Memory Box "Pippi Butterfly" gilded birthday card

I recently watched a youtube video on using gilding flakes by Christine Stokes.  As I have some flakes in my stash, I decided to give it a try.  Here's the link to the video.

I had two pots of Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes (Summer Meadow - gold and Silver Dream) both pots have varigated colours in them.  I used two widths of double sided sticky tape for the vertical line, then die cut into a square using a die with a decorative edge.

I used two Memory Box dies "Pippi Butterfly - 98508" and "Isabella Butterfly - 98507).  First cutting in white card and then cutting a double sided sticky sheet and applying the flakes to one of the sticky surfaces.

I used Wow! Rich Gold embossing powder, heat set, for the Waffle Flower sentiment which is part of their "Essential Sentiments" stamp set.


  1. A wonderful way to use gilding flakes Sam

  2. Sam loved what you made and your attempt was 100% perfect... thanks for sharing in my group and using the ytube I added...xx

  3. I do have some remnants of gilding flakes in a box but no proper glue to fix them, but this looks like a great alternative with the double sided tape and the sticky sheets Sam, so will definitely give this a try. The card looks so pretty with the butterflies and the two different widths of vertical strips. x

    1. Thanks Pat, give it a go. It's super easy to achieve a good look x
