This year, I decided to try a few stain glass cards. Today and tomorrow, I am going to share the 2 I have done so far. So without further ado, let's get to it.
Today's card has a beautiful poinsettia as its centerpiece. I used softer colors for the outer rim of the stain glass as well as for the snowy look on the window in order to really make the poinsettia pop. I was very proud of this one. I was even more excited when I found out I could use the 3 1/2" circle die for the Big Shot to cut the piece of backing for this as well as to cut the actual circle with the poinsettia out. I simply lined up the acetate onto the die, glitter side away from the die, and ran it through. I always worry when I free hand cut that it will not look right so this made me very excited.
Here is a closer look at the poinsettia. I just love the shimmer. The lovely DSP I used to layer this on is from a set called Christmas Cocoa. Unfortunately, this set is not longer available. Have no fear, there will be more holiday paper in the catalog as well as in the holiday mini I am sure. I thought the snowflakes on it were a good match to the gold in the outer rim of the circle.
The greeting I chose to use is from the set Four the Holidays. This one is still available in the new catalog. I stamped it directly onto the DSP with VersaMark ink. Then using silver embossing powder, I heat embossed it to give it a little shine and raised texture.
All in all, I am pleased with the outcome of this card. I hope you liked it. Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know. Thanks for dropping in today.
