Hello again! It’s Kari and today I have a card and a video for you on “Five Ways to Use Gilding Flakes.”

When I first saw that geometric lion stamp in the January HH kit, I just KNEW he needed a golden mane! And what better to create a golden lion mane than with Gilding Flakes?!

Here’s a look at my finished card:

This lion has a sentiment that goes just perfectly: “You are roarsome!” So I white heat embossed that on black to add over the THANKS die cut (from my stash).

Have you ever used Gilding Flakes? They are fun to use, but make sure you don’t have a fan on, OR the A/C isn’t blowing on your workspace, OR you don’t sneeze, OR you don’t breathe….LOL!! Those lightweight little flakes will travel!!

I have a tip video for you on FIVE ways to use Gilding Flakes, and this video also includes the process of this card. Watch it below or on YouTube:


Isn’t that fun? What technique will you try with Gilding Flakes?

Here’s a closer look at that Gilded Lion…I added a bit of Glossy Accents to his nose for some shine.

I hope you enjoyed these projects! I really enjoyed these techniques and I can’t wait to try MY FAVORITE ONE again (hint: it’s the last technique on the video involving water…yes! WATER!)

That’s it for me today. I’ll see you next time!
