Altenew Build-A-Flower: Narcissus Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

 Happy February, friends!

It's time to share another exciting Altenew Build-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Build-A-Flower Narcissus with a blog hop!


If you arrive from the blog of Jaycee Gaspar, you are in the right place.
 Please visit Altenew Card Blog for ideas and inspiration. 

I stared out with stamping the Narcissus Flowers in pink, light coral and yellow.

These layering flowers are easy to distinguish based one the shapes.

Once I have two flowers, leaves and stems, I worked on the arrangement.

To keep the card light and less bulky, I masked the background (Mix and Match Frames Die) and applied blue ink. You can use Simple Frame Stencil (linked below) as well for masking.

I then ran the Dotted Tile Debossing Cover Die through the die cut machine.
The beauty of the Dotted Tile Debossing Cover Die adds subtle details and textures.

Beautiful card Virginia! The pierced background adds the perfect amount of depth to make the florals pop! Love this narcissus set, the flower is large enough to be the center of attention in a card or to create beautiful Scrapbook LOs and the sentiments are must haves. Thanks for the inspiration!
