Why You Need the Stampin’ Up!® Flower Market Die: Over-the-top Gilded Leafing Background Technique


Looking for ‘over the top’ card for a special occasion? This card has it all – Gilded Leafing (and special how-to’s with a Blending Brushes tip), die cut backgrounds with the stand-alone Flower Market die, featured images with the Brilliant Wings Butterfly Dies, and let’s not forget the Messages Die – perfect for cutting a variety of special shapes for your perfect greeting.


Closed, the Z Fold Card looks like a normal card. But open it to the side and the card ‘front’ is still visible when the card is open. See more Z Fold Cards


I love this layout, but making it special with the Gilded Leafing is what takes today’s card up and over the top of the scale.

Here’s how the Gilded Leafing background technique works:


Directions for the Gilded Leafing Die Cut Background Technique:

  1. Cut Basic Black cardstock layer twice – both pieces 3 3/4″ x 5″
  2. Die cut the top layer of Basic Black cardstock with the Flower Market Die (on sale through Nov 18) and set aside
  3. Cut a 3 3/4″ x 5″ section of Adhesive Sheet (thin adhesive trapped between two paper backing layers) and press onto full Basic Black layer
  4. Press die cut layer down onto adhsesive
  5. Press Gilded Leafing into the adhesive and brush away excess with a Blending Brush (video tutorial includes helpful tips)

See? Not too difficult – but incredibly striking!


Finish off the focal point with a butterfly from the Brilliant Wings Dies (also on sale through November 18) and a message from the Messages Die (sale, too!!).
