Floral Card

Hi Everybody,

This card is a mixture of techniques and brands but I think it looks really pretty. 

I have used a Gelli Plate and  Arteza Acrylic paints to get the background and then die cut it and added it to an embossed background.

The flowers are the yellow ones from Altenew and are a mixture of the new monthly kit and the Just Jasmine stamps and stencils that I have coloured pink and I have done a little surgery on the flowers

It is a lovely mixture of flowers and the colours compliment each other also.

I have enjoyed playing with this months Altenew kit and I look forward to the next one coming through my letterbox.

This card features the Just Jasmine set alone but I have again coloured them pink with Arteza paints

The paints are metallic to give a lovely soft sheen to the flowers and they blend so easily on the water colour paper also from Arteza.

The background to this is another Altenew product called Herringbone Stamp and I have shown you this one before when I coloured it in.

To this one I hade added a parchment die cut as the backdrop and it layered onto a circle die cut that has been offset on the card front.

The stamp gives a lovely effect even if it is not coloured and it sets the flowers off really well.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. This is such a beautiful card. I love how delicate the background is and the flowers are a strong contrast. So much to see and so elegant. You are one very talented lady, Miss Christina and I am all the better for having you and your beautiful creations in my life. I have a ton of your dies and continue to grow my collection and wonder if you consider making some 3d cards like old English cottages, candy shops and such to build a 'paper village' either for the holidays or for other holidays like Halloween and such. Keep up the good work -- you always brighten my day!
