Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hello friends!
s

Today we have a SUPER special blog hop to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Altenew!
The entire celebration starts from April 2rnd and today is day 3! If you come from the blog of My Sweet Petunia, you are in the right place! You can find out the celebration over Altenew Card Blog.

This is me with my favorite cards in 2019

I can't even tell you how proud and happy I am to be part of the Altenew Card Design Team.
I joined the team in Jan. 2017 and I have been blessed to create with Altenew's cutting-edge and innovative products. Today's card is all about that!

Altenew-BookClubStampDie-Virginia#1

This card has a bit of everything I love about Altenew: lots of layering! 
 I also want to incorporate as many fabulous Altenew goodness as possible in this card.
Altenew-BookClubStampDie-Virginia#3

Let's do a little counting: cover die, stamp and coordinating die, inks, spray mist, embossing powder, and pattern paper! I'd say Altenew is pretty amazing to have all the products that any card-maker/crafters would love to have under their arsenal.

Altenew-BookClubStampDie-Virginia#2

I also incorporated my favorite thing in this card: hand-stitching!
This coral color is perfect with gold trims and gold embellishments.
Altenew-BookClubStampDie-Virginia#4
I hope you love what I create!

 If you love Versatile Vases Stamp, Die and Stencil  Versatile Vases Stamp/Die Bundle
