I’ve said this many times before, if it wasn’t for your lovely comments, questions, and suggestions over on my my YouTube Channel, Instagram, or here on my blog, I would struggle to come up with content. At the same time, I’m grateful that you all are so patient when it comes to the delivery my videos. I was really excited for this release in particular because I saw it as the perfect time to film a tutorial on my most requested video topic: the Golden Ratio.

Here’s the final card from the video. Like I said in the video, I’ve got a freebie for you all. This isn’t an Altenew product nor is it affiliated with the Altenew brand. I made it myself for you all to use if you wish. If you do use the A2 Golden Ratio Template, please make sure you share your projects with me over on Instagram (@jaycee.gaspar). I would love to see what you made.

The floral images from Altenew – Wavy Roses (ALT) reminded me of the Japanese clouds found in Edo Period woodblock prints. I went along with the color palette and Japanese theme and paired this image with Altenew – Ori Kami (ALT).

One of the things I’ve always admired about the Altenew brand is the committment to diversity and culture–their products range from Eid to Label Love in many languages. These Altenew – Polish Papercuts 3D Dies (ALT) are reminiscent of Wycinaki and are the stand-alone version to the Altenew – Wonderful Wycinaki (ALT). After learning about this exciting symmetrical Polish paper craft, I came up with this layered piece.

I used a similar technique from my Crystal Flowers (YouTube) video to make this floral arrangement. I used a sponge blending tool to lightly diffuse a magenta ink on the tips of the petals before stamping the rest of the Altenew – Playful Plumeria (ALT) layering image in a yellow family of inks.

  1. The golden ratio is something I look for in architecture — and buildings that respect it are usually extremely pleasing to me. I never thought of using it in my cards though. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.
    All your cards are (again) very beautiful. Thank you for the inspiration and best wishes to you!

    1. Would also like to add that I found your video fascinating! I was an art student many moons ago and have often shared the magic of Fibonacci sequence with my children and friends over the years! So cool that you developed a way to incorporate it with stamping!!! Thank you!

  3. Thank you for sharing your Golden ratio template. Just wish there was a way not to print with out the big black graphics- so much wasted toner. Cool graphic though. Love your “card” card and the video sharing how you used the template.

  5. JC when I see your name on a blog hop I look forward with great anticipation to seeing your amazing cards. I am so grateful for your video, but then I saw the algebra equation & thought, “oh no”, & then you said you’d have a pdf in the links & I breathed a sigh of relief. lol Fabulous cards! I can’t even pick a favourite as they each have something special about them. Thanks!
