AECP: All About Layering 5

Actually this project was done long back, but unfortunately I was not able to post it. So here it goes…

After taking a long break from card making, I am back to do my favorite course, AECP. Few months back, I came across an Instagram story posted by the president and founder of Altenew, Tasneem. She posted a picture of a pink flower and asked the followers to guess the flower. I doubted if it was belladonna lily. Randomly guessed it and she said that it was the correct answer. I was sure that she was working on something special. A special stamp set or an amazing embossing folder, who knows what is going to come up. So I randomly took a screenshot of that story. Months passed by, Ramadan is here and I received my Build a flower subscription for the month of April and it was the same old belladonna lily, I was really excited to hold it as an wonderful stamp set. That’s when I decided to turn my All About Layering card into a dedication to Tasneem. Eid was ahead and belladonna lily being the final BAF stamp set, were the other reason for me to do that. Lydia Evans has done a wonderful job in explaining every detail about layering stamps, methods and techniques etc.
