Embossed Button & Stained Glass card

I told you about my embossed colored button the other day.  I showed my stamp club girls Friday night and showed my downline tonight.  I had both groups make the same card which also included the Stained Glass technique.  Some time ago I had started a Technique Book – in my classes and club meetings when I introduced a new technique they could also create a technique card for their books.  Each card is a quarter sheet of card stock and fits in a small 4×6 photo album.  I pre-printed the instructions and then in the class they would create a small sample to place on their card along with a full sized card (or project) that used the technique.  I had gotten away from the techniques a bit so I’m trying to make sure to include them again.  So for this months club meeting I showed them the Stained Glass technique.  I also used one of the new Texture Plates for the Big Shot – I LOVE those!  I went back to a stamp set that I haven’t used recently – Dreams du Jour – remember that one?  Here is the card we made:
