Miss You Card


Today I am sharing a card made as part of the Altenew Seasonal Scene Building class from Altenew Academy.

This class was all about building scene cards which I do often, but this class got me to think differently. So I decided to create a simple scene card without the addition of my usual colouring.

I started the card by blending a bright background using Distress Oxide inks in Salty Ocean, Broken China and Mowed Lawn. I flicked a little water over, soaked up the excess and set aside to dry.

Next I took a leaf stamp from the ‘Floral Shadow’ Altenew stamp set. I placed it in my Misti stamping platform and stamped it into the top corner using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I stamped it twice to make sure the image was nice and dark. I then stamped the bird and bench from the ‘Garden Grow’ stamp set from Altenew below the leaves. I added the miss you sentiment from the floral shadow set.

To complete the card I trimmed down the edges of the card panel slightly smaller than my card base and adhered it on to a piece of black cardstock so there was a thin black border around the edge and adhered this to my card base to complete the card.

Take care for now.
