Celebrate Card - Easy Die Cutting Techniques - AECP

Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you my ninth completed AECP Level 1 – Easy Die Cutting Techniques Card. 

The course demonstrated how to get more use out of your dies. For today's card I used a few die-cut techniques to create my card.

First I embossed white cardstock with the Altenew Scallops Cover Die. I just love the beautiful textured background I achieved with the cover die.

Just remember to use an embossing mat and the special sandwich for your die-cut machine in order to get the perfect embossing with the cover die.

Following on from this I stamped the Altenew Delicate Garden Outline Stamp onto blending cardstock and coloured it with the Altenew Artist Markers Mystic Garden Set JThe alcohol markers just blends perfectly and the end result is a beautiful bright and striking coloured image.

I then die-cut the coloured flower image with the Altenew Delicate Garden Die Set. I just needed to put it through once to achieve a perfect cut.

To finish I stamped the Altenew Label Love Sentiment Stamp and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots.

I will share more of my projects from the AECP as I work my way through the courses so stay tuned for more cardmaking posts!
