The shine on this card is created by rubbing Pearl Moon Metallic gilding wax on top of the inked and embossed paper. Gilding Wax comes in container that allows you to rub a finger across the top of the wax then onto your cardstock, lace and other materials to highlight texture or add shine.

To make my card, I rubbed a variety of blending inks on a piece of white cardstock, embossed the cardstock with the embossing folder in my Cuttlebug, then rubbed on the gilding wax. Gilding wax goes on dry so then I immediately adhered the two feathers and the computer generated word "happy".
