It's WISE to DIY: Thrify Ideas for the Do-It-Yourselfer

She Is Using Shaving Cream To Make The Most Beautiful Art!


  • shaving cream
  • ink (colors of your choice)
  • Cards or whatever cardstock you want to “marble”
  • spatula
  • toothpick


  1. Use a large cutting board or other flat surface. Spray a generous amount of shaving cream in a large dollop.
  2. On the shaving cream, put a few ink drops of each color and use a toothpick to swirl it until it has the blend and marble effect that you like.
  3. Use the spatula to flatten it out.
  4. Press your card stock into the shaving cream firmly.
  5. Remove the paper, scrape off the excess cream and leave it to dry.

The finished product is GORGEOUS!


Seems it would be smart to even use 8 1/2 x 11 card stock, then you could cut them up into the desired sizes.
