Easy Die Cutting Techniques Class with Altenew

Here I am again today sharing a card I made for an assignment Altenew Educator Certification Program.  This class was Easy Die Cutting Techniques.

The products used for today's card are the Simple Flowers stamp and die sets from Altenew.  The inks used for the flowers are Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch and Pool Party by Stampin' Up!  For the leaves and flower stems I used Firefly from Altenew and Soft Suede from Stampin' Up!

First I stamped the flower then cut them out.  I added the stems before die-cutting.  The white layer was then embossed using the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!  I attached it to the turquoise card base and added the flowers back to the spots where they were cut.  I used foam tape to pop them up.  The leaves where stamped and die-cut them glued down to the embossed layer.

The sentiment was heat embossed using Black Embossing Powder and added to the front using foam tape.  For the finishing touch, I added some Crystal Clear Droplets.

Here is a close up that shows off the embossing done with the Subtle  Embossing Folder.  It gives just a hint of texture.

Thanks for visiting today.  I look forward to seeing you again at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe.
