Dies R Us Holiday Window

Hello!  I designed this for the Dies R Us Christmas in July Challenge.  Hope you can join us to play for the chance to win a voucher to the Dies R Us store.  The selection of dies is absolutely incredible, it seems like the store adds new dies daily!  They also offer free shipping in the US over $35 and internationally over $50.  

Close up you can see how the poinsettia's shimmer.  I covered them in a fine white glitter and gave them rhinestone centers. 

For the interior of the window, I blended distress ink and water on white cardstock.  After I was done, I wanted it to look softer so I added a piece of wax paper over to create a stained-glass effect.

I added tiny rhinestones to the ends of the swirls.  The window was colored with TH Distress Metallic Stain.  I added a piece of plastic (from toy packaging) underneath the window frame with foam tape to add dimension.  
Rhinestones, Glitter, TH distress ink, Wax paper, clear plastic, TH - bricks embossing folder

Thanks for visiting!
