Create elegance with a CAS card and Dark colours - Altenew Stamps & inks

Altenew Altenew celebrate us Altenew Cerulean Altenew Cosmos Altenew stamps Altenew Tartan stamp CAS Card Heat embossing Verity Biddlecombe

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. Today I've got a lovely CAS card with some dark colours to create a focal point that just pops. Add a touch of gold in the embossing and embellishments and you've got a recipe for an elegant CAS card. This card uses just two Altenew stamp sets, and with a simple design you can create a card that wows!

Written and photos Create elegance with a CAS card and Dark colours: 

 As I planned to add the focal image onto a navy cardstock, I choose some colours that would work well with the blue and pop off the background. Reds from the Cosmos Berry Mini cube set was perfect for this. First, stamp the outline in Permanent Black Crisp ink.
  Next, stamp the first layer (the fullest layer) in Coral berry ink from the Cosmos Ink set and the stamp the remaining layer of the flower in Ruby red, from the same ink set. For the foliage, I went with a teal as this pairs well with the Navy card and the red flower. The colour used is Galatic Stream from the Cerulean Skies Mini Cube ink set.  After the stamping is complete, use the coordinating die to cut the image out. 
 
  To help anchor the flower onto the card, use the two strips from the Altenew Tartan stamp set to heat emboss in gold embossing powder onto the card. Stamp another strip above or below the to other strips to create a cohesive design.  Foam mount the flower onto this, offset to onside and the add the whole panel to a white card base ensuring you have a white border.
 
 The gold adds another touch of elegance and to drawn on this more, embellish the card with Gold Matt sequins, scattered around the flower. Lastly, finish the card by heat embossing the 'For you' sentiment from the stamp set in white embossing powder onto black card.
