Stained Glass Window with Battery-operated Tealight

Hello, Crafters.

I hope you're enjoying a great weekend.
We had a lovely day yesterday celebrating daughter, Vicki's 
parents-in-law Golden Wedding Anniversary. All four of Tom
 and Iris's sons were there, each with their wife and children, 
plus quite a lot of other family members, as well as friends and
 neighbours, but more about that tomorrow!! 
Today's video shows how I made a tent-type card that has a 
stained glass window, behind which you can put a 
battery-operated tealight! The card is fixed so the tealight
 sits inside and the card won't fall over.

My first card is in Soft Sky Cardstock (CS) which is now a 
retired colour. I added Happy Birthday sentiment from the Vertical 
Greetings Stamp Set, to this card which I think worked well. 
 I also think this will be brilliant for other occasions e.g. weddings,
 anniversaries, engagements, etc.

 For the second card I used Blushing Bride, but my camcorder ran
 out of memory  just as I was about to make the sentiment! Frustrating 
as this was, I liked the look of the card without a sentiment just
 as much as the one with the sentiment. 

I decided not to add a sentiment in the second attempt so I can 
save these cards and as a sentiment as and when! The first
 three photographs show each of the three cards with a tealight
 behind the window, and the second three photographs without.
I wish you a very blessed Sunday. I will be back tomorrow
 with some photographs from yesterday's celebrations.
 So until tomorrow, happy crafting.
