Happiness is a handmade card



Altenew Extra Special card using Kraft

Hi everyone, I'm over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with a card using Altenew Extra Special and Kraft card stock for a warm, neutral look.

I know I've become a bit obsessed with this stamp set (it's something about those vintage lines!) and I promise to move on to something different next week ;-)

For this card, I stamped the main floral image and its layers using water-based dye inks, and die cut it out using the matching dies.

I then stamped a background panel using My Favorite Things Distressed Stripes Background Stamp and Versamark on Kraft and die cut it out using one of the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles.

I mounted this panel onto a wider white card base, and added the word "wonderful" from Concord and 9th Wonderful Words Die using white card stock and white fun foam for dimension. I tucked "you're" underneath stamped from Mama Elephant Labeled Messages. I then added the floral die cut, letting it pop off the side and top of the card slightly for a looser and more informal look.

That's all for this week - thanks for visiting and have a great few days until we reach the weekend!
