Stained Glass Suite from Stampin Up

Today I wanted to use the Stained Glass paper and stamp set from Stampin  Up.  I did not actually notice this set on my first view through the catalogue.  I think it was because the paper looked just black and off-white and the stamp set had smallish images with sentiments in an Old English font.  On my second glance through the catalogue, I did notice the Old English font which I like.  Looking at the set more closely, I realised that the paper was printed vellum with stained glass motifs.  I began to think of the multiple uses of a set like this, from elegant birthday cards to respectful sympathy cards.  I also realised that the smallish images in the stamp set enhance the stained glass scenes on the vellum, without overpowering them.

I made three cards, that all turned out well.
