CPS -Shimmerz Grow Card

Hi Everyone,
I'm Maggie Lamarre with the Education team. I'm excited to be here with you as we showcase the fun sketch from Card Positioning and the magic of Shimmerz.
Have you been having fun looking at all the awesome tutorials and inspiration so far?
Grab your  cuppa joe and get comfy for a very very short tutorial, so don't blink :)

I'm an advocate for simple cards specially with the Holiday looming so so soon. This year I said to myself I'm going to get organized and get all my cards mailed out by Nov 26th. I'm very proud of myself for starting this early :)



Supplies:

Marks Paper Company English Garden, Making Memories Metal sentiment, Basic Grey Rhinestones, Jenni Bowling Bingo card, Offray ribbon.Tag. Shimmerz Bamboo Leaf, Bed of Roses, Chik-A-Dee, UHU Glue, Gartner studio cardstock.

How to:

1. Spritz all 3 Shimmerz on non-porous surface then drag the tag onto the surface, then redo 2 times, let dry, drag again by smearing any edges that didn't get saturated.
2.Cut the pattern paper 5x3.5 and distress the edges,adhere to the base.






3.Loop ribbon thru the tag and distress the edges, adhere to the pattern paper.





4. Spritz Chik-A-dee onto the bowling card let dry for 2 mtes or use a heat embossing gun.
5.Adhere the rhinestone to the card then add the Sentiment to the bottom.






Voila you are done in less than 7 mtes :)

Here it is again :)





We would luv to hear from you, leave a comment and let us know what some tricks you have used to make creating faster?

Have a fabulous week,
Maggie
