Check out Hannah Oxberry’s easy-to-follow steps on creating this pretty Gilded Hare Easter Card, and see the full printable instructions and list of essentials, here.

Step One:

Apply a small amount of foiling adhesive directly to your chosen stamp using a sponge. Be sure to pat away the excess before printing the adhesive on to the 5” x 5” kraft cardstock.

Step Two:

Sprinkle gold gilding flakes over the sticky area, fixing them in place before buffing away the excess to leave a smooth and shiny finish.

Step Three:

Once your gilded hare is in place, you can also stamp your sentiment in black ink.  Cover this with clear embossing powder, and heat to produce a high shine finish.

Step Four:

Around the base of the kraft cardstock, tie a length of jute string or ribbon, adding a bow for interest. Mount your cardstock to the 5 ¼” x 5 ¼” white card blank using double sided tape.

Step Five:

You can even create labels and tags using the same steps, to complement your card design!

Top Tip:

  • When using gilding flakes, always open your tub inside a larger tub; this captures any flakes and allows you to easily contain them!
