Altenew Craft-A-Flower Sunburst Azalea Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

 Welcome to the blog hop for the release of Altenew's beautiful new Craft-A-Flower Sunburst Azalea layering die set!

You should have arrived here from the blog of Nandini Karmarkar.  If you need to start at the beginning, head over to the Altenew Card Blog so you don't miss any of the beautiful inspiration for this beautiful new Craft-A-Flower!

Don't forget that you can subscribe to Altenew's Monthly Subscription Plan for each new Craft-A-Flower set that is released.  You will be guaranteed a spot in the monthly releases and will receive a set each month - at a specially discounted price! ($35.99 reduced to $29.99).

Check out my card details below!

First I created my card base by die cutting the Grid Cover die twice from 80# Neenah.  I added some Stick-It double-sided adhesive to one of the pieces before die cutting it to make adhering the two layers together easier.  Next I adhered the die cut to my top folding card base.

I die cut the beautiful Craft-A-Flower: Sunburst Azalea flower layers from white card stock, and some pink card stock from the Cherry Blossom Gradient Cardstock set.  Following the included layering guide, I adhered the layers together.  I did use a few Copic markers on the stamen pieces so they would stand out a bit more.  Then I die cut the leaves from some Green Meadows Gradient Cardstock and used some green Copics to add shading.

I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Builder stamp set in black ink and trimmed them into strips.  I added foam tape to the back of the sentiments and two of the flowers.  After deciding on my arrangement, I adhered the flowers and sentiment and added glue to the leaves to adhere.

I decided I wanted a bit of sparkle (which I wish showed in the photos) and swiped a clear glitter pen on the white layers of the flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Be sure to leave a comment here for more chances to win an awesome prize!

The next stop in the hop is the lovely and talented Bridget Casey!
