Crafts are a fun hobby for me! This year one of my favorites is shaving cream stationary.
It's easy!

I bought a throwaway aluminum casserole pan, a can of regular (white foamy) shaving cream, neon and regular food coloring colors, white cards and envelopes and paper towel.

put some shaving cream in the pan - about 1/2 inch thick and my favorite food coloring colors (I happen to love red and yellow) slightly mix them into the shaving cream.

Then, you can (lightly) put the card on top of the shaving cream, lift it off and let sit for 5 minute
or what I did - take a paper towel, get some of the shaving cream mixture on it and dab it on the card, let sit 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes (it lets the color soak into the card) wipe off the card with paper towel.

You can do the same with the envelope, if you so desire!
the cards don't take very long to dry. If you need to, you can press the card with an iron or in a book so it's nice and flat.

Shoot! the pictures didn't show up! it did when I previewed the post . ..

I'm glad I could share, Digitl! I bought a pack of white cards with envelopes at Michael's craft store. I think any card will work, though.
