Altenew's Zannia Build-A-Flower Inspiration + Hop

Hello crafty friends! The new Altenew Build-A-Flower release features a beautiful Zinnia floral, which I used today with a couple of other Altenew sets to create a pretty arrangement. The Zinnia is a layering set, and quite easy to put together!

The stamps come with a pamphlet that shows you the step by step instructions for building the Zinnia with the layering images.

The other stamps I used were the Hope set (for the large, green leaves), and I stamped additional leaves with the Wildflower Garden set. The ink colors I used were Frosty Pink, Cotton CandyCoral BerryWatermelon and Crimson for the Zinnia. The largest leaves are stamped with Frayed LeafForest Glades and Evergreen. The florals that I filled in the arrangement with are stamped in ThistleWatermelonFrayed Leaf, and Cotton Candy.

The sentiments are from the Build-A-Flower Zinnia set, and are both embossed with gold and white embossing powders from Brutus Monroe. Around the sentiments, I added sequins from Simon’s Butterfly Kisses mix.

I wanted to add some texture to the  card base, so I ran it through my die cutting machine using the Spring Shower cover plate die as an “embossing folder”. I love how the dry embossed effect brings interest to the card, without distracting from the beautiful floral arrangement.

    Beautiful! Love the combination of the colours you used. I’m a big fan of embossing folders/plates for the exact reason you mentioned here- they add texture and interest without distracting from the main image.

    I love how delicate the whole thing looks with the cover plate embossed on the back. That just gives the whole card a lacy feel. Thanks for sharing with us!
