Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Stained Glass Using Dies! The twist this month is Inlaid Glitter. The twist is not mandatory to play but we’d love to see your creativity and it will put you in the running for DT Favorite! And there’s a prize in the mix… a random number draw for $15 to the shop of your choice or via PayPal! How awesome is that?!
I created a friendship card using dark brown cardstock for the card base. I cut off the corners of the card base to follow the flat corners of the die cut.
I colored the first layer containing the die cut negative spaces with earth tones, then added Glossy Accents, some glitter and another coat of Glossy Accents.
I added five more die cut layers to build the design, then I added a few flat back pearls and a sentiment sticker to finish it off.
I kept the inside fairly simple with another sentiment sticker and a leftover strip of the brown cardstock used for the card base.
And one more look… I’m really loving how this stained glass look turned out! Have to admit I was a little skeptical about how it would end but I love it!

This is absolutely beautiful! Love the earth tones you used. The possibilities are endless. Image with red, green and gold or blues and silver for Christmas. Or pinks and reds and whites for Valentine. It’s beautiful on its own and would make a perfect background to showcase a seasonal image. Love it!
Have a wonderful day.
What a pretty effect, great card x
A fabulous card. I did not think of glossy accents and glitter – so clever. Thanks for being so inventive!
Very cool card, Leslie! And way to keep that glitter contained! xoxo
