Rooted In Nature Gold Embossed Thank You Card

Hey peaches! I have a lovely card to share with you today that uses a fun technique. It's not new to me but I'd thought I'd share it again since it has been while and there may be a few of you who haven't seen/tried it before.

This technique has a sort of a gilding effect. I love it's subtle look with just the right amount of shine. In my card today I will be featuring the Rooted In Nature Bundle. I think this set will highlight this technique beautifully. To begin though, I'll start by explaining how I built up my layers and then I'll show you the technique at the end.

For my embossed circle layer I used Crumb Cake Cardstock. I used my Big Shot and the brand new Embossing Mats, along with the leaf die from the set, to create the subtle embossed background on the circle. I just love the look of this! Next, stamped a few leaves in Old Olive Ink and cut them out to be layered behind the circle layer.

Now for the gilded embossing technique. To achieve this look I took the tree stamp from the set and stamped in Old Olive Ink. I gave it about two seconds to start to dry before sprinkling Gold Embossing Powder onto it. The areas of stamped ink that were still wet will grab a hold of the powder while the dry ink will not. You then melt the powder and you are left with a really cool effect. I did this same technique with some of the leaves layered behind the circle. You can experiment with the timing and get a more concentrated gilding effect and a lesser one, depending on how long you wait to add your powder. I definitely recommend trying it for yourself.

To finish off my card, I dded some of those gorgeous new Leaves Trinkets. Thanks so much for stopping by! I 'll see you next post!
