Gilded Ornaments

I love it when a bunch of challenges all come up at the same time and work out for one card!!

First up is Happy Little Stampers November CAS challenge "Gilding".  I used gold gilding flakes on the ornaments.  And kept the card CAS by putting them directly on the cardbase with no extra layers.

Then there Merry Monday's "Red and Gold" challenge.  I decided to use a red cardbase to go with my gold ornaments and sentiment.

And finally SCS's Ways to Use It challenge "Gold Mediums".  The gilding flakes are my gold medium.

I find gilding flakes really tricky to use most of the time, but they are easy on a die cut with a layer of double-sided tape on it - still make a mess though and fly around everywhere!

I put sookwang tape over some scrap white cs and die cut the three ornaments. I removed the top layer of the tape and rubbed gold gilding flakes into the tape. I popped them up on foam tape, added gold cord to hang them with, and die cut a gold sentiment.

Thanks for looking and come and join us at some of these challenges!
