Gilding flakes using a mask

Todays card uses gilding flakes again but with a 6" square template/mask. The only thing to bear in mind is if you are doing the whole template you will use quite a lot of flake. So on this card I did a smaller area of the template and then cut into 4 squares to give the illusion its a bigger piece than it is. I temporary attached the mask to a piece of white card with some masking tape and then using more tape masked an area roughly the size I wanted. Using the flitter glue and cut n dry foam press the glue over the area making sure the glue goes in all the detailed areas. Carefully remove the mask and pop into a bowl of soapy water so it cleans the glue off. Now you can apply the flakes to the sticky areas and using a scrubby sponge take off the excess flakes. I then cut this piece into 4 even squares and matted with black and then using a smaller piece of card stamped the flower stamp slightly off set and applied flake in the usual way.  Its a quick and easy card and a great use for all those masks of any size.
