Spritzing Silver Glimmer paper

Silver Glimmer paper can be changed to become any color you wish.

     Don't these flowers remind you of Cone Flowers, or even Black-Eyed Susans which I am partial to?  They are so easy to make.  The center of each flower is made by spritzing silver glimmer paper with a combination of rubbing alcohol and Early Espresso reinker.  Want to know how I made the flowers?

1. Punch two different sized scalloped circles.

2. Fold cirlces in not quite half, so that the bottom layer sticks out below the top layer just a little bit.

3. Cut the top layer on each one of the scallops.

4. Place some dimensionals inside the layers to allow the top layer to pop out a bit.

5.  The leaves are made using the build a flower punch.  I created the veins using my Certainly Celery stampin write.

     Each of the cards from this class featured some of the retiring colors.  This year stampinup is doing a color refresh.  They try to do this every 3-5 years to keep their colors current.  These are the retiring colors I used in this card.
