Altenew: Winter-themed Friendship Cards + Giveaway

by May Park-

A couple of days ago, I created two cards for upcoming Holiday Class at Online Card Classes as a guest artist. Since I was in a holiday mood, I decided to use the traditional Christmas colors for today’s projects – something you can send to your beloved family or friends during winter holidays! πŸ™‚

I started by stamping one geometric image from the Geometric Flowers stamp set repeatedly with Forest Glades Ink on A2 sized green cardstock to create my own pattern.

I colored my images partially with the Forest Glades marker from the Artist Markers Set A. Then I added some dots between the images with a white gel pen and adhered some gemstones to the center of each image.

I die cut the letters, X and O, out of Gold Foil cardstock using the Bold Alphabet die set and attached die-cut letters on the card front using foam tape.

Next, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Halftone Hearts stamp set with Pure White embossing powder on a piece of Dark Gray cardstock.

After cutting my sentiment in a thin banner, I foam mounted it over my die-cut letters.

This card features many different techniques: stamped background, tone-on-tone stamping, partial coloring, die cutting, dotting, and heat embossing. However, it’s super easy to make. πŸ™‚

Giveaway

I’m giving away one $15 gift certificate to the Altenew online store. Leave a comment below telling me what’s your favorite color combo at the moment. I will announce one lucky winner on Friday, September 8th. Good luck!

That’s all for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!

    May, these are very striking cards and love the gold XO with the gray card stock, white-embossed sentiment. My favorite rich color combo right now is shiny gold on Kraft, and I can’t wait to create a card using it. Thanks for the chance to win an Altenew GC!

    I used to like pink. I wanted everything in pink as much as I can. But now, I like aqua turquoise color with white combination the most.
