Sending Hugs Card With Vintage Flowers

Hello, again, crafty friends!

Today I got to play with a new layered flower stamp set from Altenew that came yesterday – just in time for today’s class on layering! I’m sure glad to have a MISTI stamping tool to use with these! Once you take the time to line them up, you can crank out several cards and save time!

I took Altenew’s inspiration photo for the September challenge: From Places Abroad – Windsor Castle, and used the royal reds and golds.


I also used Winnie & Walter’s World Cardmaking Day Sketch by Gayatri:


Putting them together, I came up with this Royal card:


I didn’t have any gold paper handy, so I just ran Versamark ink over the word ‘hugs’ after it was cut out in the metallic red cardstock and heat embossed it. I love those elegant layers of golds and reds – take a closer look:
