Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Dahlia Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

7 July 2020


Welcome to July's Craft-A-Flower Dahlia Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Virginia Lu's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.



The Craft-A-Flower sets are such fun and I especially like this one because of it's larger bloom. I used a subtle patterned paper from the Celebrate 6X6 paper pad and added some older cardstock papers in terracotta and pink colours.


I started by layering the darkest shade, then the lightest and then the in-between colour. For the leaves I went with some hand-painted ones to contrast with the die-cut flower.

To finish the card off, I added a sentiment stamped on to a label from the Dot Labels Stamp Set and popped some enamel dots on. 

Prizes:

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card 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 Winners Page on 07/14/2020.


Your next stop is: Therese Calvird
