I didn’t have a clue what to make, for a Swap, for this year’s Regional event. Over the past 2 years, I have made little cards & bookmarks – this year was I after something different.
I actually made a card front. Thanks to be my new friend – Bertie – The Big Shot (that name just popped into my head) – made my job alot easier.
I used the Vintage Wallpaper &/or Polka Dot Embossing Folders, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Basic Pearls, Glossy Cardstock, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Stampin’ Pastels, Elegant Eggplant & Very Vanilla cardstock – & Because I Care Stamp Set. Phew!
There’s the outcome!
The technique I used was called Shimmery Pastels.
Here is what you do:-
With your glossy cardstock, dab some (already shaken) shimmer paint over the glossy cardstock, using Glad Wrap. To quicken up the process – use your Heat Tool to dry it. Then using a dauber or sponge, dab into your Pastels & then onto the shimmery glossy cardstock.
The card definitely looks better in real life.
Thanks for visiting!
