Welcome to ALTENEW CELEBRATING PARENTS CARD DRIVE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Altenew Card Blog. A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.
We all have been hit -in a way or another- by the world wide events. However, it is our eldest who have and are suffering the most. So, what better way to bring a bit of hope, and happiness to their lives than to receive a small token of our gratitude, love, appreciation, and constant regard for their well being. It is with this idea in mind, that Altenew has started this PARENT CARD DRIVE and blog hop+giveaway. You can read more about the cause here.
Even, when I am not a full time card maker, I couldn't let the opportunity pass to be a part of today's hop, so let me show you what I have created:
There are so many Altenew products to choose from when it comes to creating cards. So, I decided on creating this set to celebrate moms and dads with pops of color.
For my MOM card I decided on a fuchsia/pink color palette. Using the PEONY DREAM 3D DIE SET, I create the two flowers from pink shades of cardstock. The florals are paired with gray leaves -created using the JUST LEAVES DIE SET.
These were set at the top of a white cardstock panel so that leaves cascade to the bottom of the card. Here, I used the FINE ALPHABET DIE SET to cut the word "MOM" from white cardstock, twice ( a bit of DOUBLE SIDED ADHESIVE SHEETS makes all of these come together easily).
To accent the color of the flowers, I glued the panel to a top fold fuchsia A2 card base, and added a few color sequin around the card. Just love the color pop on the card.
Of course, I had to create a complimentary DAD card for this set. For this, I started by creating the sentiment of the card using CAPS BOLD ALPHA DIE SET and COOL SUMMER NIGHT SLIM WASHI TAPE SET. I cut the letters twice ( heavy white cardstock as the base of the letters) and stacked them to form my sentiment.
What makes the cards a set, is the use of the JUST LEAVES DIE SET as a repetitive element in both of them. I cut the leaves from gray cardstock, and attached them to a white cardstock panel, so that they frame the sentiment in the center of the panel.
In order to accent the sentiment, I attached the card panel with a bit of foam adhesive to an A2 teal card base, then added silver and color sequin throughout the card. Simple, clean, and bold!
I love how these turned out, and cannot wait until they make their way to the Drive. Remember you can also help to give back to Altenew's cause by joining the card drive. Click here for more information, or by giving back through your purchases.
