With A Grateful Heart - Altenew Carnations For Timeout Challenge #107

I have used the stamps for my no.1 favourite flowers for making today's card for the current timeout challenge...it took me a while to get my hands on this Altenew Carnation stamp set but  when I finally did,I stamped the very first flowers in shades of red which was just perfect for the yellow and teal stripy stencilled background....

My card is created for the theme of spring for this challenge but I wasn't able to incorporate the optional twist of the one layer card this time...


I started by die cutting the front panel using a dotted rectangle die and then used the Altenew classy stripes stencil and Distress Inks to create the background...I have used squeezed lemonade and peacock feather shades here and also splattered some water for effect....I then adhered this panel to a plain white top fold card base..

I stamped the layering Carnation flowers and leaves on a separate piece of white cardstock and die cut them using the coordinating dies..I have used various Altenew crisp dye inks for these....I also  stamped a few other flowery images from this stamp set using black ink and coloured them in with my markers before die cutting them as well...once I was happy with the layout of the flowers and leaves,I adhered them to my card...I have used some foam squares under one of the flowers for a bit of dimension...

I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on a black strip and adhered it to my card as well...and finally I have added some black Nuvo drops to embellish my card...
