Stamp Set Showcase Week 20 (5) Lovely As A Tree

Today I have a fab technique for you. I know I have used it a couple of times before, but it is such a fab technique and leaves the room smelling glorious, so I decided to have a go as a Christmas Card.
My colleague, Pippa Jones (Paper Piskies blogspot) first taught this technique and it involves
the cheapest of cheap SHAVING FOAM ... yes, you heard me right ... shaving foam.

so here is todays LOVELY AS A TREE Card and I hope you are ready for a bit of Messy Foam?

You are going to need 6" square (15cms) Whisper White Card Blank
Begin by trimming a piece of Black Cardstock to 14.5 cms x 14.5 cms
Create an Aperture in the centre of the Black cardstock using one of the Window Framelits
Select the next  two largest Window Framelits and place the two framelits onto the magnetic platform (with the usual sandwich of cutting plates or Tab 1 of your Big Shot, placing the smaller framelit inside the other, and die cut using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to create a sparkling frame for the aperture.

No2 trim two pieces of glossy photo paper to 12cms x 12 cms.
Place one piece of glossy paper face up on a piece of Grid Paper of a few sheets of Kitchen Towel.
Spray a large blob of the cheapest of  cheap Shaving foam onto the glossy card.
Place 3 drops of the following Re-Inkers onto the top of the shaving foam 
Night of Navy
Bermuda Bay
Pool Party
Using a wooden skewer or similar, swirl the shaving foam, but don't over do it.
Next place the other piece of glossy paper, glossy side down, on top of the shaving foam
And here is the messy bot. Press the top piece of glossy paper onto the bottom piece, you will get lots of foam leaking out the sides, but do not worry.
Lift off the top piece of glossy paper and discard the rest . Wipe the excess foam off the top piece of glossy paper. Once dry, stamp the 4 trees in Black Memento ink  onto the now, ink marked piece of glossy paper, Apply Stampin Dimensionals to the four corners of the glossy paper and adhere to the back of the aperture on the black layer of cardstock.Apply Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse of the Black Layer of cardstock and attach to the card blank.
Make a layered label by stamping your sentiment onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and punch out using the Word Window. Layer this onto a punched Modern Label using Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. Layer up the labels using Stampin Dimensionals and attach to card front.
To Finish, use a few Basic Rhinestones, and a few Frosted Sequins and the card is made ready for someone special this Christmas.
