Art Gallery Birthday Card

I've had the Art Gallery stamp set since the release of the mini catalogue but am only now starting to use it. In fact I'd bought the whole suite, the paper is beautiful.

Yesterday was a friend's birthday. A girly girl so flowers were the perfect images. This set allows you to build up the flowers with two layers. I chose to do the top layer on my flower with Gilded Leafing Embellishment. I kept the rest of the card in plain white so that the flower catches your eye.

The gilded Leafing is so popular that it's on backorder at present It comes in a pot of a respectable size but boy, when you open the lid that stuff goes on forever! The post is crammed with leafing. You need to take care when opening as it's lighter than a feather and will fly away. I usually leave the craft room with speckles of leafing on me.
The embossing folder is called Seabed 3D and if you haven't spotted it then it really is worth a good look. It's beautifully detailed and will look good on so many projects. You can find it as part of the Whale of a Time suite, although it is available on it's own.
The frame image on my card is created using the Stitched Rectangle dies. The ribbon is retired, from my stash. The sentiment ifs from the Art Gallery stamp set and the die cut shape it's on is from the coordinating dies.

I'd love to see your projects using the Gilded Leafing, it's such fun to use! I plan to use it in an upcoming claa - my ladies will love it!
