Here are the other four cards I mentioned in the last post. I've been wanting to try out the metal leafing ever since I saw Deborah's (Gram-pea's) fabulous cards. You should have seen Nora and me trying to do this for the first time. We had instructions for heating the glue, but we had a glue pad that didn't require heat. In our excitement, we started the process before reading all of the directions. I have seen people use metal leafing and have tons left over to save for another time. Not us. We had tiny shavings and dust left. We saved it anyway.

Note: The Mona Lisa Leaf Sealer slightly darkens and color of the cardstock. It also adds a shine to it. That's why I used glossy black cardtock on the second card. Next time, I'll probably spray the card at the same time as the image so the cardstocks will match.
I wish you could see how the metal leaf glows IRL.
