Glimmer Poinsettia Punch Art!

If you haven't peeked at the new Holiday Mini Catalog yet, you need to turn to page 41, write down item #124005 and send in an order for Glimmer Paper in Silver. Why? Take a peek at my card below and you'll know why:

I used my Blossom Punch and punched 12 leaves in Silver Glimmer Paper and 3 leaves in Pear Pizzazz. to tuck under the Glimmer leaves, I plopped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The photo below shows you how elegantly this paper shimmers:

The Pear Pizzazz petals were embossed with the Snow Burst Textured Impressions Folder which is also located in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I secured a cluster of Pearl Jewels in the center in assorted sizes and I then squeezed a little bit of Crystal Effects to keep them in place.

The sentiment is embossed with a new embossing powder in Pewter. It is gorgeous.........I think my favorite new embossing powder!
