Kindness is Everywhere...

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share a card with lots of details.
Yup, working on details is kind of "my thing".
It's what make handmade cards SING, I find....  😁


 I made the following card when last month's Build-A-Flower Carnation from Altenew was released. 
Altenew File

I love the polished look with the matching stamp and die. 
 There is a bit of shine and glitter as I emboss the ENTIRE flower with Translucent Embossing Powder
Altenew File2

I can't help adding dry-embossed details with the Carnation leaves.
All you need is the Tan Embossing Mat with your die cut machine.

I followed the sentiment and....focused on the word "sprinkle". 
Therefore, I sprinkled the splatter EVERYWHERE.
 I hope this card encourages and lifts your spirit in this cold January day!

I love the carnation card and am happy to say that was one of the stamp sets I just ordered . The cool thing about carnations is that you can make them about any color you would like.

You know I'm a sucker for dry embossing and the glow from the carnation is gorgeous thanks to the embossing powder. The sentiment is perfect because you used those lovely splatters. Such a very pretty card.
