VIDEO-Faux Stained Glass Snowflakes with Flurry of Wishes


faux-stained-glass-snowflake-cards-thumb

Today I’m sharing a technique that some call “Faux Stained Glass”.  You basically take a panel of vellum, emboss one side with an image that you can add some color to, and then add the color on the reverse side to get a translucent effect similar to stained glass.

In the video, I show how I completed the first card.  The other two cards are essentially the same except for the colors and that the sentiment is embossed in silver on a separate piece of white cardstock and attached to the card with an extra strip of pattern paper.

I used Whisper White Thick Cardstock for all the card bases.  The two darker panels (first and last cards) are Pacific Point Cardstock.  The lighter one is Marina Mist Cardstock.

The darker markers are from the Brights Stampin’ Write Markers.  I used the Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise ones.  For the lighter card, I used a Copic marker (I can’t remember which one but the lightest ones I own are B02, B24 and B32 so it had to be one of those).

I used Tempting Turquoise Ink to sponge the backgrounds on the first and last cards but used a lot less ink on the first one to get a more subdued color.  The second card is sponged with Marina Mist Ink.

The full supply list is at the bottom of the post.

I added a gift card holder pocket to this card by adding a piece of  Whisper White Cardstock cut to 4-3/16″x2″ and adhering snowflakes stamped with the Flurry Of Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set and punched with the Snow Flurry Punch.
