I'm always amazed at how gorgeous Altenew's layering die sets are and this Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup is another awesome set! I love the layers of this sweet flower and the included layering guide makes lining them up a snap!
I created my card base first by stenciling Dark Night ink through the Halftone Stencil with a blender brush. Then I trimmed it to 4" x 5-¼". Next I inked up the edges of a top-folding card with Dark Night ink and adhered the stenciled panel to it.
I think it's awesome how there's a layering sentiment included in this set! I inked up a piece of scrap card stock with Dark Night ink and die cut the sentiment shadow. I die cut three "thank you" sentiments, adhered them together and attached them to the shadow.
To create the flowers I began by die cutting the layers from the lightest cardstock that's in the Summer Afternoon Gradient Cardstock set. Then I used a few yellow alcohol markers to add shading to each layer before adhering them together. I die cut the leaves from a few different green colored card stock in my stash. Then I created my flower arrangement on the card and adhered it with foam tape and liquid glue.
I love how this turned out and will definitely be using this beautiful Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup a lot!!

Your card is spectacular and so eye-catching. I really appreciate how you shaded various parts of the flower and using different color greens to create the leaves. The use of the half tone stencil provided a subtle background which added dimension and allowed the flower to pop. Super card! Definitely one of my favorites!ReplyDelete
