Build-a-flower: Carnation and giveaway

13 December 2017

This month's build-a-flower set features a beautiful carnation. The meaning of carnation includes fascination, distinction, and love, and its use in art and decor dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. With their ruffled appearance and classic beauty, these flowers possess a charm and allure that continues to captivate people around the globe. Alongside the multi-step carnation, we have included two-step leaves, berries, and a cluster of tiny flowers that can be used as filler images for your flower arrangements! The set also includes three kindness sentiments that are great for any occasion.

I love this set and I created two cards with it. I started with a classic design and added some detail by embossing the kraft card base. As I has some leaves left over I thought I'd create a second card. I created a Christmas card turning my leaf into a Christmas tree.


Stop over on the Altenew card blog and scrapbook blog to leave a comment as there are two 30$ gift vouchers up for grabs on both.


Leave a comment here on my blog by December 18th and I will draw one lucky winner who will get a 20$ gift voucher to the Altenew Store.

Wow Lilith. I really love this red carnation! What colours did you use?
I love watching FB live and seeing everyone’s creations, but I often have to do a school run in between so I listen on the way and rewind later lol

I am really loving your cards. I love the embossed background of card one, it gives such a boost to the card, adding texture and interest. And the 2nd card is awesome. I often see only the flashy stamps in a set and this card reminds me that there is more beauty in these stamp sets than I see at first glance. Thanks for the reminder to look at my stamps differently!
