Altenew…Day 4

Anniversary Wishes Altenew

Hello and welcome to day 4 of my Altenew Week here on my blog.  Today’s card is one that I have made for my brother and sister-in-law for their anniversary in May using Painted Flowers and also Painted Butterflies stamps and dies.  I love the butterflies but just die-cut 2  and popped some foam tape on the back for some dimension. I also used Memento ink pads:  Tuxedo Black, New Sprout, Bamboo Leaf, Lulu Lavender and Sweet Plum. The strip of lilac cardstock is American Crafts and the stripe paper is from my stash but can’t remember who by!  The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I am really pleased how this turned out.  I think the secret to using Altenew stamps is to keep the cards quite simple and let the stamps do the talking!  I hope you can join me tomorrow for the last card in this Altenew week – I promise!  I appreciate you stopping by and for your lovely comments – thank you!  Take care – Karen 🙂

  3. I love that you added strips of paper and how they pick up the colors of the flowers and butterfly. A very special card for a special couple.
