Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway

 Hello friends!

I am happy to be part of the special Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop. Not only will you be inspired by the gorgeous projects, you will also get a chance to win an Altenew gift certificate!! 


You can find inspiration and information at Altenew Card Blog HERE

The goal of this hop is to send cards to the elderly in the retirement homes, shelters and shut-ins. We hope this is to show our love to them and that they are not forgotten. It is even more important during the pandemic.

If you arrive from the blog of Tenia Nelson, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. 

Altenew-Vintage Garden Stamp-Scalloped Scallops Die-NarrowBrick Stencil 
I created this card for my mom in Taiwan. The last time I visited my Mom was in 2017. It is long overdue and with the pandemic, I am not able to see her.

I packed in a lot of details in this card and keep it flat for easy mailing. I applied Narrow Brick Stencil to the background to add some textures.

The Vintage Garden Stamp & Die and Coloring Stencil makes it super easy to color the large flowers. It took just about a a few minutes to color the floral images. AND the depth of these flowers are incredible thanks to the deeply etched design in this stamp.

Of course, I had to add a bit of gold. My mom loves a little bit of bling and this really makes the card shine! The Creative Edge:  Scalloped Scallops Die Set is perfect for giving your designs an extra edge! I added a few extra sequins to give it extra oomph!

The sentiment "mom" is from Tall Alpha Lower Case Die Set. "What would I do without you" is part of the Vintage Garden Stamp & Die and Coloring Stencil

This is a beautiful card, Virginia! I do hope it doesn't
take too long to get to her! Four years is a long time not
to see her! I don't think I went more than 18 months;
either they came here or we went to England!
