Card Tutorial

Now, it's time for an exciting card tutorial! Today, I have 2 cards to share with you featuring two of the new dies.

Altenew - Featured Sentiments Die - Stacked Diamonds Cover Die - Take 2 With Therese (card video)

First, I started with the Featured Sentiments Die Set.

I coordinated it with the Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set to create a repeated sentiment background.

Then, I added the Happy Birthday Die with a sub-sentiment from the Hello and Hugs Stamp Set.

My second card has an ombre-style background created with the Stacked Diamonds Cover Die.
