Altenew special Birthday!

Happy Monday crafty Friends! My project today features the Altenew Build-a-Flower: Rose stamp set.

This is a special project because it was one of the cards that I made for my Mom's 70th Birthday that we celebrated over the weekend. She loves yellow :)


I took me three tries to master the layers of this set because I used all five to give it as much depth as possible. I used a mix of the Altenew inks and some Hero Arts for the flower and the leaves from the same set. I die cut my images with the accompanying dies.  I then decided that I wanted to try my new Nuvo gilding flakes in the gold (I bought all three and they are simply beautiful).

I used my double sided tape in three different sizes to adhere the flakes. It makes a little bit of a mess but I think the result is worth it! I cleaned the remaining tiny flakes with a Swiffer cloth and it worked like a charm. I really love the effect of the gilding flakes!


I then took out an older (but one of my favourite) birthday sentiments from Papertrey Ink. I finished off the project with a scattering of sequins and gems by Studio Katia (new products for me).

Thanks so much for taking the time and have a great week!
