I know it has been a hot minute since my last post (almost a year!), but sadly, I’m not making many cards these days. Well, life update: I began to work again after my maternity leave/unemployment, and I find it hard to find some time/motivation to make cards. But I still love seeing what other crafters share and enjoy watching YouTube tutorials.

Today I’m sharing a card I made for a friend who just defended her Ph.D. thesis. I wanted to make a card to congratulate her and tell her that I am going to miss her so much. She loves flowers, so I had to use these beautiful peonies from the ‘Peony Bouquet’ stamp set from Altenew. I love how easily you can get astonishing results with Altenew’s layering stamps! I don’t even have many ink pads, and I think these flowers turned out great.


I arranged the flowers and glued them to a white cardstock panel I had previously embossed using a stencil. I saw this technique in this Yanna Smakula’s tutorial a long time ago, and I decided to give it a try. Honestly, I am amazed by the result, although is barely visible in the pictures.


I love how the gold embossed images match the gold sentiment.

Finally, I mounted everything on a light pink panel and glued it to a card base. I added the word hooray, die cut from gold cardstock, and the sentiment, heat embossed on a light pink stripe of cardstock.

Although floral cards are not my jam, I am happy with how this design turned out. I hope you like it!

I’m entering this card into Altenew Inspiration Challenge – January 2023:
