Altenew February Inspiration Challenge

Birthday Card

Hi crafty friends,

Today, I am sharing this card for Altenew February 2021 Inspiration Challenge. Let’s dive into it.

I created the background with Finnabair Rust Effect Paste in Gold Rust and Green on a 3 3/4” x 5” panel, set aside let it completely dry.

After the panel is dry, I added Distress Crackle Paste with Altenew Wavy Grid stencil to add some dimension. While waiting the panel to dry, I used Altenew Linear Crossroads and Gem Frame die, cut out with Matte Mirror cardstock. I cut out the pansy flowers and leaves with colored cardstock. I also used some vellum paper for leaves. Afterward, I assembled, glued all the die cut pieces on the panel, and added some splatter with metallic gold and white gouache. I decided to add little more interests on the panel, I rubbed some distress ink into the crack of the crackle to emphasize the texture. Finally, popped the sentiment in the center of the panel and my card is finished.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
