I decided to do a little creative shimmering of the cardstocks and printed papers used in this card. Each piece was sprayed with Bath & Body Works: Magic in the Air/ Diamond Shimmer Mist to achieve a rich shimmery sheen all over, though it does not show up in the photo. I sprayed each piece all over as a cut them for assembly, even the stamped sentiment!! I dried each after spraying them with my heat tool. The shimmer is beautiful and rich and looks like the paper was made that way! Wonderful! I was stoked! My mortarboard graduation hat is combination of die and hand-cut...a diamond die for its top and hand-cutting its base.

What a great graduation card. All the time and effort you put into the card really shows. Now I'm going to have to go dig through my daughter's Bath & Body works stuff to see if she has a shimmer spray for me to "borrow". lol I never in a million years would have thought to use it that way. Thanks sooo much for sharing!

That mortarboard is nicely done, Carlene! Love the dimension and of course the tassel. Brilliant to use the shimmer mist on the card. Bet it smells good too. Beautiful card, bet your daughter loved it.
