My Little Stained Glass Windows — Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there, friends!

Today I would like to share my new Elizabeth Craft Designs DT creation that reminds me of old stained glass windows, something I’ve been fascinated by as long as I can remember. When I received the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Butterfly Labels 1 Peel-offs, I knew immediately what I was going to make next: stained glass windows! Well, almost stained and almost windows and lots of fun! This is how we can create one together:

1. Take out your Butterfly Labels 1 Peel-offs, a sheet of transparent Double Sided Adhesive and a clear sheet of acetate.

2. Peel off the release sheet from the Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and adhere the adhesive side to the clear acetate sheet. Peel off the other release sheet and set aside.

3. Place three Butterfly Label Peel-offs facing down (sticky side up) onto the release sheet and place the Double Sided Adhesive Sheet on top.


4. Cover the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, rub the surface with your finger and brush off the extra glitter.


5. Fussy cut around each peel-off and use the remaining material to cut out a small butterfly, “Thank You” note and some small flowers.

6. Use your Copic or other alcohol markers to color the surfaces.


7. Add Glossy Accents to the areas you would like to bring out further and let it dry overnight.

8. Cut four accordion pages using the Accordion Fancy Label die from clear acetate.

9. Also cut four pages from the blue patterned paper and cut out the center of all four. You will now have just four frames which will function as edges.


10. Assemble the accordion card with all the elements.


I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial as much as I enjoyed creating this card. And I especially hope that you try this technique yourself too.

hugs, Rita
