I’ve got a fun new floral greeting card with shimmer paint to share today. The First Frost bundle is so elegant! This handmade card can be used for several occasions, not just Christmas!
The first photo doesn’t do the greeting card justice since you can’t see the Frost White Shimmer paint I used! Super Easy card to make I promise!
Frost White Shimmer Paint is so fun to use with Rubbing Alcohol in one of the Stampin’ Up! Spritzers! Add subtle shimmer and shine. Sponge on stamps, paint accents on cards, or stamp and heat-set on fabric.
There are three other colors available in the 2018 Holiday Catalog too…Bright Copper, Vegas Gold and Champagne! Ask me why I have not gotten the Copper one since I am addicted to Copper everything else?!!! Adding it to my next order!
The first time I spritzed it I felt I could see the globs of Shimmer Paint so I tested a few different ways to spray it. On this card video tutorial you will see my tips & tricks!
Can you see the difference? More subtle and not so globby (is that even a word???)
Using Vellum gave it even more of a Frosty look as you can see by the angle photo below!
