Last is Stained Glass. The cross was die cut from the Stained Glass dies and then stamped in Dark Chocolate. I tried using Zing embossing powders to color in the window panes. I used a glue pen to color in each pane and heat embossed them as I went. It's not an exact science...a little messy looking, but kind of cool and dimensional. I'd probably just color them in next time, but I ran out of time to do it over. Well, at least you get to see what it would look like with this technique. Boutique Borders: Sympathy finishes the card.
