Altenew: Beautiful BirthDay Card

 "Beautiful Wishes" card handmade by Maria Byrd | CraftsyByrd.blogspot.com | Altenew Beautiful Day, Mama Elephant Dandelion. 2019.

A sweet floral card made for a dear friend's recent 60th birthday using Altenew's Beautiful Day stamp and die bundle, mini ink cube sets, and halftone stencil.  We live hours apart and thus rarely see each other.  So it's a real treat for both of us to meet, have a coffee, and catch up.  It's a wonderful feeling to see her and be able to hand her the card in person.

The flowers and sentiment are from my favorite set Beautiful Day by Altenew, stamped in black ink and cut with coordinating dies.  Altenew's Mini Ink Cubes either in a set of 3 or 4 makes coloring in layers a breeze.  I used the lightest color for the first layer and the darkest last for smaller details.  The circle backdrop is created with Altenew's Halftone Stencil and Distress Mini Ink in Carved Pumpkin applied with foam blending tool.

Tip:  If you're thinking of buying the stamps, I suggest purchasing the dies also.  This is a layering stamp and the lines on the image are not closed, so ScanNCut2 won't recognize the shapes.  You can try connecting the lines with a pen or pencil and see if that works.  Though I've never tried that trick with this stamp set yet.

Thank you for visiting!
