Gilded Christmas Trees

Today I am sharing another Christmas card, this time using gilding flakes.
I started by die cutting the three trees using card that I had covered with gilding flakes.
Next I glued the trees onto the black punched tags, which I then mounted onto gold
mirror card using 3D foam pads and carefully cut around to make a frame.
Lastly I added the ribbon and dotted the tags with a gold metallic pen.

The Products I have used are:-
Indiogo Blu Gilding Flakes - Yorkshire Dales
Fiskars Tag Punch
Tattered Lace Mini Die - Seasons Greetings
Set of 3 Christmas Tree Dies - Purchased from eBay
EK Success Punch - Tiny Circle
Hougie Board
