So, I have a thank-you gift to send a friend's mom, and I wasn't sure what to give her.  So I'm thinking of a stationery set, hand decorated by moi.  Now, my friend's mom is a very elegant woman with simple, classic tastes.  So I was trying to think of colors she'd like.  And I thought, what if you swirled stamper's mica powder into the shaving cream?  Do you think it would stick, or would it wipe off?  Are there any silverings that aren't in powder form that might work?  I'm thinking, like a silver pen, broken open to use the ink, or something.  Thoughts?

I'm not too sure about this idea. I say, if you have the materials already, test it out first. Unless anyone else here has something about it to say?

i stumbled across this a few weeks ago and thought it was awesome! so of course i had to try it... and of course i loved it and had to make some more... then i got the idea to make little cards for my earrings that i'm selling at a craft fair for kids under 18....they are a little smaller than business cards- my little name for my "business" is crazy pansy and so i put little pansy stickers on them too...it was so much fun and i love them!!!! thanks for posting this!!!

I tried this and my card did not come out at all!  It just looks like I drew splotches with marker and the marker bled...   Huh  What did I do wrong?

is anyone else having difficulty writing on these cards? i tried to address the outside of the envelope, but its really, really tough. i thought of just putting on a label, but i'm sending it overseas, so i'm kinda worried about the postmarks running, etc.
what do you guys think?

Mine are okay to adress, so I don't know what happened with yours. I'm having no problems at all, so I don't know what to say that can help.

Do you think you can take a picture or maybe scan a card? I think if I saw what happened I'd be able to help. I can't really picture it well in my head.

i made my own and learned a few things:
1) if it looks like there is too much shave cream, there definately is. i wasted an awful lot.
2) paste food colours don't work well. i had to water mine down to get really good results. (i kept trying to make it swirly and i would end up melting them together)
3) don't get them wet... messy!

my favorite are (the first picture) and in the second picture, the middle right(i put the colour on the plate THAN the shave cream), bottom left (i used cream coloured paper and like how it turned out) and the topmost right, solid green.

This looks cool!  I'm going to have to try it.  Now, while I know that hand-made cards are really nice, what if you made matching note-cards or something and just made one sheet of paper, then printed off reproductions and used those on the notecards?  Then you'd be able to make whole sets really quickly, and it'd be much less labor-intensive.  Kind of a pansy-arsed shortcut, I know, but might be worth a try.  (I'm talking just making printed sheets of paper, and using it as one layer on a notecard, though, not just printing the notecards.)
