Happy Holidays to all! My December posts for Poppystamps are after Christmas has come and gone but I hope you will still enjoy my church window card.
I created a double window for this card so that it has a window inside and outside of the card.
The first image shows the outside of the card. I created a stained glass effect by applying adhesive to vellum and then using a fine glitter. Then I affixed the Grand Gothic Iron Works window that I cut out of a pearlized white paper. Once it dried, I colored the reverse side (non-glitter) with markers.
Next, I cut the Grand Gothic Iron Work Window a second time from the base of the cardstock.
And then I cut the Grand Gothic Window (frame) twice out of pearlized white cardstock.
Then, I took a second piece of cut vellum and applied Adhesive, Glitter, and the Iron Work Window cut from the blue base. After allowing to dry I glued the two sections together.
While that dried I glued the window frame to the front of the card and then placed the "sandwich" of vellum inside before adhering the second window frame inside.
After this I cut another white piece of cardstock and stamped the greeting, cut several pine sprigs and poinsettia leaves before building the flowers and adhering to the front of the card.
As you can see from the shot below (of the inside) it is much darker looking than the image above which is because there is no light source behind it. The image above I took with the card open and a lamp behind it.
This card can be adapted for a first communion, baptism, Easter or even a sympathy card.
Hope you liked it.
