Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway 2022

Hello, crafty friends!
I'm so happy to be joining Altenew for an inspirational hop today, as a part of the annual Celebrating Parents Card Drive! Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are approaching and this can be a difficult time for seniors who are in nursing homes or shelters. We want these important people to feel loved, celebrated, and honored — and that’s where the annual Card Drive comes in!

Maybe you have a little bit of extra time in the next few weeks to create a few Mother’s or Father’s Day cards to send in for the drive. It doesn’t take much! 

If you arrived here from the remarkable, Jaycee Gaspar's Blog, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog. We've got tons of inspiration and giveaways for you on the hop today, so keep reading till the end of this post for more information.

I used the Remember This Stamp Set along with a couple of my older favourites from Altenew to create this bright and cheery Mother's Day card.

To create my card, I stamped the layered flowers from the Remember This Stamp Set onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock using Obsidian, Rubellite, Pinkalicious, and Pink Diamond inks with the help of my MISTI Stamping Tool. I stamped the images twice so that I had enough number of pieces for my design. Next, I stamped the leaf layers using Evergreen,  Forest Glades, and Jet Black inks from the Green Fields Crisp Dye Ink Oval Set. Once that was done, I fussy-cut all of the images using a pair of scissors.

Next, I die-cut Beeswax Cardstock using the Cube Cover Die to add some interest to my background panel. I also added a die-cut oval and some greenery from the Create-A-Wreath Die Set, cut from Dazzling Diamond Cardstock, and adhered it down on my panel using foam adhesive to ‘ground’ the flowers. Next, I stamped my sentiment from the Extra Special Stamp Set onto the oval die-cut piece using Obsidian Ink

I assembled the different elements on my panel and adhered down the pieces using foam squares. Then, to finish, I adhered the panels together with Craft Glue, before adhering it to a top-folding A2-sized white card base using tape runner. Finally, to complete, I added some black paint splatters for interest.

 Altenew has chosen a few products that are great for your Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards (and other year-round projects)!
