All About Layering 1 – Lesson 2

Today I’m sharing the card a made for my Altenew Academy class, All About Layering 1 – Lesson 2. For this card, I used the Garden Treasure Stamp & die bundle from Altenew, which is a gorgeous stamp set. You can create beautiful flower arrangements for your cards.

To make this card, I started stamping the flowers and leaves on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb. and heat embossed the images with Platinum embossing powder from Altenew. The inks I used for the images are following colors: Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Grapewine, Frayed Leaf, and Moon Rock, all from Altenew.

After this step, I used the matching dies to cut out the flowers and leaves. Next, I created and arrangement with the cutting dies on an A2 light gray cardstock and glued them with glue dots and foam tape for some dimension. Also, I stamped with Moon Rock ink directly to the cardstock more images from this stamp set to give a final touch to my flower arrangement.

In addition, I sprayed white Iridescent Ink with shimmer from Kaisercraft to create some splashes on the cardstock. Finally, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Sweetest Peas stamp set with Platinum embossing powder, both from Altenew. As my last step, I added some embellishments from Lucy’s jewels.

I love how this card turned out. I like the contrast between the gray cardstock and the flowers. I really hope you enjoyed this post.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
