Altenew Certified Educators Instagram Blog Hop

 Hello friends!


As one of the coordinators of Altenew Educators Certified Program (AECP), I am joining a fun blog hop where all Educators will be sharing our love for Altenew through our handmade goodness/creations! The hop starts from @altenewllc so make sure you start from the beginning! 

For my project, I am taking out my latest favorites and put them all on a card! All products are highlighted in grey and are listed at the end of this post.

Altenew-Our Friendship Blooms Stamp & Die Bundle-Ornamental Feature Embossing Folder-NavyGoldTrim Washi Tape 

 The bouquet from Our Friendship Blooms Stamp, Stencil  & Die Bundle was easy to create thanks to the stencils. I gold-embossed the entire image to give it a rich look!

I decided to add Versatile Vase 2 for the bouquet. To achieve the look of the glass vase, I used a piece of vellum  (colored in alcohol marker) for the front of the vase.

 This card is meant to be mail out in a letter-size envelope. You can use the Nesting Slim Rectangles Die. I simply measured the letter size envelope and cut it to 3 1/2" x 7 1/4"

 For the finishing touches, I partially dry-emboss the card front with Ornamental Feature Embossing Folder. I then added a piece of Navy Gold Trim Washi Tape for the extra interest.

I just love this card. I just finished the blog hop and must say there were some beautiful cards! This one is at the very top. I love all of the details you add in your cards. The vellum vase is lovely and so is the embossed doily. Love that touch.

Beautiful. I like the embossing, gold embossing and use of vellum.

Great combination with the embossing. Thanks for the reminder.
