Today's card is very simple to make but looks very difficult. I ran a piece of black cardstock through the Ecstasy Craft's Leaves embossing folder which gave a really high embossing. Then I used a glue pen to wet the tops of all the embossed areas and rubbed on some Mulled Wine gilding flakes after the glue was tacky but not still real wet.
I found that any kind of glue pen works with these gilding flakes. I've also found that, for me, the pad on a distress ink blending tool works well for buffing the excess flakes. I remove the pad from the wooden handle and use the blue side for dry buffing and the white side if I need to spread some glue around to a larger area.
