Card Design: Stained Glass

Window CardThis card design grew naturally out of a stamp that looks like a stained glass window.  After printing several verses from the book of Numbers on a sheet of 110 lb. card stock, I scored it in two places to produce a 3-panel card. I also cut out a square from the front to make the place for the window.

The image was stamped on vellum with black pigment ink, immediately coated with “deep impressions” clear embossing powder, and then heat set. Prismacolor pencils applied to the reverse side produced the colors of the window. Clear packing tape on the reverse side holds the window in place on the card while preventing the rich colors from smudging.

I’m reminded of the beautiful old cathedrals of Europe, and I’m submitting this to CASology for their weekly clean-and-simple card making challenge.
