Altenew Academy - Class Six, Let It Shine

Updated: Feb 13, 2019

Class Six in the Altenew Academy "Let It Shine" is all about adding glitter and sparkle to your card makes.

Sometimes it is difficult to find the right balance when it comes to shiny elements, this class offers different ways to introduce a little shine to give your cards a luxurious feel.

For my class submission I have selected this card created with Engraved Flowers stamp set, following the tips from Lesson 5.

I was really taken with the design concepts introduced in "Let It Shine" and wanted my submission to reflect this. This card is also a great example of how planned layouts can change.

I initially cut my circle from the card panel and planned to have it in the top left area, with my flower image in the foreground. I found the layout too restricted, and the flower masked too much of the foiling detail on the acetate. Swapping the layout around, I found a better flow leading from the flower down to the acetate. I placed the sentiment behind the acetate stamped in black and balanced this using a strip of black down the left side of the card.

I love the subtle details introduced using glitter as a frame around my cut out, and as a strip, as well as the foiled polka dot across the acetate.
