Golden Sun Flamingo

My Favorite Things has started another session of Camp Create. Last session looked fun, so I definitely want to participate this week!

The first challenge is Fantastic Foiling. The challenge was to use something shiny on your card.

To be honest I haven’t had much luck with foiling, so I went a different route with this card:

I used a gold liquid leaf to add highlights to my flamingo (hence the “golden sun” in the post title). I also die cut the sentiment from gold foil paper.

The card needed just a bit of something else but I didn’t want to compete with the gold, so I added some die-cut leaf embossings.

I’ve earned a badge!


Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. I think your card is beautiful! The gold leaf is a beautiful subtle touch and I love the white embossing. I have also struggled with foiling until I bought the Deco Foil Toner sheets. They are so easy to die cut, they are peel and stick but they are also a bit pricey. I then run it through a laminator and voila!
