Mother’s Day Card using homemade shimmer spritz

Mother's Day cardIf I were not such a procrastinator, this is the card I would have sent my daughters and DIL for Mother's Day. This is one of the five cards we made last Sunday at our Card Buffet. You should have been there!!!

We first used the Delicate Doilies Sizzlit and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine to cut out a mask from Whisper White card stock. We adhered it to another piece of Whisper White card stock using removable adhesive…shhh…it was the retired Dotto. Then we mixed up homemade shimmer spritz in one of the Stampin' Spritzers. I filled up the spritzer about 3/4 full with rubbing alcohol, added about 15 drops of Calypso Coral refill and maybe 5 drops of the retiring Frost White Shimmer paint. Mix it up well and spray it over the doily mask. Save the mask for another card. I'll show you what we did with it tomorrow. We also sprayed the floral trim flowers with the shimmer spritz to color them. The leaves are the leaves on the Bird Builder punch. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. A bow from gumball green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon finishes off the card. I wish the camera could pick up all the shimmer.

It is too late to order these supplies to make a Mother's Day card but by changing out the greeting, this would be a beautiful birthday card or thinking of you card. To order the supplies, just click on the item names or visit my online store.
