Just Because Cards, Thank You Cards

Thanks | Altenew April 2023 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome! Today we’re celebrating the new Altenew April 2023 Marvelous Monthly Series release! If you arrived from visiting Joy Baldwin, you’re right on track. If you’d like to start from the top, please visit the Altenew Blog. Check the bottom of this post for giveaway information and the full blog hop list.


My first card today features the Craft-A-Flower: Zinnia die set. These zinnias are so easy to put together!

I cut the layers of each flower from a variety of cardstock in a gradient of colors. I glued the layers together, cut some leaves from green cardstock, and then set the pieces aside.

Next, I cut out the sentiment using the Sweet Sentiments die set and then glued the detail layer and shadow layers together.

To assemble the card, I adhered the blooms, leaves, and sentiment to a white background that I embossed using the Arches 3D Embossing folder. Finally, I glued the card front to a card base.


My second card features the Craft-Your-Life: Engraved Motifs project kit which includes stamps, dies, coloring stencils, and an embossing folder,

I started by stamping the floral images in black ink onto white cardstock. Then I used the coloring stencils and small blending tools to color the blooms using Amethyst, Grape Agate, and Plum inks. For the leaves I used Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen inks. I also stamped the sentiment in black ink.

I used the coordinating dies to cut out the floral images and the sentiment and then used foam tape to adhere them to a background made with the embossing folder included in the kit. To finish, I glued the card front to a card base.

Thank you so much for visiting! Your next stop is Jeanette Jones!
