Inspired by....Gold Foiling Trends

Gold Foiled Jar and Card designed by Jenny Pearce ©

With gold foiling becoming popular in paper crafting projects and setting the scene for a luxury gold Winter season, I decided to create this elegant gold card and upcycled an old jar with the help of some real gold leaf!

I’m loving the hot trend for all things gold, so I combined the new ‘Die Cuts With a View’ Luxe Suite 12 x 12” foiled card stack with these handmade motifs that I embellished with real gold leaf. I added sparkly flat backed jewels, gold card and sheer mesh fabric, along with bows, ribbons and gold cord to complete the look.

The upcycled jar/ now vase could be used on your festive table this year and the greeting card could be used for a dinner party invitation.

Gold has never been my first choice in the past for crafting with (as I have always liked silver) however when used correctly gold can look elegant, luxurious and sophisticated and add a touch of glam to your home décor and crafts projects.

What’s your favourite choice for craft or home décor projects – gold or silver?
How did you use it in your project?
