305- Shiny Snowman Card

The goal of this card was shine shine shine! I used the foil technique in my big shot, I painted the circles on the white cardstock with shimmer paint and then topped it off with the rhinestone brads

I actually found it quite difficult to work with the tin foil. It is really hard to not crinkle it and it tends to rip when you put it in the papercutter. I can acknowledge that I probably need more patience but I was getting really frustrated. To cut it without ripping I found it easiest to put the blade in the middle of the sheet then cut outwards.

My new obsession with shimmer paint knows no bounds- it is amazing! I adore the shine of it- and it is so easy to use- it goes on nice and then so you don't have to use a lot of it.
