Welcome to the Altenew Craft-A-Flower & Gradient Cardstock release bloghop. You should have arrived here from Sandhya Iyer if not you can go back to the start of the hop at any time by visiting the Altenew Card Blog.
Today's release not only consitst of the Craft-A-Flower Cistus but also four new sets of Gradient cardstock.
I have made two cards using the Craft-A-Flower Cistus (unfortunately my Gradient cardstock is still stuck in customs)
My first card is a stunning Monogram style card using the Dancing Peacock 3D Embossing Folder for the background. I used the Mega A die cut in black and heat embossed a white sentiment from the Sentiment Strips stamp set. The CAF Cistus was cut using Green Meadows Gradient Cardstock, Summer Afternoon Gradient Cardstock and the Shades of Purple gradient cardstock.
Craft-A-Flower Cistus cut from card which I sprayed with Altenew's Altenew's Metallic Spray Inks. I sat the floral elements against a background which I created with the Layered Geo cover die A and Layered Geo cover die B cut form black card. I added a sentiment using the Essential Sentiment Strip Dies and Sentiment Strip stamps.
Your next stop is Laurie Willison
The CAF Cistus can be brought together with two packs of Gradient cardstock in a Bundle saving you 5%.
