Hi there! Today, Altenew is hopping along to celebrate their new Craft-A-Flower: Magnolia release, and I’m happy to be one of the stops! You should have arrived here from LauraJane, and your next stop is Michelle Short. You can also start back at the Altenew Card Blog to see the full hop list. I have a sparkly, super textured monochromatic project for you today, so let’s get started with the details!
White magnolias are stunning, so I used a pure white magnolia image as the basis for my all-white project. I began by cutting the base layer for my Craft-A-Flower: Magnolia flower and foliage from some Dazzling Diamond glitter paper from Altenew, then cut the subsequent layers from pure white cardstock and adhered them all together using liquid adhesive. I love the subtle texture of the white-on-white. I did add a teeny pop of color with the yellow flower center.
Next, I cut the Garden Trellis cover die from white cardstock and mounted it on an A2 panel of white cardstock. This simple background is perfect, subtly textured enough to make it interesting, but also plain enough to allow the detailed magnolia die cut to be the star of the show!
For the greeting, I used the Script Words 2 dies to die cut a white “happy,” then stamped a greeting from Sentiment Strips 3 using some medium gray ink to keep things subtle. I adhered all of the pieces with lots of foam tape to help the white components pop up from the white background. Dimension and texture are key when creating these monochromatic projects!
Well, that’s all for my project today. Now for some fun giveaway information:
