Yes it's been a while. Yes, I have good stuff for you. More later.
But NOW, check out this Stained Glass Valentine; isn't it GORGEOUS??
Now you may be wondering how on earth I made that and I am here to tell you it was EASY PEASY! I used the beautiful Designer Cuts cards in the Occasions Mini Catalog and adhered a square of Vellum Cardstock to the INSIDE of the card, behind the cut outs. Using markers, I colored ON the vellum OVER the openings, allowing the colors to show through the vellum and the openings on the front of the card. When I was done, I just adhered a panel of Very Vanilla over the inside of the front of the card, hiding the "magic". A little ribbon and - VOILA! - gorgeous card in under 10 minutes!
The thing that is so wonderful about these Designer Cuts cards is that because the heart is filled with flower cut-outs, this can be used for so many more occasions than just Valentine's Day. Think of this as a Mother's Day card! Or a wedding card, done in the bride's colors. And the other design in the package of eight cards is a lovely border that would be just as beautiful with this treatment. And with the included Blushing Bride envelopes, these cards can be truly special.
