Simple Beauty With Altenew

Hi Crafty Friends!

Ali here with two cards made using the wonderful Sayings from the beautiful Wings of Hope Stamp set from Altenew along with Persian Motifs and Beautiful Day stamp sets, also from Altenew.The sentiments of this set offer both support and sympathy - two of the reasons why I love being able to handmake a special card for a recipient. 
 Both cards are simple but celebrate the classic beauty of these sets.
The first card is on a kraft card base. I stamped the sentiment from the wings of hope set on some kraft cart in versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I trimmed it and backed with a piece of vellum.
I then stamped the flowers from Persian Motifs on some velum with versamark ink and white embossed, making sure the heat gun was quite hot and heating from the back of the vellum to prevent buckling.I die-cut the images.I arranged the sentiment in the middle of the card and adhered with 3D foam. I arranged the flowers around the sentiment and trimmed excess.
The second card, I used a similar technique using the flowers and leaves from Beautiful Day. I adhered the sentiment with 3D foam and positioned on the bottom right corner of the card and the flowers to the left of the sentiment.
I finished both cards with Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets.
Hope you enjoyed these cards, their simplicity and the beautiful words from Wings of Hope.
See you again!
Ali xx
