I couldn’t help myself in adding sparkle and shine to this card by using glitter paper. (I have an obsession with the glittery stuff lately) Using the different shades of purple glitter paper and the layering guide (https://altenew.com/products/craft-a-flower-orion-geranium-layering-die-set) this beauty came together quickly. I used some textured paper in the green leaves just to add a bit more texture.
Let”s look at it close up — oh, how it stands out against the black!
Perhaps you don’t wan t to use glitter paper…here is an example with the New Purple cardstock by Altenew.
I splattered some blue iridescent spray on the white background for texture. Just a plain circle in the center to offset the layered flower. Using the Altenew Green Meadows cardstock for leaves and Tiny Sentiment: Hello die the card was completed. It is just as stunning as the first card.
Your next stop on this magical road is to hop over to the wonderful and always inspiring Erum Tasneem.
