Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Hi Friends! I'm happy to be joining Altenew in the Celebrating Parents Blog Hop, where our goal is to send a truckload of cards to elderly folks living in nursing homes or shelters, and just let them know someone is thinking of them.

You may have come from the blog of Joylita Dsouza, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with the Altenew Card Blog.

If you've already participated and sent some cards, that's fantastic!! If you're interested in joining, you can check out all the details at the main Celebrating Parents Card Drive post on how to send cards.

I thought I'd go big for this card, and used a 5" x 7" card base. While I of course enjoy the familiarity of an A2-sized card base, it's great to switch things up once in awhile.

The blooms on this card are the gorgeous Airbrushed Flowers, a layered stamp set that's so easy to line up due to the loose nature of the airbrushing. I do love all the white space that's left in the flowers as well. That makes the flowers sure to pop on a non-white background.

Speaking of non-white background, I was really happy with how this background turned out! Any guesses how it's made?

Perhaps the long birch tree from Birch Impressionism?! Yep and yep!


Finally, the Versatile Vases 2 come in super handy to use as a place to put these beautiful blooms. Being in different sizes, there's always a perfect size for you to use.

  4. Beautiful card, all of the elements are pulled together in harmony. Thanks for the reminder about getting out of my A2-size rut; Mother's Day is a perfect time for a bigger than usual card.
