Faux Stained Glass Technique

Hello friends & welcome to another Heartfelt Wednesday inspiration post...
Faux Stained Glass Ornament Card  Pinterest
I have another card using O Holy Night Collection to share with you today... The star of this card is a Christmas Ornament which I made using the dies from Noel Ornament Die and I have used the Faux Stained Glass Technique that I Jennifer Mcguire demonstrated few weeks back... I loved the results and I had to give it a try...
I have changed few things like I used Gold cardstock instead of heat embossing and 3-D Crystal Lacquer to get the faux stained glass look.

Basically you die cut the detailed die a few times and stack them to create a chipboard like piece... color the base and fill in the depressions with any clear product like 3-D Crystal Lacquer, Glossy accents etc... and let it dry. The top layer can be changed according to your preference like white, gold, silver, black or any other color of your choice. The top layer is adhered after the 3-D Crystal Lacquer is completely dry so that any imperfections can be masked. Scroll down to see the full instructions and supply list to make this card.

But before we move on to my card here is an amazing offer I want to share with you all...

I wanted the ornament to be the highlight of this card so I kept the rest of the card very simple...
The ornament looks gorgeous in real life and I think the Bright Gold Nuvo Crystal Drops and rhinestones enhance it's beauty...

Use 2 of the inner dies from Frame a Card Leafy Borders Die and position them along the border and die cut the cardstock. Take a piece of 5" x 5" Vellum and adhere it to the back of die cut white cardstock using Metal Tip with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. Add a thin strip of gold cardstock to the die cut edge.

Align the white cardstock part with 0 on the Scoring Board and score the Vellum at 7". Adhere the scored part on a 5" x 7" white cardstock to make the card base. Cut a piece of 5" x 7" pattern paper from the O Holy Night Paper Collection and adhere it to the inside of the card.

Adhere one of the detailed die cut on the solid die cuts and then color it using green and red alcohol markers. Adhere all the white die cuts on top of the colored piece. Now fill all the depressions with a thick layer of 3-D Crystal Lacquer. Let it dry completely. Now adhere the gold die cut on top. Adhere it to the card front as shown. Add some rhinestones and Bright Gold Nuvo Crystal Drops to the die cut
