Stained Glass Dog

Hello!  Donna Phelan back again!
 
 
Today happens to be my Grand Fur Baby, Hank's 4th Birthday! 
So of course, I had to make him a birthday card.  With a new baby in the house
we don't want him to feel neglected....trust me, he is not!
 
 
 
 
 
I used the fabulous Tutti Designs Stained Glass Dog.  Isn't he just the sweetest?  I cut out the frame in Gold Foil, which I created using Toner Paper and my Mini Minc Machine.  Here's a simple tip:  I always create sheets of foil, that way I have a bunch of pretty colors to use my dies on.  I backed the Gold Foiled Frame on to Double Sided Adhesive Paper and then started to fill in the open areas with Glitter in many different colors.  Now let me tell you....do not do it this way!  Ever!  It is labor intensive and the glitter typically does not go where you want it to go.  lol  You may want to try adding all white or clear glitter and then just coloring it with markers.  You could also add a Vellum backing and color on the backside of that to let the colors shine through.  I will definitely use these options the next time!  The Double Sided Adhesive paper really hangs on to the Glitter though, so that's a plus! 
 
 
 
 
 

 
I ended up cutting the frame 3 times to build up some dimension.  A few paw prints and a Puppy Love greeting on the inside and my card was complete. 
 
 
 
 

 
He is quite sparkly!
 
 
 
 
Here's what I used:
