Papertrey Ink: Make It Monday #336 Faux Gilded Leaves

Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday this week is by Laurie Schmidlin. This week, Laurie shows us how to make gilded leaves with embossing powders.  Below is my version of the Faux Gilded Leaves:

It's been a while since I've been able to blog.  I always have every intention to blog more often, but life always gets in the way.  Most of the time, I find myself fortunate just to have enough time to run to my craft room and get some stamping done. I'm delighted to share this card with you today.  I used Laurie's technique but also added some Mica Flakes on my gilded leaves to give them some dimension.  I love this time of the year and the excitement of the upcoming holidays.

The background was created with the Text & Texture: Leaves Stamp Set. It is definitely quickly becoming one of my favorite background stamps, and I am sure it will be versatile to use year round.  The faux gilded leaves were made with Leaf Prints Stamp Set and Leaf Prints Die Collection. I used Altenew rose gold, antique gold, and copper crisp embossing powders and some Stampendous Mica Flakes on the leaves.  I added a translucent maple leaf note on top of the gilded leaves. This came in my Hero Arts kit for this month. I also made some leaf accents from Build a Flower: Rose Stamp Set and added images from Seasonal Borders: Autumn Stamp Set & Stencil.  The sentiment was from Fall Elegance stamp set; unfortunately, this set is a retired Papertrey Ink set and no longer available. I love how this card turned out.

Thanks for stopping in!
