Altenew ECP (Level 1) – Easy Die Cutting Techniques

This is my 10th submission based on the class conducted by Yana Smakula. I am an ardent fan of her work and love whatever she does, so taking her class was a bonus. I have kept this card very basic and simple.

I have used Altenew Build-a-flower Morning Glory stamp set; Cube cover die and Label Love Stamp set for the sentiment.

I followed the layering guide for the Morning Glory stamp set and stamped the two flowers using the Deep Blue Seas mini ink cube set. I also stamped the leaves and stem using Green Valley mini ink cube set. As the Build-a-flower set already includes the co-ordinating dies, after all the stamping I used the same to cut all the images.

I did alter the stamped leaves a bit by sticking the individual leaves to the stem, which had two small leaves. I stuck the leaf on top of the calyx portion of the stem. This made sets of three leaves on a stem.

I also stamped and cut the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink and the Label Love stamp set.

To create some interest to the background of my flower arrangement, I used the Cube Cover die to create the background.

 I took an A2 size Neenah Solar white cardstock 110 lbs for the card base. Firstly, I adhered the Cube Cover die-cut to the card base. Then, I arranged the flowers and leaves, and finally used foam dots to mount the sentiment to the card.

To finish the card, I used some jewels.

Thank you for visiting and Happy Crafting….
