Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Good morning crafters!  Today's card giveaway is another stained glass card (I have loads of them!)  I started by cutting the Poinsettia Stained Glass in black card and attaching it with spray glue to a piece of clear acetate.   In the traditional stained glass technique, I used Polished silk glitters of varying colours applying them to the back of the acetate in thee different sections.  You need to start with the darkest colours first then work your way towards the lighter colours.  I started with the green for the leaves, then the red for the flowers.  I used gold for the edges and white for the background, filling in the sections with glue, covering with glitter then tapping off the excess.  I set it aside to dry overnight when it was completely filled it.  When all the glue dries and turns clear, the glitter colour will show through the front of the acetate.  I cut another of the Poinsettia Stained Glass dies in white and overlaid the black one with a slight offset.  The original black die did have a wider border on it so it shows from underneath the white die on top as well.  I cut the Twinkle Frames in white and added a white backing and seated the stained glass in the centre, adding flatback pearls to the twinkle stars around the edge (and the centres of the poinsettias).  I stamped a sentiment and cut it into a tag shape and tucked the end under a white crystal dazzler that I added to the middle of a red organza bow.  I added the bow in the corner of the card and the card can effectively be used either vertically or horizontally.  White and black mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x   8" in size.  Leave a comment if you would like to be entered into the drawing to win this one.  I will announce the winner on Saturday's blog post.  All for now, Sue x
