It is hard to see but I have used the gold shimmer brush. I used the thin 3-D foam but didn't use other embellishments so they can go more easily through the mail. This stamp set uses Cricut images from the Artbooking cartridge of the Close To My Heart set. There are still more great cards that can come from this stamp set. Get one for yourself and see what you can do. You can post your creations.
