Angel Cards Set 2 of 3

Yesterday I posted the first set of cards for Paola's Angel Card Swap.  Here is the second set that I made for her:

 The stained glass image is one from a set of three in a retired SU set.  It's stamped with Memento onto clear vellum, then the reverse side was colored with SU markers.

CS is from SU: Pale Plum and Perfect Plum.  The darker CS was embossed and then misted with A Muse's Shimmer Mist to give it a pretty shimmer (love that stuff!)

Nesties Label die was used to cut out the vellum image and the window on the darker plum CS.  Deckle scissors were used to trim the corners, then it was all mounted onto the lighter plum CS, using pale violet half pearls for accents.

It's my first time trying the stained glass technique and it was fun. If you haven't tried it before, give it a whirl, you'll be glad that you did!  

Thanks for stopping by!
