Let's get started!


Altenew


Today's card was a fun one to make.  I grabbed a piece of coral cardstock and blended in some Crimson ink around the edge, keeping the center like a highlight.  I stamped the an image from the Engraved Flowers Stamp Set in white ink.  Next, I cut down the panel and added it to a white card base. 


Altenew


I die cut the Congrats Frame Die in black cardstock and cut off the congrats to line the bottom red panel.  I added that to the panel using spray adhesive.  Last, I die cut the Miss You Die in black cardstock and black fun foam.  I adhered the 2 together and added them to the top of the red panel.
