Yana Smakula | Altenew Your Kindness black and teal card #altenew #stamping #doodleblooms

Here’s a look at my card. I wanted to create a bright and contrasting project, so I used black cardstock for my card base. I stamped and colored the branches and flowers from the Doodle Blooms set using greens and aqua colors and cut them out using matching dies.

For my sentiment I used the beautiful “Your kindness makes such a difference” one from the Sentiments and Quotes set.

To give this project a bit of sparkle I used my Wink Of Stella glitter pen and added a touch of glitter to the flowers. I also scattered a few enamel dots around that floral cluster and that finished my project!
