NaBloPoMo Day 7: “Stained Glass” Ornament Card

Here’s a third card with the Stained Glass technique. (Go back to yesterday’s post and the day before if you haven’t seen the 2 others!)

I used the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set (still available!!!) to stamp my Christmas ornament (in Cherry Cobbler) and I cut it with the coordinating Ornament framelits. To create this unique look of a stained glass part in the center, I stamped the “inside circle” in Versamark on Vellum card stock and heat embossed with Pewter embossing powder. I then color the back of the Vellum with Stampin’ markers (Real Red and Garden Green).  I punched a 1″ Circle in the ornament and placed on top of the Vellum.

To finish the card, I stamped the Swirly green “branches” from the Everything Eleanor stamp set in Garden Green, on Crumb Cake card stock that I had cut with the Top Note Bigz die. The greeting is stamped in Early Espresso with a stamp from the “Special Season” set.

Material:

Stamp set: Ornament Keepsakes, Everything Eleanor, Special Season,

CS and paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Core’dination Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Vellum card stock.

Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Versamark, Pewter emboss powder, Real Red and Garden Green Stampin’ markers.

  2. […] This card was based on another card I made but I wanted to simplify it a little bit. This is one of the card that we made today at the Stamp-a-Stack Christmas Card class. (To see the other card, click here.) […]
