Warm Winter Wishes!

It is very chilly here in Idaho this week, definitely mitten weather! Here is another card design that we created at my recent Shimmerz Ed class:


We used a stipple brush with Pixie Dust Blings on Bazzill Swiss Dot white cardstock on the top of the mitten to give it a little texture.


We used Angel Wings Shimmerz on the flowers. Did you know that you can add embossing powder to wet Shimmerz or Spritz and then heat emboss it? Well, now you know! I added clear embossing powder to the wet flowers. I love the way the heat gun curled the edges. Embossing them puts a glossy coating over the shimmer. I purposely left the heat gun on a little too long and burnt the edges for a shabby look.

We stamped a little message inside:


I made up a bunch of these cards and plan on giving them to friends and neighbors with some of these:

If you'd like the recipe for my yummy sugar cookies, I'll post it on my blog for you! Also, I will be giving away two jars of Shimmerz Paints, Candle Light and Green Olive, perfect for your Holiday cards!

Keep warm!
