Altenew &My Favorite things- Celebrate


Dashing in with a quick share for you.

I used a combination of dies from My Favorite Things, and an outline flower stamp and Gold embossing powder from Altenew to make a simple but elegant card that could be used for a birthday, wedding, engagement or anniversay...or any special day realy.

I used some MFT Cardstock in Crushed Coral to make my card base and then used the large die from Blueprints 20 to cut some vellum. I really love using layers of vellum when you want a softer effect and of course it's not as heavy as cardstock.

I took the large outline flower stamp from Altenew's Garden treasures, and stamped all over my watercolour paper with Versmark ink. I did this a few at a time, using my anti-static powder first and using the crisp embossing powder from Altenew in Antique Gold to heat emboss/
I then used my distress inks in Worn Lipstick, Abandoned Coral and Dried Marigold  to blend on some colour. I added a few drops of water and left for a few seconds before blotting with some absorbent paper., then I added a light misting of gold Glimmer Mist and left to dry. 

I cut the Celebrate word out several times in cardstock to match my base card, and for the top layer I sponged over with Versamark ink before adding more of the gold embossing powder and heating to make the beautiful gold finish. I then glued all my layers together to make my dimensional word.

I used a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp You Matter stamp set, and embossed with more gold powder on some vellum, cutting it out with an MFT Stitched Sentiment Strip die.

I glued all my elements together, popping the main panel up on some craft foam and then added a few sequins from Little Things by Lucy.

That's my card for today, I hope you like it and thanks for visiting!
