Good Morning. In an effort to use up some of the inked background papers I have had in a box for ages, I found this shaving cream piece that I made years ago....that became my card front. For those of you that have never done this shaving cream technique, there is a great tutorial over at Splitcoast you can watch to see how it is done; super easy.
While looking through that box, I found a piece of cardstock that I had stamped and embossed with white embossing powder and never used. I used it to die-cut my poinsettia from Spellbinders. While the paper was still in the die, I sponged it with Faded Jeans Distress ink. I love the results...it gave the flower a frosted look as the embossing resisted the ink. I mounted the flower onto a strip of white cardstock with a small strip of silver paper under that. The button and the silver twine finish off the center of the flower.
