Stained Glass Candles Card

A Jillian Vance Design, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, die, stained glass, Christmas
There's something so beautiful about stained glass windows, so I was very excited to be able to bring that beauty to a Christmas card.  Kecia Waters on the blog today with a card that features the AJVD die "Grandpa's Glass: Candles".

To make this card, I used "Grandpa's Glass: Candles" die and cut black card stock.  I punched all the pieces out to create the blacklined frame.  I then ran this frame through my Xyron machine to create a sticky back.  I then adhered it to white cardstock.  

Using "Grandpa's Glass: Candles" die again, I cut white X-Press It cardstock.  I removed each white piece, colored with Copic markers, and placed it into the black frame.  It was as if I was putting together a puzzle.  

Once my image was complete, I applied Versafine Watermark ink all over the image.  I then covered the image with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.  I used my heat gun to melt the UTEE.  I repeated this particular step three times to achieve the desired thickness, as I wanted it to appear as real glass.
