you are loved * card set * Altenew

I made another card set using a very pretty die by Altenew.


I thought that this quite large word die does not need much more to make a card work. So I left the rest pretty simple to make that sentiment pop. I used Distress Oxide inks to get these vibrant colors.  


To spice up my first card I used a stitched background die by MFT. I think it adds just the right amount of "a little something". To finish the card up, I added this little dots that I die cut from my leftover paper and added a little hello sentiment as well.

This first card was inspired by the current Altenew Inspiration Challenge. I changed the color combo a bit by repacing the orange with yellow (orange would not blend as well with blue/green like yellow does). 

For the second card I used a stencil by Tim Holtz. I did the background with Distress Inks, because Distress Oxides were to bold for what I had in mind. Thankfully the colors mach perfectly. 


For the last card, I used some pattern paper and a speech bubble die by Lawn Fawn. I think a neutral color like the light grey goes very well with the bold color mix I used on this card. The sequins helped to bring everything together.
