Altenew 8th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway (over $2,000 in Total Prizes)


Hi Friends! Welcome to the 8th Anniversary Party Hop for Altenew!! Although by its nature an anniversary happens every year, it's still a special celebration of a small business not only surviving, but thriving.
With that in mind, I made a card to help celebrate coming out the other end of 8 years of crazy business cycles (covid, supply chain disruptions, rising prices, China's intellectual property theft, and I'm sure a million other things I'm unaware of). All while providing the utmost in quality, design, and inspiration!


The Celebrate with Cake Die Set is perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and companies passing the 8 year mark! You can decorate the layers with the frosting, bunting, vines, etc. that come in the set, but I chose to add filigree gold detailing from bits of the Delicate Mandala Die. So excited when I saw the curve of the mandala matched exactly the curve of the cake!


The bottom layer of the cake is resting on a bed of greens, made from the vine die included in this set (the darker layer of leaves is flipped over so the leaves are in different spots).

My favorite detail is the edge of the cake plate! I used a different colored cardstock, and embossed that with the Ornamental Feature 3D Embossing Folder. It's a tiny portion of the card, but I think that fine texture really adds a lot.

The background is from the Dotted Lines Debossing Plate. Such an easy way to add more texture!



Finishing out the background is the Fancy For You Die tucked behind the cake. I like layering things over and under the sentiments to keep the design more compact and interesting.


To echo the card, "Let's Celebrate" a successful and creatively-filled 8 years of business at Altenew! Here's to another 8!
