We have even included a realistic layered image of the Earth that you can stamp to represent the entire world as seen from space. Coordinating dies and a clever greenhouse stand-alone die finish off this exceptional collection!

Project Inspiration

These blooms are gorgeous and, of course, so easy to stamp out!  Let me show you how I made this card.

Altenew Gardens Around the WorldTo create this card, I took the Dotted Swirls Cover Plate and created that gorgeous debossed background.  I love the subtle swirl in that design.  It gives a fun and simple detail to the background of your cards.  Next, I stamped and die cut all of the blooms and leaves in the set.  They were so fun to arrange on the front of the card.  

AltenewMorningFlowers2To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from Sentiment Strips 2.  

Super clean and easy!

Altenew Gardens Around the WorldI hope you enjoyed today's card idea.  There will be LOTS more to see on today's hop.  Enjoy!

Free Gift for YOU!
