Altenew Build A Flower Rose Handmade Card-3Build-A-Flower Rose Card

Hello, crafty friends! Do you remember this card(above) that I created using the Build-A-Flower: Rose Set from Altenew in September 2017? I really enjoyed playing with the color layering technique and building my own floral arrangement.

Inspired by my Build-A-Flower Rose Card, I created another card using the same color layering technique, but this time I tried to achieve a bold, striking look of my floral arrangement against the black background.

I started by stamping my flowers and leaves from the Flower Arrangement stamp set using the Altenew Crisp Inks on a piece of white cardstock. Here is the list of ink colors I used for stamping:

Then I die cut my images using the Spellbinders Platinum die cut machine using the coordinating dies from the Flower Arrangement die set.

I also die cut “hugs” 5 times from the Script Words die set out of Altenew gold mirror paper using the Altenew Mini Blossom die cutting machine.

After adding tiny dots to the entire background of my black card base using a white gel pen, I mounted my die cut elements on the card front using 3M foam tape to give some dimension.

I made a video tutorial to show you how to make my card from start to finish. You can watch it above or in HD on YouTubeMake sure to watch the video until the end to take a glance at my craft space as well.

    Love this card! I love leaves done in Altenew’s grey inks. I haven’t tried it layered onto black, though – I definitely need to give it a go! As for my craft table – if I don’t clear it off between cards, I wouldn’t have any space to do anything more!

    I am in love with your card. I love the Flower Arrangement stamp set and love how you arranged the flowers and leaves. The white dotted background is so pretty with the flowers. I am a messy crafter and when I am working on cards my drawers are open, stuff is everywhere. I am going to try to remember to put all the pieces in a tray like you showed. Still looking for a leaf die it I lost last week that I had colored and set aside to use. I do put some stuff back at the end of my crafting time but alas, not everything.
