VIDEO | Layered Lily with Tag Aperture

Hello there, today I have a card and video to share with you that I created for Altenew as part of my Terrific Tags with Michelle series. It uses the gorgeous CAF Peruvian Lily set, which is one of my favourites and I thought I would create an aperture for it, so that it can look like it is bursting out of the card!

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by die cutting the Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily Layering Die Set from cardstock. I used Altenew Jet Black for the bottom layer and the leaves, and Altenew Gradient Cardstock Sets for the other flower layers. I used Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious and Razzleberry from the Altenew Cherry Blossom Gradient Cardstock Set, Warm Sunshine from the Altenew Summer Afternoon Gradient Cardstock Set and I cut the stamens from Brushed Gold from the Altenew Gilded Glitter Cardstock Set.

The pieces were assembled and adhered using liquid glue. I took a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of white cardstock and cut an Altenew Terrific Tag Die from it. This will create my aperture. I took a US A2 sized white card base and adhered a panel of Altenew Essential Black & White Paper on top. I then adhered the aperture panel on top, using Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape

The flower was adhered in place when I added the panel (check the video to see how I did it!) and then I adhered the leaves with more liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Soft Blossoms Stamp Set on to black cardstock using Altenew Embossing Ink

I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and adhered to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Altenew Antique Gold Sequins


Here is the video showing how I made the card:

  1. This is beyond beautiful Michelle! I just love the tag shaped aperture and the lily with the black and white paper behind it is just so striking! I love the gold accents too, so so pretty and I must get my hands on some of those antique gold sequins! xx
