Five winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog on January 6th.


PATTY!




This year, I think my Christmas cards dominate my favourites! I just ADORE this black and gold card that was made using a Christmas Tree stamp that meet up with a star in the middle.

I created a couple other more traditional and simple looking cards using the same stamp sets. I just love the way they all turned out - so different despite being from the same set!


I love encouragement cards. I love sending them, uplifting people and receiving them! So when I saw the Never Give Up set, I knew it was something I had to have in my stash. The uniqueness and thoughtfulness of the sentiments are truly amazing!



I wanted to create three different looks to show how colour can really set the tone of a card! You could have rainbow for fun, classy black and white or an ombre soft look just by switching the colour palette!
