  3. Always love your creations and videos …this is another beautiful card…simple yet elegant! And, of course, now I would like to add that background stamp to my Altenew collection!

  4. Every time I think your card is done and perfect, you add one more element that makes it even better. I love this card. The colors are fabulous together and the completed composition is so cohesive. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Beautiful card Vicky. Love the colours you’ve used and the composition. This is a great release and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  6. Love your card, your colouring is beautiful! Stamping the cardstock with the diamond background stamp made all the difference. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Loved watching your video, Vicky! The partial cut of the flower image is such a great way to make it pop. And, I love the background you used. too!

  10. Such a gorgeous card! Love how you partially fussy cut the floral stamp. It is really a large stamp! (One thing I like about Altenew’s stamps- they aren’t too small.

  12. I like how you blend your colors. Very pretty. And the colors you chose for the papers and flowers–gorgeous

  13. This is a great alternative to die cutting! I’ve seen partial die cutting, but it still requires dies. I like that you can control how much white you like around the edges and if you change your mind about how much of the image you want to cut, you can just set up the T square once more, as you demonstrated. You’ve opened my mind to a bunch of new possibilities.

  14. Love how you cut out a portion of the flowers and the tone on tone background is so pretty.

  15. This is a beautiful card. I love the little touch of gold which is perfect with the design!
