item trending right now seems to be Gilding flakes, they are coming into most craft stores in various guises.  I have some bags of flakes I bought years ago for gilding mirror's and for home furnishing project's.  So I thought I would use some for my cards today.

I use Zig memory pens as my" size", the type that goes on blue when adhesive and then clear when removable.  It makes a perfect "grab" for flakes and takes seconds to be ready to use.  Perfect for Miss Impatient here :-)
The flowers are from a pack of Tim Holtz Grungeboard pre-cut die shapes, gilded.
 Die's used are a mix of, Marianne, Spellbinders, Cheery Lyn etc etc

To Gild:
Coat with Zig glue
Wait for a few minutes for the glue to go clear
Rub on the flakes and use a soft brush to burnish and remove any excess.  Save this for using again.  Beware don't cough or breathe too heavy it goes

Sizzix border die and hand-painted topper done with H2O's and one of my organza flowers (Tutorial for thee in a previous post)

I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the border and sanded it.  I love the mica sheen you get from the Twinkling H2O paints

Cut the frame twice and cut the background one in half to create a shadow effect
