how to make a stained glass door embellishment with Spellbinders Edwardian door die cut and foil do it yourself

Just got a Sizzix big shot and went crazy with die cuts and embossing folders.  Here is one of my favorite Spellbinders Edwardian door die cut.  I made these stained glass doors embellishments from it to use in my mini journals, scrapbooks and greeting cards.  I thought I would do a tutorial on how to make one

First I cut the door with the Sizzix and the Spellbinder die. door cover
