3D Floral Focus Altenew

August 28, 2019

I am so happy to be continuing my journey to become a Altenew instructor. My blog now has my new Level two badge. It so exciting! I have really enjoyed being on this journey. I just finished Therese Calvert’s 3D Floral Focus Class. I decided use my Hibiscus Garden 3D set and I totally love it. There are so many fun leaves to pick from! I made two cards and I could not pick what one I liked best, so I will post both.

First thing I do when I open a new die set is, get out magnetic sheets and place dies on the sheet. Then draw around each one. I also make note how many dies are on each sheet. Doing this really helps me keep up with all the dies and not to lose any.

Next thing I did was cut out all my dies. It is super fun to play with all kinds of different colors.

I keep my die cutter to the right side of me while I am doing my projects.

I like to lay out all the precut images in a row. It really helps when I put them together.

I absolutely love using this Scor-tape double sided adhesives. It comes in different sizes. I order mine from Amazon.

I love how the dies come with assembly instructions that are so easy to follow!

I decided to make square note cards that can be used as I need them. I keep a box of extra sediments already made, I will add one if I need it!

I like to use 3m tape to pop up at least one of the flowers it makes it look 3d and adds visual interest.

I purchased a fun paper pad at the local craft store that looks like it has been water colored. In Therese’s class, she suggested to try printed paper.

I absolutely love how these leaves turned out!

I also used a pink paper that has a subtle variation for the middle pink layer.

I still can’t decide which card I like best. What do you think? I hope you enjoyed my cards. Until next time happy crafting….
