Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Cosmos Layering Die Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Updated: Feb 17


Hello Crafty friends, Its time for another beautiful Craft -A -Flower Release by Altenew called "Cosmos". This post is a part of a blog hop to celebrate the CAF Cosmos release, it is packed with many artist, which means tons of inspirations as you hop along. If you are hoping along then you must be coming from the very talented Therese Calvird post. I have the blog order at the bottom of the page for your reference. Also there is an amazing GIVEAWAY by Altenew , details about it at the bottom of this post as well


I had never seen a cosmos flower in real life, until I came to the United States. I was so delighted to see a flower that looked like the one I always created as a little girl. A yellow center with 5 to 6 petals coming from the center. Putting together a cosmo flower from the new release brought back those memories. For my card today I created a bouquet of flowers. These flowers are so easy to put together and the end results are stunning, don't you agree?

Steps to create this card:

  • Start by die cutting the different layers of the flowers usng shades of pink card stock

  • Add some dimensions and texture to the flowers layers with Altenew Artist Markers

  • Repeat the same with the leaves and the center of the flower with green and yellow card stocks

  • To add extra dimension to the flowers i used a ball tool in the center of each layer to give some life to the petal layers

  • Adhere the petal layers to form the flower and add the center of the flowers

  • On a navy blue card stock stencil the geometric design using a white ink

  • Stamp and emboss the sentiment on the right top corner of the card stock

  • Now create a bouquet coming form the right corner by adhering the leaves and flowers to the blue panel

  • Add an additional sentiment to the bouquet

  • Add some white dots and gem stones around the flowers.

I hope I have inspired you to create a bouquet using the CAF Cosmos flower Die. Next stop on the hop is Rosie Neustaedter. Have a wonderful Sunday and happy hopping.
