Altenew | August 2023 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY!

August 18, 2023

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Altenew August 2023 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY worth $300 worth of prizes! If you aren’t sure where to start, you can always begin the hop HERE at Altenew.

If you are hopping along, you should have arrived from the blog of Mindy Eggen. Next up will be Seeka.

My card today features the Craft-A-Flower Bellflower Layering Die Set combined with the previously released Dotted Waves Stencil.

You can check out the entire August 2023 Marvelous Monthly Series collection HERE.

To create my flowers, I used a blend of purple Altenew card stock colors from their Gradient Cardstock Set – New Purple. I also used some purple Altenew Inks to create my card background using the gorgeous Dotted Waves Stencil. My card measures at 3.5″ x 8.5″ to fit perfectly into a standard business sized envelope.
