Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Altenew Flowers

Hi Everybody,

I have used a mixture of things on this card but I do like the end result. It uses one of the flowers from the second of the Craft Your Life Monthly Project Kit from Altenew and this is the Lush Garden.

The background is created with Distress Oxide Inks blended in an Ombre effect.

The black lines on the background have been hand drawn using a ruler and alcohol marker pen, and then the panel has been embossed in a Card Making Magic Embossing Folder

The flowers have been arranged at the bottom of the card and I have used foam pads to give some height. 

The final additions are some black pearls and the sentiment is Label Love also from Altenew.

This card also uses the same kit but this time in turquoise and the flowers have been added to a Washi Tape oval.

I have also used the same embossing folder and added the oval with foam tape underneath for height. 

The Label Love sentiments are always useful and Altenew also do a Mega  Label Version. 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  2. Hi Christina. So sorry I have not been around the last few days ... Been a bit off it ... But I have scrolled back and looked at some beautiful work that you have done. I know you donate many of your cards to the charity shops ... And I just know they will love everything you send them especially if they are all like these. Thankyou Christina for sharing all your ideas with us.. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
