Stained Glass Vellum

This card was made using the Stained Glass Vellum technique.  It's really simple.  Emboss your image on vellum card stock.  Color the image in on the back side.  Flip it over and add it to your card front.  I can't wait to try this technique for a Christmas card.

I used a couple of retiring colors on this card...Apricot Appeal and Lavender Lace.  Retiring colors are available only while supplies last (and demand has been much greater than anticipated), so be sure to order your "must haves" now. 

Note that the scalloped layer was made by layering 4 punched out scallop squares.  Also, the image was embossed before running it through the Big Shot.
