Thank You Cards

So Thankful For You | Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Magnolia Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, I hope your week is off to a good start! Today we’re celebrating the release of the Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Magnolia layering die set! If you arrived from Jenny Colacicco’s blog, you’re right on track. If you want to hop along from the beginning, visit the Altenew Card Blog. Check the bottom of this post for giveaway information and the full blog hop list.

I started off by die cutting the petal layers out of five different shades of cardstock, starting from a medium pink base and ending with a white top layer. Then I cut the two layers of the center of the flower from a bright dark pink and a golden yellow. I cut the leaves from two shades of green and then I layered and adhered all of the pieces together.

For the background, I used Frosty Pink Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray to spritz one corner of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock. Then I dipped a small paintbrush into Jet Black Ink Spray and created some light black splatters over the pink, concentrating the splatter at the same corner as the pink spray.

Next, I used the Simple Shapes Cover Die to die cut three panels of white cardstock. I stacked and adhered the three layers together and then adhered the piece to the pink sprayed background. I glued the leaves to the background and then used foam tape to adhere the magnolia. To finish, I added a heat embossed sentiment (made with the Needlework Motif stamp set) and then adhered the card front to a card base.
