Have you checked out Shimmer Paint? So much fun!

Today's card features a few new products from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue -  the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies, Blizzard Thinlits Die, Shimmer Paint and Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper. I had an idea for a card to use up some of the snowflakes I had cut out for a class using the Blizzard Thinlits Die and it gradually grew into this.

I like how it turned out in the end :). Do you ever had cards where the final product is nothing like you planned?

For this card I cut out the "Merry" in Crumb Cake cardstock and then painted it using a dry Aqua Painter with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.  I also painted the snowflakes that I cut out from Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper.  Check out the shimmer!

I love how this looks!

I adhered a piece of Vellum Cardstock over the Designer Series Paper and lightly painted it with Shimmer Paint.  You need to paint it very lightly so as not to saturate the paper.  Let it dry and then adhere in a couple of places with Glue Dots.  If you adhere it in places where you will put something over top of the Glue Dots, you will not be able to see the adhesive.

Everything I used on this card is available in my Online Store.  You can check out the list of supplies below.

When you place a $50 order (before shipping and taxes) using the Host Code NTBM9H3J, I'll send you four cards and instructions by mail as a thank you.  If your order is over $200, please do not use the Hostess Code as you'll qualify for Stampin' Rewards, but I'll still send you the 4 free cards!
