Altenew, How-To Video

Hi, crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a fun card and a matching envelope that I created with three stamp sets I illustrated for Altenew: Layered Letters AFG, Halftone Hearts, and Crafty Friends.

To create my own stamped background, I stamped A, F, G letter stamps several times using four different ink colors: Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, Lagoon, and Emerald.

To add some soft look onto my card front, I added one layer of vellum paper after heat embossing the sentiment from the Layered Letters AFG stamp set using Antique Gold embossing power.

I love how vellum softens the bold stamped background. And the gold embossed sentiment looks gorgeous on vellum.

To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment from the Halftone Hearts stamp set with Zet Black Ink, die cut it using the Halftone Hearts die set, and mounted it on the card front using foam tape to give some dimension.

I also created a matching envelope by gold heat embossing the sentiments from the Crafty Friends stamp set.

Video Tutorial

I made a video tutorial to show you how to make this card from start to finish. I’m also sharing my failed(!) watercolor card and a way to dress up my card and envelope in the video. You can watch it here on my YouTube channel.

    Love this card and can’t wait to give it a go. Also, if I failed half as much as you with your watercolouring I’d be a very happy person😀

    Such a fun card. Love the use of vellum to soften the background and adding a layer without bulk.

    LOVE your AFG background card, and the vellum layer is so pretty! Thanks for sharing you failed attempts, but know that they aren’t failures in my book! I really liked your watercolored card with altenew inks too.
