A Reason to Smile in Stained Glass

This is one of the cards we made at my stamp clubs this week.  It uses a special set,  Reason to Smile, offered in July for just $5 with a $50 purchase.

The recipe includes Marina Mist card stock and marker, Certainly Celery ribbon, Whisper White and Bashful Blue card stock, Vellum card stock and retired Paisley Petals DSP.

The Vellum card stock and Whisper White were layered and cut together using the Apothecary Accents Framelits and the Big Shot.

Two flowers were stamped in VersaMark on the vellum die cut and heat-embossed with Black EP.  A third flower was stamped, embossed, and cut out on a scrap of vellum.  All of the flowers were colored in on the back side with the markers,  using the Stained Glass Technique.  The third flower was layered onto the die cut and attached with drops of Tombo multi-purpose glue.

The  butterfly was cut out with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and attached with a glue dot.

Tiny brads were attached by piercing little holes in the vellum with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.. 

My stampers loved making this elegant card.  We left  a space at the bottom to add a simple greeting before sending the card.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a nice day!
