Altenew Educators Secret Card Recipe Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway!



Welcome here from Rachael Shedeed's blog, the hop begins at the Altenew Card Blog.

Do you ever need to whip up a card in a hurry? Following a recipe makes it easy to pull something lovely together in a pinch!

Here's my Secret Card Recipe:

1. Choose a 6x6 paper
2. Die cut a neutral card stock with a cover die
3. Layer die cut over patterned paper
4. Die cut sentiment and pop it up with foam adhesive

I created a masculine version and and feminine version by varying my paper choices. 

The masculine version features paper from the Poured Acrylic 6x6 paper pad while the feminine version features paper from the Blushing Blooms 6x6 paper pack.

The white and black card stock is die cut with the Leaf Frame Cover Die and the sentiment is cut with the Essential Sentiment Strips Die. 

These two cards came together in under 30 minutes once I chose all the supplies. I inlaid patterned paper within the centre of the frame as well to add a little more interest to the card.

Wow, the pattern paper you used is absolutely beautiful. I never think of using the pattern paper, somehow I can never find what I like. This is great! Thank you for sharing.

Good idea to have a quick recipe for when we need a quick card. I'll try it.

Roxy T said...

I have this cover plate. This may be my new go to for any rush card. These are beautiful.

Stacy B said...

What a great tip. Neither of these cards look like you "whipped" them up quickly. Its a great recipe and I guess I need to buy some more cover plate dies because goodness knows I have enough 6 x 6 pattern paper to last a lifetime.

Carole McK said...

What a great idea to have a card "recipe". I did that a little bit with the most recent card I designed. I will keep it in mind in the future. Thank you!

Jeanne Rice said...

Beautiful. Love your recipe and cards.
