This flamingo is my third exploration of this “stained glass” technique. I’ve also shared a blue heron and a swan design as well. I’ve been on a kick with birds lately, and I just want to keep making more and more of these lovely little pieces.

These vellum projects look fantastic with some light behind them! You can hang them in a window, or put them in a recessed frame with some backlighting, and they look stunning.

This flamingo is the result of a reader request, and I just think it is perfect for summer!

To make this project, all you need is:

Note: if you’re planning on utilizing Cricut’s “print then cut” feature to do this project, make sure to ungroup all fo the layers first; then select everything, besides the “outline” layer, and hit flatten.

Once everything is printed and cut out, all you need to do is attach your vellum layer to your cardstock detail piece with a little hot glue—easy peasy!

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy making your own stained glass flamingo! What other birds do you think would make a nice addition to this series?

    This is beautiful! Did you used colored vellum? If so, where does one find that?

      Thanks Andrea! I actually just used regular old translucent velum and printed the design on it using the “print then cut” feature on my Cricut machine. 😀

    Beautiful design. Thanks for sharing the download Miss Mandee!

    I’m unable to open this file in canvas workspace (I know you use cricut), has anyone else had this happen? Is there a trick I am missing?

      You are very welcome Brooke!

      Sorry that you are having trouble. I don’t know if this will help, but I did find this article about uploading SVG files to Canvas Workspace. I don’t know much about it, but there is a possibility that it might not like the layered nature of the file.

        thank you so much for taking the time to respond. I’m getting an “unable to import. the file may not be supported”… I shall try putting it onto USB and putting it straight onto my Scan N Cut! Thanks for your amazing designs <3

    This is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing it! I made the blue heron a few months ago. I cut it on plain vellum and colored it in with markers. It has a beautiful stained glass effect. I have it hanging in my craft room window. I think a cardinal would be great for Christmas time, if you’re looking for ideas…

      Thank you Jenny! Coloring it in my hand is a fantastic idea!! I’m sure it turned out beautifully. 😊

      And I love your idea of doing a cardinal around Christmas time too!
