If you came here from Christine Pennington’s blog, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to Altenew Card Blog and start from there, as you won't want to miss anything!

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 04/13/2021 for a chance to win.

For today’s blog hop I used the beautiful Craft-A-Flower: Cistus Layering Die Set to create a CAS card for a friend.

I cut out my flowers and leaves out of white cardstock and used Altenew markers to colour the die-cuts. I used pink shades from Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set F for flowers and green markers from Cosmic Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set A.

dear friend

My last step was to stamp sentiments from Thinking of You Stamp Set in black.

dear friend

That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is Seeka

Here is the full line up for the blog hop today.


Thanks for stopping by today!
