Using Gilding Waxes on Embossed Backgrounds

Gilding Wax is such a great way to really bring out the embossing on your cards.  It's very economical in that one tiny little container will last you FOREVER.  It only takes a little wax on a finger rubbed across the embossing to get this shiny look.

Gilding Wax comes in such beautiful colors:

I can't wait to try all the different colors.

For my first card with the "love you" on it, I used the following Ecstasy Crafts products:

Creative Expressions Golden Light Gilding Wax (applied 3 times right after each other to get an extra heavy coating between the embossed areas)

Cosmic Shimmer Specialst Acrylic Glue -(this glue is super strong and dries clear; I use it to adhere things to the paper with gilding wax on it).

DON'T YOU JUST LOVE THE GOLD ON THE EMBOSSED BACKGROUND.....it makes the card so elegant looking in real life.  What a great way to get more use out of your embossing folders.

For the second card,  I used the following products from Ecstasy Crafts:

Thanks for taking a look.  All of these products are available at Ecstasy Crafts.
