Altenew: Stamp here, Stamp/Die Combo here.

I combined all my favorite media (alcohol inks, vellum) and techniques (embossing, die-cutting, dry-embossing) in this card.

you make me smile

Noticed that there are two kinds of embossing in this design? Gold and white.

I created the background with the smallest stamps from "Happy Bloom".

This is my first card with this stamp/die combo.
Completely different, huh?
