Instructions : 1. Stamp Cross using Jet Black Staz On ink onto a piece of embossable acetate. Let dry.
2. Turn image upside down and using Brushable Glue and a fine paintbrush, begin painting small areas of the cross with a generous amount of glue and then sprinkle with glitter and tap off the excess. Work in small sections completing the blues first. (Blues are applied with the darkest in the center working out to the lightest blue – Navy, Electric Blue, Laser Blue, Fascination). Let dry completely – time will vary based on temps and humidity. For further tips on this technique, also see the Video for Glitter Stain Glass (Mar 2011) in the Tips & Techniques section.
3. When blues are dry, carefully brush off all excess glitter. Then begin painting glue onto the remaining areas of the cross and apply Bridal glitter to the rest of the cross. (You may find it helpful to tap the glue into some areas so you don’t dislodge some of the blue glitters by brushing too much.) Let dry completely.
4. Cut a piece of blue cardstock (cs) to 4 ½” x 6 1/8” and die cut and emboss a window near the top of the piece with a Spellbinder Label 18 that fits the cross image.
5. Stamp May God Bless You near the bottom using Versamark ink and embossing with White Detail embossing powder.
6. Trim the acetate/cross piece to fit behind the window, center it, and tape into place.
7. Make an A6 card base (4 5/8” x 6 Ό” folded) from white cs and attach the cross piece to the front using Tearific Tape.
8. Add adhesive rhinestones and a flower (using glue dots) as shown.
