  1. Love the vintage look you created with these dies and supplies. I love different styles of cards and love seeing products used for creating them in many ways. I do love Altenew products and this daisy die is becoming a favorite as I see it used. I also loved the die cut tags in this release.

  2. Love the colors against the dark card stock, I always put everything against white so I might have to try this!

  3. A very pretty vintage card! I didn’t think much of this daisy die until I saw your video. Although simple, it really is a perfect focal point to a layered card. It can be realistic or whimsical depending on how it’s used, great!

  4. I love how you gave this a unique, vintage look! I also really like that you choose your favorites from each release and highlight just those.

  5. Thank you for being considerate of your audience. Altenew blog hops are especially loooooong and it’s nice that an artist will consider the audience when posting. Also, it’s great to see cards that can be made quickly.

  6. Love your card Vicky and your tutorial is very helpful. Your choices from the new release are very versatile.

  7. You did an absolutely awesome card, so different than the norm. Thank You for helping to inspire us. Happy Holidays!

  8. It amazes me how Altenew keeps producing so many great crafting items! I really like the dies and cardstock you used today. Your card is so pretty and, as you said, can be used for so many occasions!

  9. A gorgeous card! I love these wonderful detailed die cut flowers!! Thanks so omuch for the great inspiration! Wishing you and your family a lovely Christmas and here’s hoping 2022 is a good one for everyone. Stay safe! 🙂

  10. This is a stunning card! Your color choices are great. With the large frame you found a way for the flower to stand out and still be anchored to the design.
