Poinsettia Petals and Polished Stone Technique

 I learned this technique at a class I took from my friend Kay.  It is such an easy technique but looks absolutely gorgeous!  The card we made in class was in Blushing Bride.  But I decided I wanted to try a white version of it.  Here's what I came up with:

The shimmer in this card doesn't show up in the photograph very well.  If you watch the YouTube video on it, you can see it better.

Here are the dimensions for the card:
Thick Whisper White - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 - scored at 4 1/4
Silver Foil - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Shimmery White - 5 1/4 x 4 and scraps of Shimmery White for poinsettia
Shimmery White - 3/4 x 5 1/4
Scrap of Soft Sea Foam

This is the original Blushing Bride version:

This is another card we made in the class with Kay. It uses the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. We just colored the back of it with blends - quick and easy!

This is one of the cards that we'll make in class tomorrow night. I wanted to try a slimline card after seeing so many of them.  This poinsettia is a more traditional Real Red and of course more Wink of Stella!
