Baja Flurry Swap

Here is my last swap creation that for some reason I haven't posted yet! I need some sort of organizational therapy-I can't seem to get or keep it together lately!!! Anyway, the card!

I was very rushed for time (imagine that!!) so this is a very easy to reproduce card!! Perfect for Holiday cards!!

Card base is Not Quite Navy. The background is Baja Breeze that I put through the new Northern Flurry Embossing Folder (Love it!!). After embossing, I mixed up some Platinum Shimmer Spray (several drops of Shimmer Paint in 91% Isopropyl Alcohol). Spritz the layer generously.  HINT:  Do this in a well ventilated area if you are doing very many!!! They do dry fast, but you will smell it for awhile!! Another hint:  Only mix the amount you are going to use right away. It does not keep well in the bottle, the paint settles out and solidifies at the bottom.  

While the Shimmer was drying, I stamped the "Peace Love Joy" in Not Quite Navy on Shimmer White CS and punched with the 1-3/4" Circle punch. I layered those on a Brushed Silver Decorative Label punch. I tied a Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon around the Baja layer and added an accent of the new Silver Tinsel Trim.  Rhinestone brads in the center of 3 snowflakes is the final accent. QUICK!!! Seriously, I made 21 of these in less than 3 hours, and that included the time to create the first one!!

Hope you all are having a great weekend! I need to go do a few things outside, then hope to find some stamping time this afternoon and get back on my creative track!!!
