AECP – Clean and Simple Boutique Cards

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with a card featuring the Beautiful Lady stamp set by Altenew. I’ve had this stamp for awhile and this is the second time that I’ve colored it. The first time, I colored it with distress inks so I decided to try it again with my Copic markers.

Rowhouse Greetings | Beautiful Lady by Altenew

I wasn’t quite sure where I was going with the design so I just let it evolve along the way. I started by stamping with Amalgam Ink and coloring the image with Copic markers. Originally, I planned a one layer card, but decided that I wanted more dimension so I fussy cut the image. Yes – I did it by hand. It was late at night and I didn’t feel like pulling out my Scan and Cut!

I originally planned a portrait orientation for my card, but after the image was cut, I realized that I could make better use of white space if I used a landscape orientation. I stamped the sentiment (from the Beautiful Day stamp set by Altenew) and adhered the image with foam squares, trimming the stem where it extended beyond my card. I finished it off by adding a few sequins and dewdrops.

Today’s card was inspired by the Clean & Simple Boutique Cards class by Altenew Academy. You can find out more about this class and many more at the Altenew Academy.

Hope you got some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!
