Hello crafty friends!
This month’s build-a-flower set features a beautiful carnation. The meaning of carnation includes fascination, distinction, and love, and its use in art and decor dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. With their ruffled appearance and classic beauty, these flowers possess a charm and allure that continues to captivate people around the globe. Alongside the multi-step carnation, we have included two-step leaves, berries, and a cluster of tiny flowers that can be used as filler images for your flower arrangements! The set also includes three kindness sentiments that are great for any occasion.
Altenew Build-A-Flower: Carnation
Here is what I came up with:
When I saw the beautiful Carnation set, I wanted to make very feminine card. :D I stamped layered carnations & leaves using some dye inks, and then die cut them with the matching dies:
Red carnation: (light to dark) Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Ruby Red
Pink carnation: Frosty Pink, Peach Perfect, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry
Leaves: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades
Before mounting the cluster of carnations, I decorated the Spicy Yogurt card base with lace.
