Fun Card ...

Hi Everybody,

This is not a new technique it has been around for many many years.

It is one way of adding a marble effect to your card but a lot cheaper than the marbling kits that are on the market

I have done tutorials on using it in the past but this is bringing it up to date with some added extras

I have not used any special card either just the  White Linen effect one I use all the time for my bases from the Papermill Direct






It looks very effective and is one way to get your background to match the rest of your card ... ideal when you are searching for a paper that will go with your design


I have added in a pearly hat pin to this card and the diamanté "Bling" is from Want2Scrap

So this is the shaving foam technique in a short video format and I hope you will enjoy it as much as you have told me you are enjoying the others that I have added.

Thank you for the many comments,  emails and Facebook messages I get it is much appreciated and I hope you will give this fun technique a try ... even if it is messy

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  15. This is stunning, and the video is so helpful for explaining this technique. I haven't tried it myself, but I am going to now that I've seen how it's done! I especially like the pearl spray that you used to sparkle it afterwards. Thank you. BethAnn M.

  29. Christina,
    Who would think that out of that gooey mess you could create such beauty. Fantastic cards, love the marblized effect, and the added sparkle. Great job on the video, and the cards.

  30. Love your card. We do this technique when teaching card classes for kiddos. I am a new subscriber. Do you make your own hatpins? If so, have you done a tutorial on how to make them? I love the look of hatpins and would love to learn how to make my own. Thank you.

  31. Christina, I have never used the shaving foam technique, always thought it would be too messy, but you have shown that it is not and what a beautiful effect you get. I will definitely give this a go. Love the colour you chose for this card and of course another of your gorgeous hat pins. Sue.
