Father’s Day Card Tutorial – Drawing Inspiration From Angela Ploegman

Hello everybody! Asia King here and today I am sharing a card that was inspired by a project created by my super talented teammate Angela Ploegman. Angela made this awesome Chic Treat Bag using gold leaf and Adhesive Sheets. I loved the textured shimmer so I wanted to try gold leafing, too! I happened to have some clear acrylic pieces to hand so I thought I would try to apply the gold leaf to an acrylic sheet.

So here’s the result of my efforts and a full tutorial for my card. Let’s begin!

1. Cut several strips of Adhesive Sheets in varying widths. Arrange them loosely on the acrylic sheet to make sure you are happy with the layout.

2. Peel off the yellow backing and apply the adhesive to the acrylic sheet. Take a break between the strips, if required :).

3. Fill in any remaining gaps with MyStik® Permanent Strips for added texture.

4. Remove the white protective sheet from the adhesive and apply gold leafing in sections.

5. Using a metal distressing tool add random tears and scratches for a distressed, worn look.

6. Stamp the music themed background images with black StazOn ink directly onto the acrylic piece and gold leafing.

7. Using your acrylic piece as a guide, trim a piece of black card stock as tall as the acrylic piece and 3/4 inch wider than the acrylic. Score along the card to create a 3/4 inch fold as shown. This will become your card’s insert/base.

To embellish the fold, stamp music notes with clear embossing ink and heat emboss it in gold.

8. Trim the patterned paper to fit within the card base and adhere using MyStik® Permanent Strips.

9. Wrap the fold around the acrylic front and secure it using Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2″.
