Altenew Background Check – It’s All About the Background

Altenew's Majestic Bouquet layering stamp and die bundle card in blues.

The Educators at Altenew are hopping on Intstagram and the theme is “Background Check – it’s All About the Background“!  I wanted to combine fun backgrounds with Majestic Bouquet, my favorite floral stamp layering set from the past year. I think it is just gorgeous done in blues!

For my background I used Altenew’s Cross Stitch Cover Die . I ran the cover die through my die-cutting machine and then cut out a tag using Altenew’s Terrific Tags die set. The little perferations add just the right amount of interest to showcase the beautiful floral bloom.

Supplies used card #1:

Other than the enamel dots, all that was needed was a bit of ribbon or twine.

For my second card I went BOLD! I love the gorgeous red against the white textured background. I die cut the tag first and then embossed the tag so I wouldn’t loose the lovely detailed embossing. I got a great impression by embossing on 80# cardstock

Supplies Used for Card #2:

Altenew Majestic Bouquet + Majestic Bloom 3D Embossing Folder handmade card.

Adding twine or ribbon is easy: Double the twine and poke the two ends through the hole. Next, slip the ends through the looped middle and then pull flat. Neat, easy and functional.
