His and Her Card Sets Featuring Altenew Academy Techniques

Hello Hello! I am sharing two gift card sets created using my favorite Altenew products and the techniques I learned in a few Altenew Academy classes !

Let’s get going!

For my feminine card sets I chose techniques I learned in Easy Die Cutting Techniques. All About Layering, and Clean and Simple Boutique Cards.

I chose to create a set of hnd stamped note cards that wold work for any occasion and that had a simple, elegant feel. I started by cutting card bass, panels, and creating envelopes using bright white heavyweight cardstock. I wanted to add a bit of drama, so I laid the card panels out and gave them a splatter of black ink

Next, I went through my stash of Altenew layered flower stamps and created a rainbow of flowers with my Altenew Crisp Dye Inks. I wanted a rainbow color scheme for the card set and mixed with some green leaves, they looked amazing!

I fussy cut my flowers and then assembled my rainbow flower card set, complete with an envelope ready for mailing

I like to keep my packaging simple, so tying my cards with a fun ribbon and placing them in a simple kraft gift bag works for me!

Now on to the “his” card set

For this card set, I chose techniques from Clean and Simple Boutique Cards (loved that class!), Easy Ink Blending Techiques, and For The Guys.

I started the same way-with card bases, panels, and envelopes created with heavyweight white cardstock. I chose a more masculine color pallette with shades of grey, blue, green, and brown. I inked each panel and then stamped a tone on tone pattern on top using second generation stamping for a subtle detail to the background.

I then stamped my image on white cardstock for a darker, focal image and die cut the image. I used foam squares to give the main image some dimension and prominance and adhered it over the top of my inked background.

This one might be my favorite…it reminds me of the look of a deep, rich suede!

For packaging I used some bakers twine and a mini clothepin to gather the cards together and then found some recycled packaging to hold the cards in. I often recycle packaging from purchases or gifts to use again!

Thank you so much for sticking with me to the end. I hope you enjoyed these fun his and her gift sets.

Have A Lovely Day!
