Today is the start of a new challenge over at the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge. This month it's all about gilding. We also have a guest designer that you should totally check out--thanks for joining us, Karen (Made by Meadie)!
With my card I used iCraft Deco Foil to gild the sentiment. I experimented, a lot, and found the best method for me and a die with thin lines was to apply the foil to the foam adhesive first then die cut the sentiment and leave it in the die. Yes, leave it there. I already knew where I wanted it to go so I peeled off the remaining protective liner and placed the die right on the card. A little press and I removed the die with no problem and had a shiny happy sentiment. Voila!
