4. Five projects will be featured on the Altenew blog on October 17!
My project for the Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop also follows the rule of One-Layer Simplicity, which is to keep your project to one layer of cardstock, folded in half...no other layers allowed. I also used Altenew stamps because, you know, they are beautiful and it's the Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop. For our usual OLS challenge players, feel free to stick to one layer, or layer it up to your heart's content! If you have some Altenew stamps, great, but if not, play along anyway!
The main goal, as always, of our challenge is to HAVE FUN.
To make my card, I cut the curve freehand with a craft knife and edged it with a silver Prisamcolor metallic marker. After masking the inside of the card, I stamped the lovely butterfly image from Altenew's Botanical Garden in Impress Fresh Ink grass and surrounded it with roses in Memento Luxe rose bud.
The sentiment is from Altenew's versatile Sentiments and Quotes stamp set and was placed on the acrylic block to fit the curve of the paper edge.
A few silver beads unify the top and bottom of the card.
I hope you'll have fun playing along with the Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop. I did!!!
