***

As you probably might know already, clean and simple is my favourite style of cardmaking, these are a few of my favourite cards I made for Altenew last year:



For today's Blog Hop I created another simple birthday card using a few of my favourite Altenew products. 

I started by cutting Antique Engravings Cover Die out of white cardstock. Next, I stamped leaves from Leaf Clusters Stamp Set with green inks from Tropical Forest Crisp Dye Ink Oval Set and die cut them with coordinating dies. My last element was a flower from Craft-A-Flower: Cistus Layering Die Set cut out of white cardstock and coloured with Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set F

happy birthday

As a final step I stamped my sentiment from Birthday Builder Stamp Set, added some black ink splatters to the background and assembled all my elements. 

happy birthday


That's it for me. Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Kristina Werner!
