Shimmer this Winter

This is a shimmer and shine card that I cased (Copy and Share Everything) from Frenchie's Hawaii Christmas card.  I changed the colors up and turned it into a winter birthday card for my December classes.

Stamp Sets:  Festival of Trees, Happy Scenes

Colors:  Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Pool Party

How the card appears when folded flat.  The tree punch tree is applied with a Stampin' Dimensional.  

An Aqua Painter was used to apply the accent to the lake and mountain side.

Materials: Washi Tape, Tree, and Word Window Punches; Silver Glitter, Circles Collection Framelits, Dauber, Aqua Painter, Bone Folder, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Stampin' Dimensionals (pop dots)

Trees were stamped on the very bottom of the card and sometimes stamped twice (or stamped off) for a lighter variation.

Water was mixed with Tombow glue and the glue flicked onto the Circle and Tree Punch before the Silver Glitter was applied.  This technique was shown at the 2015 Stampin' Up! Convention.

Remember this Festival of Trees set is available in the Stampin' Up! big catalog on page 71.  It can be used for a lot more than Christmas.
