I created this card for the Papertrey Ink MIM #307 Faux Stained Glass challenge.
Laurie shared a video this week about using vellum to create a faux stained glass.
After making the stained glass piece, I really wanted the shine to come through so I cut a smaller square out of the white card base.
You can see the inside here:
I just love that snowflake!
Here is what the card looks like when you open it in light:
I chose a platinum colored vellum instead of plain to give it some more shimmer.
Everything was going well until I stamped my sentiment and got a smudge of ink on the left bottom of the card! So a few snowflakes helped disguise the oops!
Thanks Laurie for the challenge!!
Have a great day!

Gorgeous card Katherine! Love your beautiful stained glass window! All the snowflakes look fabulous! Hope your family have a Merry Christmas!
What a stunning snowflake and the perfect die to try out Laurie's challenge! Yes, I die-cut my card base to match the front too. The light does not come thru otherwise. 🙂
Lovely, lovely card, Katherine! The snowflake makes a beautiful window.
Beautiful card, Katherine! Love how this technique enhances the snowflake…looks like a real stained glass window!
