Have you been keeping up with our #AltenewFloweroftheMonth challenges?
Today, we are announcing our March Flower of the Month! (Scroll down to see the winners for our January and February challenges.)
As you know, at Altenew, we are all about flowers, so we thought that it was only fitting to celebrate 2021 by honoring the gorgeous florals you love.
Watch the video below or on YouTube to learn all about this month's challenge:
Each month, we will focus on one flower and challenge you to create your own paper crafted creations with an Altenew product featuring that flower all month long. You may create a handmade card, scrapbook layout, journal page, home decor piece, or any other project of your choice.
Then, post your projects on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #AltenewFloweroftheMonth for the chance to win one of three $30 gift certificates to the Altenew shop. (Your account should be public so we can see your entries.) There is no limit to the number of entries you can submit. The more projects you create, the more chances you have to win! Be sure to use at least one Altenew product in your project (it doesn't have to be an Altenew flower!), and submit your entries by March 31, 2021.
This month, we are featuring DAFFODILS, the March birth flower and 10th wedding anniversary flower.
Also known as narcissus, daffodils symbolize rebirth, new beginnings, hope, and friendship. They come in a range of colors such as yellow, orange, pink, peach, white, red, and green.
Don't forget to check out our featured Altenew products for the March flower of the month:
You can use our Build-A-Flower: Daffodil Layering Stamp & Die Set, Paint-A-Flower: Daffodil Outline Stamp Set, or Wishing You Stamp & Die Bundle to create beautiful floral projects for this month's challenge. However, you are not limited to using these products. If you prefer to use another daffodil-focused stamp set or even want to draw daffodils yourself, you may do so!
Whether you prefer layering or coloring, our Design Team members have created tons of beautiful projects on our blogs and YouTube channel that you can check out for inspiration.
