Altenew Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to the blog hop celebrating Altenew's release of the Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy!

You should have arrived from the wonderful blog of Linda Westfall.  If you need to start from the beginning, head over to the Altenew Card Blog.  The complete blog hop list is posted at the end!

This beautiful Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy is part of Altenew's Craft-A-Flower Monthly Subscription Plan.  When signed up, you are guaranteed a spot in Altenew's monthly Craft-A-Flower release and will receive a set each month - at a specially discounted price! ($35.99 --> $29.99)


I was in the mood for coloring this time so I pulled out my markers and had lots of relaxing coloring time!  Check out the details below.

First, I die cut all of the dies for the Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy from 80# white cardstock.  I used my Copic markers to color all of the parts.  I layered each one to see where to add my darker shading on the first and second layers for a more dimensional look.  

Next I followed the included layering guide and adhered each layer to create my flowers.  I added a drop of glue to the top of the stems to adhere them to the flowers.

I created my card base by layering some kraft cardstock and white cardstock that I embossed with the Deck Planks 3D embossing folder.  The white layer was trimmed to 4" x 5-¼".  For the sentiment, I chose one from my very first Altenew set I bought (and still a much loved favorite) called Beautiful Day.  I stamped it in black ink, trimmed it and adhered it to the card with some foam tape.

For some sparkle, I swiped a clear glitter pen over the flower petals!  I wish photos showed it better!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you will leave a comment here for your chance to win an awesome prize from Altenew, and then continue on the hop for more beautiful inspiration!
