This done by stamping with Staz-on ink on a clear transparency and then when it's dry, run it through the Xyron to add sticky to the back of it. Then you drop leafing foil flakes on the sticky and rub it in until the whole thing is covered. I think I got mine years ago from Auntie Amy's booth at a convention, but I don't see it on her site now. If you do a google search for "leafing foil flakes" you get some places to buy, including this one.
Here's a closer look. Isn't it just fabulous and rich looking? Once it's covered in foil it is easily layered and makes a gorgeous card.
These are copper brads that were in my stash being hoarded. They make the perfect addition to this card.
And here's the inside. Pretty simple but it matches.
I hope you enjoyed this one. I've been playing around a lot lately with "old" techniques and making them new again. I've also been trying to actually use some of the beautiful papers and embellishments that I've been hoarding for years. It's very liberating actually! So stay tuned... there's lots of "what's old is new again" coming!
Have a great day!
