One idea that puts a blitz in my holidays is to have card ideas that are fun and easy to execute in multiples. Today I share a fun opportunity with a twist on a Splitcoast favorite that makes it a snap for mass production.

Kim Jolley originally brought us the Shaving Cream Sparkle technique. I'm usually one to refrain from messy, and I *loved* this. One plate and two re-inkers, and I was able to quickly and easily make a dozen background panels.

Kim's results were gorgeous with metallic heat embossing over the top of the shaving cream, and I opted for deco foil. Much faster execution that allows you to work on many pieces at one time and loads of shine.
1. Squirt liquid glue onto scrap of paper
2. Use a piece of wadded up plastic wrap to dip into glue and "sponge" across card swirled background. Allow glue to "rest" a minute or two so that it becomes tacky.
3. Press foil over glued areas. Let set for a moment so that glue "grabs" the foil and then peel foil sheet away, revealing sparkle across the glued area.

Are you ready to give it a whirl? I can't wait to see your creations!
