Add A Stained Glass Window To Your Handmade Easter Card Ideas!
You are probably starting to look at handmade Easter card ideas and we are sure you spotted this fabulous fun card in this post here – today, Julie is sharing how she made this fun “stained glass window”.
First, she stamped, colored and die cut these adorable characters from our new Bunnies set. Oh, and thank you for all the nice things you’ve shared about these sets – yes, we love them too and are so glad you are excited to craft with them! When they were all colored up, Julie cut them out with our coordinating dies, sited them on her front panel and colored in some grass for them to sit upon. We just love the dimension this adds!
Then Julie sponged a piece of card stock with some of the same shades she used to color her characters and stamped our Easter Eggs background over that. She then added some highlights of color here and there with her Prismacolor pencils on the design elements of the eggs.
She then cut this stamped layer and a piece of vellum into ovals. Using the same Oval Stitch Dies, she double cut another piece of white card stock to make an oval frame. Julie adhered the vellum to the stamped background around the very outer edges. She stamped her greeting on a scrap of white card stock, trimmed it down and adhered it over her stained glass oval. She then added her white oval frame with a fine line of liquid glue to hid where she attached the vellum to the stamped surface.
Here are the Copic markers Julie used to color these bunnies and some chicks for another project we will share soon!
And here are the items Julie used from our store today:
Are you saving this one to your handmade Easter cards ideas board? We just love the idea of adding a little “stained glass” to a card and the idea of being able to see those colored eggs just makes us “hoppy”!
