A layered marble background is the perfect backdrop for a beautiful faux stained glass butterfly accent. I layered shades of gray inks and gold embossing on the smooth white background with the Layering Marble Stamp Set.

A greeting from the Lotus Stamp Set was stamped with black ink directly on the background. Butterfly accents were die cut from a sandwich of gold foil cardstock, stick it, and fun foam using the Pretty Butterflies Dies. The gold foil is the perfect outline for a faux stained glass look.

The dimensional butterflies were adhered to the cards as shown and the open areas filled with Glossy Accents. For a more opaque look, consider filling the openings with colorful Nuvo Crystal drops instead of clear. The cards were finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pale Gold, Silver Lining, and Oyster Grey.

Thanks for stopping by!
