Floral Thank You Card.


Today I am sharing a card from an Altenew class called ‘With A Twist.’

The class was all about adding a twist to your card, something different to make it stand out and get more out of products. I chose to focus on changing up the shape of my card.

To start the card I stamped out my images ready for Copic colouring. I used stamps from the Altenew ‘Poppy Garden’ stamp set.

Once all my images were coloured it was time for the die cutting. Firstly I cut out all my coloured images with the coordinating dies. Then I took the die from the larger floral image above and lay it across the top of my card base.

I then put it between the plates on my die cutting machine but only put the top plate over the area of the die I want to partially cut and run through the machine.

This leaves the shape of the die along the top of the card.

Next I took the Altenew ‘feeling dotty’ stencil and blended some Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry over the stencil blending lighter as I went down the card to fade out the pattern.

I then adhered my flowers and leaves with a tape runner and used foam pads to prop up one large floral image and add some dimension. I added a sentiment by taking a strip of black card and heat embossed the sentiment in white.

To complete the card I flicked some gold perfect pearls mixed with a little water from a small paintbrush over the card and added some sequins for some more sparkle.

Take care for now.
