Tips:

  • When spraying the cardstock with shimmer spray, it is fine to have some large droplets. This will actually add to the interest of your design.
  • After stamping and applying shimmer spray, your cardstock may begin to fold. Iron the cardstock with a dry iron to flatten it before adhering it to your card.

    I love using shimmer sprays but the cards do tend to curl. Before I adhere them I place them between two clean sheets of copy paper and put a heavy book over it for about 12-24 hours. Thanks for another good idea.
