Faux Stained Glass Card Tutorial


I used the beautiful Brutus Monroe Stained Glass die to make this faux stained glass birthday card. The windows on the final card are translucent and shimmery like stained glass illuminated by sunlight.

How to Make a Faux Stained Glass Card:

3 die cuts
I placed the die in my die cut machine with four stacked pieces of white card stock. This cut the first three pieces of card stock and left an impression on the fourth piece.
color the stained glass
I used Copic markers to color the fourth piece of card stock. Don’t worry if you go outside the lines–this will be covered up in the completed card.
heat emboss
To create a stained glass look for the top layer of the card, I used Brutus Monroe’s embossing ink and sterling ultra fine embossing powder on the top die cut piece of card stock.
apply gloss
After adhering the white die cut pieces of card stock to the card, I used a shimmer pen to add some sparkle to the colored parts of the card. Then I added a clear glaze on top of the shimmer pen. I let this dry overnight. In the morning, I adhered the silver embossed die cut piece to the top of the card and added a sentiment.
The completed card.
