Sense of Time shaving cream card...

This square white card uses a smaller square of Bella Birds designer paper (ticket corner punch on all four corners), a Bordering Blue scallop (Big Shot die, the largest scallop one), and a fun technique using shaving cream.

For the Shaving Cream Technique, you spray shaving cream on a paper plate and smooth it out with a knife or your bone folder. Drop a few drops of a couple reinkers on top and mix it around to create any pattern you like. Then you take glossy card stock and push it glossy-side down into the mix. Peel it up at the corner and scrape off the shaving cream. I use a paper towel to wipe off the excess. Once it's dry, you can stamp your image on top and finish your card.

This card uses the Occasions Mini stamp set Sense of Time. I used Pink Pirouette and Bordering Blue reinkers. It's subtle, but very pretty in person. The card is finished with a knot of pink taffeta ribbon.
