How to Make a Bright Floral Birthday Card Using Altenew’s Project Kit

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello, friends!

Svitlana is here. Today, I’m sharing a bright floral birthday card made using the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Never Stop Dreaming and featuring a very spring-y mint and pink color combo.

The card was very quick to make and even quicker to plan – the Project Kit already had all supplies I needed.

First, I made the ink-pressed background using the embossing folder from the kit. I inked one side of it with the Volcano Lake Dye Ink, placed a white panel into the folder, and ran it through my die-cutting machine. I chose the side of the folder where areas between flowers are raised to be inked. So, I ended up having a mint background with white roses.

Next, I made the floral element. First, I white embossed it onto white cardstock using the stamp set from the kit. After that, I quickly colored it using the matching stencil and the following dye inks – Blush, Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry. For inking, I used the Large Ink Blending Tool, as well as the Mini Blending Brushes.

I decided to leave the leaves white to coordinate with the white roses of the background, as well as to make the whole card lighter.

After that, I die-cut the floral element using the matching die. Originally, it was quite long; it would spread from the top part of the card to the bottom. But I wanted to cluster flowers in the middle, so I cut them into two pieces, which were popped up onto the panel.

The panel, in turn, was foam-mounted onto a white card base using the Instant Dimension Adhesive Foam Tape.

I made the sentiment strip by white embossing a stamp from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set onto a white cardstock strip and then coloring it by swiping the Volcano Lake Dye Ink onto it.
