Kintsugi Inspired card using Gilded Leafing

Hello, I hope you are well.

Have you heard of Kintsugi? It’s an ancient Japanese method of repairing broken pottery that roughly translates as golden joinery. The idea is that when something is broken you make it more beautiful and precious than it was before. I love that idea! So I decided to make a card inspired by Kintsugi…

I’ve made a video to show you how you can recreate this card, just click on the image below to watch it…

To make this card you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Evening Evergreen card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm, for the base
  • Basic White card measuring 10 x 14 cm for the insert
  • A piece of 2021-2023 6″ x 6″ designer series paper, trimmed down to at least 14.5 x 10.5 cm
  • Tear & Tape adhesive
  • Gilded Leafing
  • Scraps of Basic White & Evening Evergreen card for a sentiment

I’ve listed all of the products I used below and you can click on any of the links to go straight to that item in my online Stampin’ Up! shop.

Here’s a close up of the golden repair…

I love the texture you get with this technique.

And here’s my original card alongside the one I made in my video…

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these cards and will be tempted to give it a try.
