Founders Swap - Shimmery Pines, the Video!

Hello Friends
Shimmery Pines (Founders Circle Swap)

Its is easy to create lots and lots of these gorgeous, Shimmery cards






















I have been tickled pink  and on cloud nine for the last few weeks.  Ever since I returned from Founders Circle in Utah in September I have been getting tons of e-mails from all over Canada and the US with people asking me how I made my Founders Swap card - the super shimmery Ornamental Pine card.

The short answer is - it is super easy.  Just Versamark and Iridescent Ice embossing Powder.  But if you really want the whole scoop, take a few minutes and watch the video I put together for you.

To be honest, I wanted to make a video of this card anyhow, but the huge interest in it meant that I needed to make it sooner, rather than later.

So here it is folks.  Enjoy!
And have a wonderful weekend.  God Bless,    ~Cynthia   <><

    1. Thank you Kathy! Gail told me she had shown my card (or one that she created to mimic it?) and said that it was well-received. I am just so glad that SU! came out with such a gorgeous image in the Holiday catalogue. I mean really? Is it possible to use this stamp set in a way that isn't majestic and beautiful? ;)
      Hope you had a wonderful weekend! God Bless, ~Cynthia <><

    1. HI Donna - sorry I did not reply until now! Your comment went into a spam folder. But I just found it and sent it to the correct place.
      So very glad you like my card. It really is spectacularly shimmery i person, isn't it?. I have replicated it more times than I can say and it is just as gorgeous the 200th time as it is the first 2 or 3 times! Say hello to whoever your upline is (I see that you are out west but since we are one connected country, I suppose it could be anyone. Rosemary? Gail? Alanna? Susan? Eldonna? etc etc etc.....). At any rate, say hello to them on my behalf - and thanks for commenting here. Have a terrific evening and God Bless, ~Cynthia <><

  8. Hi Cynthia,

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful card. I had resisted buying the Ornamental Pine simply because I have so many Christmas sets already! your card put me over the edge! :) I am pretty sure this card is the reason the Iridescent Ice EP is on backorder! LOL!

    Thank you again - Fellow Demo - Lisa
