Altenew New Day Card Kit – Wood Veneers Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it's Therese and I am so happy to share some ideas today using the New Day Card Kit.

I have made two designs with the focus being using the wood veneers from the kit.  Firstly I changed the color of the veneer by adding black ink and heat embossing it with clear embossing powder.

Then I created a wood veneer window by highlighting the design paper and coloring it with Altenew's Artist Markers.  I used Altenew Jet Black ink to stamp the sentiment from the Floral Garden stamp set (which is the set that is included in the New Day Card Kit).  Both cards came together very easily.

For my second design I added color with the Artist Markers directly onto a different design paper and also onto one the cardstock die cut flowers from the kit.  I white heat embossed the sentiment on Jet Black Cardstock and framed it with a wood veneer.  And as a final embellishment I added some of the enamel dots from the kit.

I have linked a video below. So you can watch the process to see how it all came together.

I just had to see how you applied an acrylic sheet behind the die. LOL It was so cool and you only colored the background paper! I can’t wait to try this. Thanks so much. It was beautiful.

I know, the best thing is just how easy they came together and pretty much all from the one kit too!
