"Snow" Covered Trees

Hello there!  Thanks for joining me today!  Today I want to share a technique that I recently learned from my friend and teammate, Sherry.


Notice the snow on the trees?  It's puffy!  


To make the puffy snow, mix equal parts of shaving cream and Elmer's School Glue (about 2 tablespoons of each).  Then use a small paint brush to apply it to the trees.  As it dries, it puffs up!  You could also add some Dazzling Details or other glitter to the mixture to give it some sparkle.  How fun is this?!!?

My Stamp Club members will get to make this card tonight!  A new round of Stamp Club begins soon.  Want to join?  Contact me to be put on the waiting list.  I'll be looking for new members in January!
