Hello. I can’t believe it’s been 6 days since I last posted. I have been preparing some DT cards so I have been crafting for the beginning of future challenges, but today I have a card to share using Altenew 3D floral dies:
I used the packs of Altenew Gradient card stock for the flowers and leaves. I like that each packet comes with four tones of the same colour and obviously this makes it easier when putting together 3D flowers like this.
I used the purple pack for the flowers, and the yellow pack for the leaves – as you can see. This took a lot of die cutting – a lot. I did manage to cut several layers in different colours on my Gemini Junior plate at once, but still – a lot of die cutting.
There is a blue striped circle beneath the flowers and leaves – again from Altenew, but I also added a smaller white circle as I felt the flowers and leaves kinda got lost.
I was going to add just the one flower, but seeing as how I made several of the smaller flowers too – I added them to make a bundle or bunch.
The most difficult part of this was the die set – there are lots of dies in this set, and it took me a while to match the four dies for each flower with the correct flower – despite having the card and web site open in front of me. I’ve sorted them onto a magnet sheet now – but it took me a while……
The sentiment is also from Stampin Up ‘Peaceful Moments‘ and has some lovely sentiments.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – purple, yellow, blue
Crafters Castle – anything goes
Aud Sentiments – anything goes with a sentiment
All Fun Challenges – anything goes
