I think I'm hooked on gilding flakes since I find myself using them on all my cards lately.
To start off making this card, I first dry embossed a piece of heavy white cardstock using the Ecstasy Crafts Dazzling Sunburst EF. Then I adhered pieces of 1/8" double sided tape to the embossed lines in the middle of each ray and rubbed on some Golden Jewels gilding flakes.
Next I painted on some diluted Broken China distress ink between each of the rays, cut out the pinprick circle and adhered some gilding flakes for the sun, then cut out the waves and sailboat.
All of the products I used to make this card are available at Ecstasy Crafts.
