Friday is already here and time to share my 5th card of this fun week featuring Penny Black.

Today I have a very elegant looking card with a gold foiling technique that is so quick!


I used the “burst of blooms” stamp set and I covered up mu panel. I also made sure to do some masking for a clean finish. I colored everything with my alcohol markers.


To add that extra something I did some foiling. I applied glue in different parts of my image by using the Nuvo glue pen. It is easy to use and really quick. Then I let it dry which turns that glue into a sticky area where foiling stays on top. You can see me demonstrate this in the video.


To finish it off I matted my panel with gold cardstock and I also embossed my sentiment in gold. And to bring everything together I also tied a bow with golden thread.

  1. Seriously Vicky, I SO wish this was not your last day of featuring Penny Black products! These were all so great and today’s card is just an absolute STUNNER! I LOVE Penny Black and must check there more often as they really do have great images! (There are so many wonderful stamp companies to keep up with… almost too many! LOL)

  2. Beautiful cards you make. I love how you demonstrate different products in you videos and show how to use them.

  3. Hi Vicky, Love the gold on the flowers, that sentiment is lovely, your card is gorgeous, TFS, Cheers Anna.

  4. Hi Vicky
    Another beautiful elegant card!! Was intrigued that you only had to use glue for the gold foiling instead of heat. Is this special foil paper??? Only wish you were making a card everyday,!!! Thank you for this lovely series.

  5. Thankyou Vicky…beautiful cards all week…absolutely love the elegance of this last one….I can’t wait to get my Big Shot & diss etc to give them a go…. ☺

  6. Love the gold accents! It really does come out much shinier than embossing powder. Thanks for all the Penny Black videos. I don’t do Facebook but I’ve enjoyed all the extra Vicki videos!

  7. Beautiful card, love all the gold accents visited penny black and left the message would love to win some of their stamps

  8. Beautiful card. Penny Black has such great floral designs and I love the way you covered the whole panel with the flowers. Thanks, too, for the tip about the Nuvo glue pen.

  9. Vicky, all 5-Penny Black cards this week were so beautiful, but this last one takes the cake… it was raised on such a different level! Your techniques, absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

  10. Great card!! I’m a little sad it’s over though.. I’ve really enjoyed watching these videos every day.. hehe Any chance you’ll be doing an art journal page soon? ^_^ Thanks so much for sharing. ???

  11. I loved the video and the card. A simple way to add glitz, and I didn’t know you could use a heat gun to dry the Nuvo glue. Thought it had to air dry, so thanks for that tip, too.

  12. Vicky, I love this card and want to make one for a friend’s birthday. What is the width of the flower panel?

    1. I usually eyeball it, so I don’t have measurements for you. Plus I have already given this card away. But, make it as big as your sentiment allows. This is what will determine the width.

  13. So glad I found this demonstration! You are so very talented and I do so admire Penny Black products! Great demonstration…will try this immediately!
