 As promised in this post, here is the second installment of the Shaving Cream Technique Saga.

Remember I had had my girls create a few sheets of shaving cream marbled paper because they were going to do two separate projects with them?

Well, on this second project, inchies were incorporated. The result is something of a stained glass window look.

The following card was obviously made with an original shaving cream print because it is darker and the marbling is more pronounced.

This one, being quite a bit more subtle, is probably the second generation. Thus, it was not the first print made directly from the shaving cream marbling, but probably the second one where I immediately placed a second sheet of paper directly on top of the first one, and rubbed them together. That second print is always a little more ghostly than the first one.

I just wanted to show you that, even though the effect is more subtle, it is still viable and wonderful in its own right.

The following photo shows them side by side. The contrast is not quite so striking in this photo because the first print faces the light, while the second, more subtle one, is a little more shaded. 

Anyway, if you'd like to make an inchie card with some of that leftover paper created with the Shaving Cream Technique, here you go:

Whisper White cardstock
Basic Black cardstock
Melon Mambo cardstock

Choice of black ink -- I used Memento Tuxedo Black

Big Shot
Zig Zag Embossing Folder
1" Square Punch
1/2" Circle Punch
3/4" Circle Punch
Washi Label Punch
Stampin' Dimensionals

Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Melon Mambo cardstock in half, creasing well with a bone folder.

Adhere a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Basic Black cardstock to the card base.

Run a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot inside the Zig Zag embossing folder. Adhere this piece over the black on the card base.

From one end of your chosen shaving cream piece, use the 1" Square Punch to punch four squares, choosing portions that have the most pleasing marbling. You can see exactly what you are punching if you turn your punch upside down and view the to-be-punched area through the little window in the punch. 

Adhere these squares evenly onto a 2 3/8" x 2 3/8" piece of Basic Black cardstock. Adhere this piece to a 2 1/2" x  2 1/2" piece of Melon Mambo cardstock.

From another little corner of the shaving cream piece, punch a 1/2" circle. Mount ths to a 3/4" circle you punched out of Basic Black scrap. Adhere this circle in the center of your squares.

Mount this entire piece to the card front, keeping equal borders on the top and sides, onto the embossed white piece with four Stampin' Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White, stamp "hello" in black ink. Use the Washi Tape Punch to punch it out. Adhere it to the lower portion of the card front with two Stampin' Dimensionals.
