Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Orion Geranium Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

 Hello friends. The new Craft A Flower Orion Geranium from Altenew is so much fun to work with! I am participating in a fun hop featuring many talented designers. If you are hopping, you should have arrived from Jaycee Gaspar's blog. The entire hop starts HERE.

Altenew always provides great layering guides for their products!

Check out all the dimension created with the embossing folder, window and fun foam! As with all my Altenew posts, I started by die cutting the floral pieces so I could play with the arrangements. I used purple and green cardstock from my stash. The second layer and the word hello are cut from Stardream Metallic Amethyst Cardstock, one of my favs! Once I had the flowers cut and assembled, I started creating!

Check out the dimension created with the Mod Squares 3D Embossing Folder on White Classic Crest 80 lb Cardstock Prior to embossing, I die cut the window in the cardstock and a piece of white fun foam with a circle die.

Once the fun foam was attached to the embossed window piece, I attached it to the card base. I selected a purple geranium flower and attached it to the lower left section of the window. Hello from the Hello and Hugs sets is cut twice and layered prior to adding to the card.

The second card uses the Sea Shore Gradient Cardstock in addition to additional colors from my stash. This time I elected to create a slimline card. I've been having fun with this style of card lately. I cut the base and the center strip from White Classic Crest 80 lb Cardstock. A piece of white fun foam adds dimension to the center strip.

I arranged the blooms so they hung over the center strip creating a shadow effect. The second bloom is popped with additional foam tape.

The word Happy is cut from coordinating cardstock using the die from the Halftone Happy Stamp and Die Bundle. I stamped the birthday on a strip with Altenew's Black Obsidian Ink.
