Altenew Anything Goes Video Hop + Giveaway

Let’s start with the Aztec Card, which was quite quick to make.

  1. Start with a top folding note card cut to 4.25 inches and 5.5 inches.
  2. Use the Altenew Aztec stencil and place in the center of the card.
  3. Beginning at the top, use Altenew Mountain Mist, and an Altenew blending brush, cover the stencil 1/3 of the way down.
  4. Next blend Altenew Puffy Heart ink throughout the center.
  5. Finish the ink blending with Altenew Silver Stone.
  6. Take a kraft cardstock panel of 4 inches to 5.25 inches and cut out a rectangle to create a frame.
  7. Use the Altenew Masonry Wall Embossing Folder and emboss the kraft frame.
  8. Add double-sided foam dimensional tape around the frame.
  9. Adhere the frame on top of the ink blended card base.
  10. Stamp the “You’re the Best” stamp from the Altenew Boho Arrow Stamp set with Altenew Mountain Mist ink.
  11. Then, using the stencil, ink blend the three dots in the Altenew Puffy Heart ink on either side of the sentiment.
  12. Add double-sided foam dimensional tape only in the middle of the sentiment, then adhere to the bottom of the card.

I can think of so many more cards and designs to make with this stencil. It is so cute! Now, let’s make the holiday card.

  1. Cut a top-folding notecard to 4.25 inches and 5.5 inches.
  2. Add a panel of patterned paper to 4.25 inches and 5.5 inches to cover the cardbase.
  3. Cut a smaller panel of kraft cardstock to 3.75 inches by 5 inches.
  4. Adhere this panel to the middle of the card.
  5. Cut a crimson panel to 3.5 inches by 4.75 inches.
  6. Take the ornament from the Festive Silhouettes Stamp set and Versamark Clear Ink. Begin stamping the ornament in the middle of the panel. Alternate the spacing of the ornament to create a patterned background. Set to the side to dry.
  7. Taking a scrap piece of kraft cardstock and stamp the stag silhouette stamp from the Festive Silhouettes using Altenew Espresso Ink.
  8. Die cut or fussy cut the stag silhouette.
  9. Add dimensional tape to the back of the stag silhouette. Then, take a medium sized strand of gold thread and wrap that around your fingers to create loops. Then adhere to the back of the stag silhouette. Arrange as needed to create a nice flow of the thread.
  10. Add the stag to the middle of the crimson panel. Also, add a piece of green ribbon to the bottom of the crimson panel.
  11. On a small square white cardstock, stamp the Noel sentiment from the Festive Silhouettes Stamp set in Altenew Rose Gold Pigment ink.
  12. Add foam dimensional tape to the back of the crimson panel, then adhere this panel to the cardbase.

If you don’t have the coordinating die for the stag, it is not too difficult to fussy cut, as I did. This is another cute little set for which I already have many ideas to make many Christmas cards.
