Altenew Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

1 May 2019

Welcome to the Build-a-Flower Snapdragon Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Svitlana Shayevich's you are right on track. You can the hop over on the .

Altenew's popular Build-A-Flower stamp and die sets are released monthly and celebrate the beauty of a wide variety of flowers! Each stamp set is bundled with its coordinating dies, making it simple for you to start creating right away. Mix and match the sets to build a bouquet or an entire garden. This month's flower is the Snapdragon.

I created a card this time using the colours from the Green Meadows and Golden Sunset Ink Sets. 



 For contrast, I added a patterned paper from the Essential Black&White Paper pack and for extra detail, I cut a strip of lace using the Creative Edges Lace Die.

I love it when elements pop over the edges of a card so I let the flowers do so. It isn't practical if you want to use a standard envelope but I just use a larger one. 

Prizes:
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win.

Altenew will also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 5/10/2019. So leave a comment here for an extra chance to win.

Really different and unique. i love the color scheme and I also love how the flowers are coming off the card edge also. I just use a larger envelope that is usually decorated to match the card. I really like the look of lace draping on your card too.
