One of the Falliday Fest tutorials was a new twist on the shaving cream technique - combining it with the use of a stencil. While I was not too eager to try out a technique that could potentially be quite messy, the fact that SU! does carry stencils right now made me want to give it a try.
I pulled out the stars and hearts stencil from the annual catalogue and gave it a try. I actually made four card fronts, to use all of the shaving cream I had created. I mixed Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo reinkers for a fresh, bright background.
When looked at inspiration to use the created backgrounds, I found the heart and "wishes" die-cut in the Sunshine Sayings Thinlits set, which was perfect. Inspired by the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #216, I added a vellum scallop square die-cut (created with the Layering Squares Framelits) and embossed it with the Boho Chic embossing folder. A gold bow clip and a Peekaboo Peach ruffled ribbon were added as well. Two Designer washi tapes created the border, and I used Gold Foil Paper to die-cut the word, and stamped "Best" over it with Flirty Flamingo ink. Shimmery White cardstock was used for the background.
Finally, a matching envelope was created with the gold foil vellum cardstock we used to carry in last year's catalogue. It'll be nice for the person receiving the card to get a glimpse of it through the envelope.
