Stained Glass Butterfly Card



Stained Glass Butterfly Card by Janet Packer (CraftingQuine.blogspot.co.uk)

Hello, I've been wanting to make one of these stained glass cards for a while. This one is made from black card and pearlescent vellum coloured with alcohol ink.


Stained Glass Butterfly Card by Janet Packer (CraftingQuine.blogspot.co.uk)


The card base was cut from heavy-weight cardstock on my Silhouette Cameo, and then 2 further frames cut from adhesive cardstock. Once the vellum (coloured with two colours of alcohol ink) was dry, I stuck one of the frames on to it, and trimmed around it, sandwiched the vellum with the other frame then mounted the whole butterfly onto the card base.

I made a separate body in the Silhouette software, cut two, and adhered them on on top with the top most one decorated with glitter flock.

The sentiment is a stamp from Lawn Fawn and was stamped in blue Distress Oxide ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Items Used:
Butterfly Card cut file by StudioIlustrado
Silhouette® Cameo 3
Pearlescent Vellum
Adirondack Alcohol Ink in Aqua
Adirondack Alcohol Ink in Sailboat Blue
Black Heavyweight Cardstock
Black Adhesive Cardstock
Glitter Flock Powder
Lawn Fawn Scripty Sayings
Distress Oxide Ink in Broken China  






The colours and butterfly subject inspiration came straight form the images the Daring Cardmakers May Elemental Challenge. The third element was the texture of the fluffy, kitten on the butterfly's body.

Daring Cardmakers have such great challenges!
