Altenew Build-A-Flower: Stargazer

December sure came around super quickly with the Thanksgiving holidays at the end of the month! A new first of the month means a new Altenew Build-a-Flower and this month we are featuring the Stargazer. Working with the Stargazer got me wishing I was on the beaches of Hawaii and bathing in the warm sun!

I started by stamping the layered Stargazer flower in Altenew inks Blush, Rouge, Velvet, and Crimson. The leaves are stamped in Firely, Green Field, and Shadow Creek. Once finished stamping, I used the coordinating dies to die cut each of the images out.

For the background, I ink blended Festive Berries, Dried Marigold and Antique Linen distress oxide inks over a Beach Towel Stripes Stencil from the top and bottom edges inward.

I made my floral arrangement in the center of the card. Adding some pieces directly onto the background and some with foam tape to give it a varied dimension.

The sentiment is from this stamp set as well and heat embossed in white onto kraft card stock. I trimmed it down to a thin strip and added it across the center of the card.
