Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves Stained Glass Card for the Stampers Showcase October 2021 Autumn Blog Hop

Welcome to the October 2021 Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop!  This month we're sharing beautiful Autumn/Fall themed projects.  I love the Autumn season with all it's beautiful colors so I chose to create a simple card with a fun Stained Glass Technique to share with you.

The Stained Glass Technique involves using Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers to color on a piece of acetate/window sheet.  This colored window sheet is sandwiched between the layers of cardstock, and accentuated with a beautiful maple leaf die cut from the Intricate Leaves Dies.
This is the back side of the image - showing how I've used three shades of Stampin' Blends to color the window sheet.
The color on the window sheet looks just like stained glass behind the gold metallic maple leaf.
Thick Basic White 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"; score at 4 1/4" and fold
Early Espresso cardstock 3 3/4" x 5
Basic White cardstock 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
