ninja card

Happy 4th birthday Altenew! Join us today on a fun blog hop celebrating Altenew’s birthday with tons of inspiration and lots of giveaways! You can start the blog hop from the beginning here.

For celebrating Altenew’s 4th birthday I made a card! Altenew is an awesome company with great designs and best quality products. I believe they really made an impact in the crafting community with their designs. So here is a card perfect for them!

For my card I used a stamp set I adore, unique and dynamic and perfect for masculine cards too! So this ninja comes from the Ninja Invasion Stamp Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). There are even more ninjas in the set all as fun as this one!

For the background of my card I used some texture paste over the Warp Speed Stencil ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ), And to complete the look I also added some bamboo trees that I stamped from the Never Give Up Stamp Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ).
