This card features a sentiment from Birthday Bash, paired with images from the set Persian Motifs.  The flowers were embossed in white onto smooth bristol, then watercolored in vibrant blues and greens.  To bring attention to the sentiment, I adhered an open die cut frame with foam tape.

To make this fun party card, I took out the watercolor paints again- only this time I was a lot less precise!  Paint was splattered all over the top of the card once the streamers were painted, and the sentiment was stamped three times (generational stamping).   The card is finished off with some black strips of cardstock.

The front features strips of patterned paper and a semi circle of vellum attached to the right hand side of the card.   The noisemaker was stamped, colored with Copic Markers, then cut out and applied to the card with foam tape.  To suspend the noisemaker on the inside, I adhered thick thread to the back and attached it to each side of the card.  I hope the pictures help show you how it was assembled!


We would LOVE to see what you create with this stamp set!  Please upload your creations to our Flickr Gallery!  You can also submit your creations to our brand new Altenew Challenge.  Info can be found HERE.  Have a great weekend!
