Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup Layering Die Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi! Hope you are enjoying the blog hop celebrating the release of the Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup. You must have arrived here from Tricia Schaden's blog.

My first instinct was to choose yellow for my buttercups. When I researched the flowers a bit more, I realized that buttercup flowers can also be white, red, orange, pink, etc. So I decided to be really adventurous and use other colors.


Instead of using plain colored cardstock, I opted to use pattern papers from the Wildflower Collection that released earlier this month. You can find the card I made for that release here

First I trimmed the sea-green paper from the 6 x 6-inch pack and die-cut one side with the Creative Edges: Lace die. I adhered some moss green paper to a top folding white card base and popped up my trimmed panel over it with some foam tape. I used the Moss ink and the Sunburst Stencil for a little texture over the panel. I die-cut the flower and bud parts out of different pattern papers from the pack and assembled them. I also inked the bottoms with some Velvet ink. The leaves and the sentiment were cut out of scraps of green paper. 


Once I was satisfied with the arrangement of my die-cuts, I used liquid glue to stick everything in place.  To finish, I added small pearls as flower centers. Here is a look at the completed card.


I really love the way this card turned out. The soft colors remind me of the beautiful Art Deco era.
