Quick cards with beautiful Ephemera

Quick cards with beautiful Ephemera! (Altenew Wildflower Paper Crafting Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway)

I’ve never really reached for ephemera to add to my cards, I admit I admire from a far, but never really tried it. However, the Altenew Wild Flower Paper Collection really spurred me on to use it and make a couple of quick cards with beautiful ephemera.

At the end of the day, it’s the same as you using a stamped and die-cut image, but less  work for you to begin with. So why have I not used them sooner! These cards were very quick and easy to make, and I was immediately drawn to the beautiful colour tone of the paper pack and gorgeous designs.

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Lilith Eeckels. 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!

The WildFlower Paper collection is available to buy from Thursday, April 29th at 9:00 am EDT.

tropical vibes with embossing glitter: creating the background

quick cards with beautiful ephemera: card 1 - bold stripes

For this first card, I wanted to use one of the more bolder pattern designs in the Wildflower 6×6 paper pack. Start off by trimming a piece of the black & white striped paper  down at an angle.

Before foam mounting the paper onto a white card base, add some Jet Black Ink Spray splatters to the card to add a little more interest to the white space. 

To finish the card off, add the large floral from the Pink Posy ephemera pack off set to one side. Lastly, add a heat embossed sentiment from the Sentiment Strips stamp set

quick cards with beautiful ephemera: card 2 - bold contrast

For this card, I was drawn to the beautiful intricate black ephemera piece from the Bity Bits ephemera pack. I wanted to create a fairly CAS card with a lot of contrast.

Once again use the Jet Black Ink Spray to add ink splatter to a white card base. Next, adhere the black ephemera piece onto the card and foam mount an additional small ephemera from the same Bity Bits ephemera pack in the middle of the card. 

Again, add another heat embossed sentiment from the Sentiment Strips stamp set and finish the card off by embellished with a few Cherry Blossom Enamel Dots
