Hello Sunshine - Altenew Card for DBC

by - January 05, 2018

Hi everyone! Ashlea here, and I am so excited for my very first post for Drive By Crafts.

Today I'm showcasing this beautiful and whimsical floral set by Altenew. There are TONS of flowers and leaves included in this set and it was quite difficult deciding what to do with them because of all of the possibilities! Originally, I planned on making a bit of a DIY floral card stock but changed my mind when I realized something pretty great...


All of these flowers and leaves are slightly curved in opposite directions which makes it absolutely perfect for creating wreaths like this one. It was such a breeze to stamp these flowers individually based on the way their curve was. Its almost as if it was set up for me. Once I had my wreath shape I used some Zig Clean Color markers and a water brush to color in my flowers. I knew I would use the sentiment You Make My World Brighter, so I stuck to brighter colors for the flowers. I used a large round brush to carefully splatter some black watercolor directly onto the card front to give a more crafted look.

I embossed the Hello Sunshine sentiment with Hero Arts gold embossing powder and used their white powder to emboss the smaller banner sentiment onto some black card stock. Finally, I finished off the card with some Nuvo Jewel drops and adhered the card to a gray card base.

I hope that you've gotten some inspiration from this card! Let me know if you've decided to give this set a try and how your creation turned out! See you soon :)
