Congrats | Card

Hello, everyone!
I have a card to share today which I created for the Altenew A Year in Review Challenge. I am slowly getting my mojo back and decided to create a card for the challenge. Here's a look at what I created :


You can see the gray stenciling more closely here.


To create my card, I first die-cut a card panel using one of my Gina Marie Designs die. I then stenciled on the panel using the Heidi Swapp Square Lattice stencil using Hickory Smoke Distress ink.
Then, I started to work on the focal of my card. I used the Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set to stamp all the flowers and leaves. The flowers were stamped using the Altenew Red Cosmos inks. For the outermost layer, I decided to heat-emboss them using some gold embossing powder. I coloured the leaves using Hickory Smoke Distress ink. Once this was done, I fussy-cut all the images and popped them on some foam tape for dimension. I also added a tiny flower from the Altenew Vintage Flowers set. For the sentiment, I used the Altenew Sentiment & Quotes set which was also gold heat embossed. I added few Nuvo Drops in shades of pink to finish off my card!

I am playing along with Therese's Challenge from the month of August. I haven't worked with this colour combination before & was really happy to try it out.



That's it for today, I hope you like my card. I would love to hear your views on it!


Have a nice day everyone!

  9. I am just drooling over your cards. They are beautiful! I must admit that I am partial to peonies, as they are such an opulent flower in real life. Working with them on cards is very easy too, as they have this natural beauty that just cries for one to use them.
