Vellum and markers are two products many of us likely have in our craft room. And it is very easy to combine them for a stained glass look. I started by using my MISTI stamping tool (but you could use a large acrylic block) to white heat emboss Newton’s Nook Beautiful Blizzard snowflakes on a piece of vellum. I then added color to the back of the vellum with my Copic markers, but you could use any markers. Finally, I stitched with silver thread and my sewing machine around the edges of the vellum onto a card with fun glitter and sequins sandwiched inside. And that’s it! A super easy shaker card.
