I made a series of this card for a special group of people in my life. Hadn’t yet uploaded any so here is one of them …

PP470 – A Theme Challenge

After choosing the image I wished to use and also the card stock I proceeded to make the background paper. This is my version of a card I saw on Pinterest – and from this person – . I decided it would be fun to try her idea and technique. In her technique, for the cream coloured background I am using, she used a mix of glue and water to create spatters to which she added EB powder and heat set. I tried it but wasn’t happy – I even hand drew a few lines and swirls with the glue but for me the effect wasn’t enough. In the end I looked in my stash to find an old bottle of embossing fluid that I’ve had forever. I dipped a brush into this and spattered it all over the cs. Then I added my favourite EB powder Cosmic Shimmer and heat set the lot. Now I was happy. I actually did this on a full 81/2″ by 11″ sheet so I could cut it up and make multiple cards. Worked perfectly. I had strips of glitter cs left over so I decided to use them as shown and I also cut up some strips of the green to make things match. In later versions I used washi tape for the strips as it was faster and easier. I added the strips as per instructions on video and also added the sentiment panel I had pre-cut and heat embossed. After die cutting the snowman – a GKD stamp – which I had coloured using some Pigma markers I added him on the side. You can’t see the shimmer in the background but in reality the entire cream panel glows.

    1. Thanks Bonnie – I had fun CASEing her and then doing my own take on it. She has some nice ideas on her blog.


  1. Great card, Johanna; I’m sure the shine is awesome. I, too, like that blog. I follow her on YouTube and she makes nice things and easy to follow.

    1. I like her too and follow some of her YouTube videos. I loved this particular idea and was pleased to make it work in my own way.
