christmas shimmer

I have had so much fun experimenting with the new Shimmer Paint from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini catalogue.
To obtain the shimmery look on these trees, I mixed a couple of drops of Old Olive re-inker with a drop or two of Shimmer Paint. Using a sponge dauber I applied the mixture to the Patterned Pines stamp and then stamped it onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Set it aside as it will take a few moments to dry.
Prepare the rest of your card while you are waiting.
8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Real Red card stock, scored at 4 1/4"for your card base.
3" x 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock,(for stamping).
4" x 5 1/4" piece of Merry Moments designer paper.
4 1/4" x 1" Old Olive card stock, punched with the Scallop Edge border punch.
Red Gingham ribbon.
The greeting I chose is from the Snow Swirled stamp set.

all materials are from Stampin' Up! and available in my online store or by emailing me directly.
My thanks to Andrea Walford for her tutorials using Shimmer Paint.
Only 9 weeks left until Christmas!
