Altenew: Build-A-Flower Carnation Card + Giveaway

by May Park-

Hello, crafty friends! Have you checked out new Build-A-Flower: Carnation Set from Altenew? With this Build-A-Flower: Carnation, anyone can achieve a realistic look as it gives extra depth to the carnation image with four layers.

I started by stamping the sentiments in the middle of my card front with Altenew Permanent Black Ink. FYI, I used the following stamp sets from Altenew to create my own sentiment: Smile MoreHug Me, and Halftone Hearts.

Then I stamped the multi-step carnation images, leaves, and a cluster of tiny flowers from Build-A-Flower: Carnation around my sentiments to create my own floral background.

FYI, here is the list of Altenew Crisp Dye Inks I used for each image.

I made some stamping mistakes while masking the images. So I hid them with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Mix. I think it would have been look better with sequins. 

By the way, my husband said that I stamped too many sentiments which made my card to look so busy. What do you think?

Giveaway

I’m giving away one $20 gift certificate to the Altenew online store. Leave a comment below and I will announce one lucky winner on Tuesday, December 19th. Good luck!

    Not to say your husband was wrong (cause I feel bad saying it), but he is! Lol
    It’s perfection May! I just love how you stamped the babies breath in gray and kinda framed the sentiments in an almost perfect square! 😍
