Altenew November 2019 Gradient Cardstock Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

14 November 2019

Welcome to the Altenew Gradient Cardstock Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Keeway Tsao's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

For today's hop, I created two cards. For the first one, I paired the cardstock with the Layered Rose Die. These cardstocks come in packs of 3 or 4 colour combinations that are perfect for layering. No need to worry about finding matching colours!

For my first card, I cut out two of the three layers from the Layered Rose Die Set. You can layer them but I decided to use them separately. For the leaves, I used some stickers from the Live Your Dream Collection.

 My second card was such fun to make. I layered pieces of cardstock in 1/2" strips and glued them down. Then I cut the assembled piece in two, flipped it and layered it on a card base. To add some detail I used a border punch on the front of the card flap and adhered a strip of coloured cardstock behind it.

These cardstock packs are the perfect addition to your craft space. They match the Altenew inks colours and markers and make crafting so much easier.
