Altenew Build A Flower

Hi Everybody,

Adding flowers of any description to a card is always a pleasure for me.

I just love the look of them in clusters or singly. This one is no exception and it is the Chrysanthemum from Altenew

I used Altenew mini inks to stamp it out as I layered up the design and then the matching die to cut it out.

And there you have a beautiful flower to add to your cards and so easy to accomplish.

I inked and embossed the background with the flourish folder from Card Making Magic to show case the bloom and then dotted it with sequins for a sparkly effect.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. Hello Christina,
    The layered Altenew stamps give a great effect and your card is lovely with your embossing folder used in the background and tinted to emphasise the flower.

  5. So so beautiful....I too, like you, think a card is not finished without flowers, hence female cards being easier to make....luv Ursula xx

  12. Love Chrysanths, any colour! Love it in yellow as you have done it. I think there is a significance in China about a yellow chrysanthemum?
