New Birthday Card With Altenew Majestic Bloom - not for a class


I know so many people, many are family, that have their birthdays during the Summer months. So I sometimes need to make new cards if I am running out. I have dozens of cards on display at the studio but I can not use them. I thought it would be good to play with my Altenew Majestic Bloom stamp set, since I love the look of it, and I need practise using the stamps.


This card is for my Mom's best friend. Mom is no longer here, so I try to remember her friend's birthday and give her a card.

I was originally thinking of using silver embossing powder for this card, but could not find it. So, I went with Altenew's Platinum embossing powder and I loved it! Must remember to use that colour more often.


This next photo close up is to show you the stencilling I did in the background using NUVO Mousse in Gunmetal Gray. I wanted to use the Platinum, but found that was one colour I did not have.


The next two photos show a side view so that you can see the layering of the card better.


You can see under the pink blossom, that I used two layers of pop up tape at the bottom of the flower. The top part that is overlapping the blue blossom, has a single layer. And the banner is popped up as well.


I think I am getting better at using this stamp set. I am thinking of try a couple of watercolour versions with this set as well.

Hope you enjoyed seeing the card, and are inspired to create something.

Happy stamping!
