Here are the projects that I created...
I have always been a fan of Altenew's flowers! They have so much detail and I adore the multi step process, allowing me to add color depth. So when I saw the new Winter Rose set, I knew I had to have it!
I created two very similar cards, just changing up the card base color and sentiment.
Even though there are several stamping steps to complete each flower, I found them very easy to line up thanks to the printed guide on the back of the stamp set packaging. There is also something so exciting about watching each flower come to life as each layer is stamped...I love it!
