So what is Craft-a-Flower? Like Altenew’s other subscription services (Build-a-Flower, Mini Delight, and Paint-a-Flower), enrolling in the monthly subscription guarantees your stock of the following month’s product at a discounted price! Like Build-a-Flower, Craft-a-Flower is a die set of layering images that you assemble with your favorite layering cardstocks–such as Altenew’s Gradient Cardstocks. I had ideas to layer different cardstock finishes like foil cardstock and patterned paper with the new Craft-a-Flower. If you have never heard of Altenew’s 3D layering dies, I have a video all about using the new Floral 3D Die Sets and how EASY it is to make dimensional floral cards with coordinating cardstocks!

I made this second card by mixing up the layers a bit for a white flower variation. I made my own foiled speckled cardstock with the Altenew – Summer Afternoon Gradient Cardstock for an arrangement inspired by Japanese Washi. I used other non-Altenew products to achieve this look like Ranger Sticky Embossing Ink, a laminating machine, and iCraft DecoFoil Sheets. The credit for this technique goes to the legendary Jennifer McGuire with a mix of two tutorials: foiling techniques and trapped embossing powder in a laminating sheet.

  1. Jaycee, your cards are just so striking. I love the detail you have captured – almost like they were freshly picked and saved in a book 🙂 I love the splatter look – I’m always terrified to do that step but you’ve given me such inspiration! TFS!

  2. Both of your cards are amazing. Thanks for the video and including the tips you used for exact placement of the flower parts. Using the die as a way to center the parts is brilliant. I can’t decide which card I like the best, so am going with both of them.

  3. I love watching your video I always learn so much! Your way to layer up the flowers within the dies is ingenuous! And using the leaf as a flower bud! Such a great idea, and really adds something extra to your arrangement. I love the background and use of colours. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and expertise with is.

  5. What a fabulous shortcut to neatly make a 3D die cut card. I make a mess with glue so this method really appeals to me. Your card turned out beautifully !

  6. What gorgeous cards!!! Definitely these are 2 of my favorites for so many reasons from the splattering to the placement of flowers and leaves on each card. I just got done watching your video and, as a result, picked up some new tips. You are a gifted card maker!!
