Multi-layer stamping with Altenew stamps...

A while back I purchased a set of multi-layer stamps from Altenew. The name of the set is Vintage Roses, and last month I shared this sympathy card that I made with them.

I also stamped up a few lacey rectangles to have on hand to use whenever I needed a quick card. It seems I need one of those "quick cards" every month, so here's one that I put together recently:

I dry-embossed my background panel--not sure of the brand of EF--and then highlighted the raised part of the design by lightly dragging an ink pad in the same color across it.

My butterfly was cut from some metallic gold cardstock with an Ellentina die, and my Happy Birthday was cut from the same CS with an Elizabeth Crafts die.

I added a few flat-backed gems as my butterfly's body and also nestled some in the leaves of my rose.

I still have a few of these scalloped panels that I've stamped with this rose and leaves. It was easy to set up a mini-production line to get them stamped and have them ready for future cards, so you may be seeing similar cards in the future!

For the inside of my card, I simply cut another lacey rectangle, stamped it with a birthday sentiment and adhered it to a turquois mat, which wasn't embossed this time.

I think that next time I make a birthday card with one of these panels, I might use the inlay method for the birthday sentiment on the front. I love the look of inlaid die-cuts!

We are already beginning to get some cooler fall-like weather here in the Northland. It was down into the 50s (Fahrenheit) last night. No air conditioning needed when it cools off like that!!

Today will be a catch-up sort of day. My house and yard are both in need of some attention!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Very pretty rose. I love it on the scalloped rectangle. Beautiful metallic butterfly. I think butterflies always dress up a card.

Hi Cheryl, I am totally in love with these beautiful Altenew stamps and love what you did with the rose. Beautiful card. I also stamped up a bunch in different colors to use when I need a quick card.

I love, love, love that rose! It looks like vintage wallpaper to me and I mean that in a good way!
