Day 6 of the 30 Days of Christmas: Glittery Stenciled Gilding Flakes Pinecone

Gilding Flakes are one of the most beautiful mediums to add to  your paper crafting projects due to their shiny goodness.  Combine flakes with glitter, and suddenly you have a gorgeous shimmery end product. That is what we are doing today.

Many people don't care to use either glitter OR gilding flakes because of the  potential mess. I am here to tell you that you don't have to have it be messy! Watch the video below to see how to control the mess without sacrificing the beauty of the project.

Note that I finished my piece as a Christmas card - because at Technique Junkies, October 15 through November 13th are the 30 days of Christmas. Every day during that time period, check in with us on the Technique Junkies Design Team blog for inspirational Christmas cards.  Additionally, all of the Christmas stamps on the Technique Junkies site are 20% off through November 13th! Simply add any stamp from the Christmas Category and the stamps will be automatically discounted at checkout.

Here are the stamps and Stencil I used on the finished card today:

I hope you are a little inkspired by today's issue. See you next week!
