Altenew Craft-A-Flower: California Giants Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

This lovely new Craft-a-Flower is the perfect size to take centre stage on a mini slimline card. I kept this card simple so the CAF: California Giants layering die set was not overshadow, showing off the stunning details in the petals. With a simple, almost monochromatic colour scheme you create one stunning elegant card. 

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Keren Baker. You can always start at the beginning of the hop over at the Altenew Card Blog here.

Make sure you check out the end of the post for more details on the hop, along with your next stop!

written tutorial

CAF: California Giants

Start off by die-cutting all the elements of the CAF: California Giants layering die set out of white card. Take the detailed layer of the flower and colour this with Daydream ink using the direct to paper method with your ink pad. Repeat this step with the stem as well.

Next, colour the inners of the flower with the new Buttercream and Warm Sunshine pigment ink pads with the same direct to paper method. One dry, adhere the flower die-cuts following the layering guide on the package. 

For the card, create a mini slimline card base and cut one of the Circular elements dies out the front. Add a piece of vellum to this die-cut window, and re-adhere the die-cut back over the top. For added interest, ink blend Cove Blue ink down the card base, fading this out towards the bottom. 

Add the flower to the front of the card and add a layered ‘hello’ using the sentiment die within the CAF: California Giants layering die set. Lastly, embellish with a few clear sequins.
