Wanting to create a stunning Happy Birthday card I used the Painted Glass stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I think the Painted Glass stamp set is so beautiful. The classic stained glass images are timeless and so versatile. You will find the Painted Glass stamp set and Stained Glass Thinlits Bundle in the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, check it out in My Online Store here. You will also find the coordinating Graceful Glass 6″ x 6″ Designer Vellum in My Online Store here.
My card design was inspired by Dawn Griffith
My card partially opened:
I love how the front of the card covers the “Have a Beautiful Birthday” sentiment. But, you can open the card all the way allowing you to write more to the recipient. Also, notice how the stained glass bird helps to hold the front of the card closed. I think that the new Gorgeous Grape is one of my favorite colors and doesn’t the Garden Trellis embossing folder add just the right touch to the overall appeal of the card?
My Birthday card fully opened:
Close up of the stained glass window:
Of course, I have added the Clear Wink of Stella to the Highland Heather areas of the stained glass window. But, when have you known me not to use the Wink of Stella!
I hope you will give this Happy Birthday card using the Painted Glass Bundle from Stampin’ Up! a try. I know your recipient will LOVE it!!
