Stained Glass Suite from Stampin Up Part 2

It occurred to me after I created the cards in the last post, that there was supposed to be matching dies for the Stained Glass stamps.  I will spare you the details……………………but panic ensued as I could not find the alleged dies anywhere in my craft room.  Eventually, they turned up.

I am happy they did as they are wonderfully intricate and delicate and are amazing as a complement to the stamp set.  The card came together perfectly until I heat embossed the sentiment.  I put the moth too close to the flame, as it were, and I warped the vellum a bit.  To fix that, I decided to run the card through my Bigshot to flatten it.  Bad Idea!  It did flatten it a bit, but in the process also flattened the delicate die cut.  While it still looks good;  it did look better and more dimensional before I steamrolled it.  Live and learn.
