Altenew April Release Blog Hop

Welcome to a fun blog hop as we celebrate the April stamp and die release by Altenew.

Start the blog hop from the beginning here: Altenew Card Blog

For today I created a lovely tulip garden in a window card. I have been traveling last week in Amsterdam so I am still into a tulip mood

This is a birthday card for a very good friend of mine. She had her birthday while both our families were traveling together in Amsterdam. She gets a birthday card every year from me so I had to make one appropriate when we came back. You can see the inside message if you watch the video πŸ™‚

For my card I used the Folksy Florals Stamp Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). It’s a cute flower stamp set that you can use by mixing and matching stamps to create your very own flowers. I chose to go only with the tulips for my card but there are so many other designs you can use.

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
