Stained Glass Window Card

I finished the stained glass window on this card several years ago, but I never could figure out what to do with it.  Yesterday, someone sent me an e-mail asking if I had a pattern for a stained glass window, so I decided to dig this card out of the unfinished box and finish it.

The clilp art is from PCCrafter.  The bride and groom are from the November 2005 PC Hug Club "Topper" set.  The bird is from the Friends Forever collection by Tricia Santry.  I did the bride and groom in 3-D using three layers.  I started to use pop-dots between the layers, but they were too thick, so I glued three layers of lightweight card stock together and used that instead. It was a little more work, but the spacing is much better and I don't have to worry about the card being too bulky to go in the mail.

You can download the pattern for the window at: http://www.handcraftedgreetings.com/irisfoldinst.html

If you've never done 3-D decoupage before, there's a brief description on my website at www.handcraftedgreetings.com/cfbirthday.html (see steps 10 and 11).
