A Shimmery Wish with Melissa

Hey there Shimmerz fans! I'm here today with a fun, shimmery card made using some ordinary cardboard. I love the look of cardboard on cards, layouts and anything crafty. It gives a great texture to things. And then add some Shimmerz products to it and it looks amazing!

I used several different Shimmerz Products for this card.

                                                                   ~ Baby's Breath Shimmeringz
                                                                   ~ Cotton Candy and Truffle Spritz
                                                                   ~ Spun Sugar and Barely Blue Dazzlerz

First, cut a piece of cardboard from a box to the size you would like. Then carefully tear off the top layer of paper exposing the "inside" of the cardboard. I then spread some Spun Sugar and Barely Blue Dazzlerz randomly over the cardboard using a palette knife.

Then while still wet, I tore up some pieces of vintage print paper and added it to the cardboard. I then sprayed the book print lightly with some Truffle Spritz to give it an aged look.

Next, using some plain white Rose flowers, I generously sprayed them with some Cotton Candy Spritz.

Next, I sprayed them with the Truffle Spritz to give them an aged look as well.

I then embellished the cardboard and added it to my card base. I also cut out a cardboard heart and "Shimmered" it up the same way as the main panel using the Spun Sugar and Barely Blue Dazzlerz.

When finished, I sprayed the entire card with some Baby's Breath Shimmeringz to give it its final shimmery look!

If you've never used Shimmerz before, you should really give them a try! There are so many amazing different products to try. They are wonderful for all types of crafting and projects! :) On your next Shimmerz order, just mention my name, Melissa B in the "Notes to Merchant" section in the Paypal Checkout and you will receive a FREE Shimmerz Paints Product in your order! ;)

I hope you have a shimmery day!!
