Stained Glass Die Cuts with Winnie and Walter + Brutus Monroe

This week, the Brutus Monroe team has joined up with WINNIE AND WALTER to create some absolutely amazing pieces! Please follow the blogs at Winnie and Walter and Brutus Monroe this week to see what the design teams have created!

For today’s card, I have this simple yet elegant card that I created with the MAGGIE’S ROSES CUTAWAYS. This die set caught my eye because I loved that you can cut the rose shape and then also the detail that you can layer on top. I decided to have some fun and see what would happen if I cut the rose shape out of some MARBLE CLEAR TONER SHEETS that were foiled with TIDEPOOL DECO FOIL, and then layered the detail die cut piece on top using some STERLING GLITTERSTOCK.

The results honestly blew me away! I couldn’t get over how this die cut rose looked just like a stained glass window!

Since the flower is so gorgeous, I definitely wanted it to stand out as the focal point. I cut the leaves around it out of some vellum, more STERLING GLITTERSTOCK, and also just white cardstock. I layered all the leaves behind the flower and then popped the flower up in front of the leaves using some foam adhesive.

I wanted to add something to the background without making it too crazy or busy, so I added some texture paste over the TANGLED WAVES STENCIL. After the paste was dry, I adhered the front card panel onto a white card base.

After my flower was added to the bottom of the card, I finished it by scattering a few purple sequins around the flower. This sequin mix is one from KINDRED STAMPS.

I left a sentiment off this card because I thought it looked like a wedding card, and since I don’t currently have any weddings to attend, I wanted to be able to customize it with the couple’s names before giving it away.

Now, after foiling a project, I always wonder what to do with the foil negatives. They are so pretty that I never want to just toss them! In this instance, I added the negative piece to the inside of the coordinating envelope as a liner.

I thought this was a fun way to customize a handmade card and envelope set, and it really takes this project to another level!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card (and envelope)! Please be sure to stop by the BRUTUS MONROE BLOG and the WINNIE AND WALTER BLOG, too!

Until next time,
Marie Nicole
