Closer Look | Altenew Build-A-Flower: Tree Peony
Are you ready for a gorgeous tree peony in full bloom? This set features an outline image and three coordinating coloring layers each for the petals and flower center. The coloring layers have been drawn in detail for stunning realism! We have also included a leaf image (outline + three coloring layers) and a dainty little branch with small buds and leaves. The images are handy for flower arrangements or bouquets on your handmade cards, scrapbook layouts, journal pages, and DIY decor projects. Finally, finish off your project with any of the six sweet sentiments included in the set.
My First Card | Build-A-Flower: Tree Peony
For my first card, I stamped the Tree Peony using Red Sunset Crisp Dye inks and leaves using the Warm Gray family of inks. The yellows for the center of the flower are from the Summer Afternoon ink set. I also stamped out the delicate foliage from the stamp set in black and die cut all the elements. Next, I created a white textured panel using the Deck Planks 3D embossing folder.
For the sentiment, I used one from the Best Sentiments stamp set. This little set is currently on sale for just $0.99 and I highly recommend it! I assembled my card using some foam tape for additional dimension and finished off with some clear drop embellishments. Check out the close-up pictures!
My Second Card | Build-A-Flower: Tree Peony
For my second card, I used Enchanted Garden Crisp Dye inks for the flower and the Green Fields family of inks for the leaves. . Something very different form what I traditionally use for floral cards.
I used another sentiment from the Best Sentiments set and arranged everything on a white embossed panel. This time, I used the Buffalo Plaid 3D embossing folder for the background. Once again, I added clear drops to finish off. Here are some close-up pictures so you can check out the details.
My Third Card | Build-A-Flower: Tree Peony
I repeated almost all the same steps for the third card, but switched out the green for yellows to stamp the leaves.
I love this combination of violets with yellow. The background on this is card is the Zentangle Patterns 3D Embossing powder. Again, I have a few close-ups for you.
