Yes, it is pretty easy!

Take tray or other longish flat object and cover it with about 1/4 inch or more of shaving cream. Spread around just like you are frosting a cake!. Take some reinkers -- I think 2 colors work best, but you could get away with a small amount of a 3rd color and drop some in. Swirl around with a knife. Don't swirl too much -- you want the striped effect.

Lay a piece of cardstock (usually white) on top of the cream, pressing lightly. I like to use 1/4 sheet at a time. Lift off and place on a piece of waxed paper or other surface. Take a credit card, spatula, something flat and wide -- and scrape off the shaving cream completely. The marbled effect dye will remain. Let the card stock dry on a paper towel. It will curl -- that's why I like to use a 1/4 sheet. Then you can place the paper in a book to dry or iron it lightly.

It makes a pretty background. Do multiple sheets at once so you don't make a big mess for just one card!!

Such an interesting idea. I think I'll have to try it sometime!

Default Faux Shaving Cream

You can also use a drop of different colors of food coloring. Works great.
Thanks, Diana

for the faux shaving cream, do you need glossy paper?
