Altenew : Polychromatic

Playing with the colors red and green Today, I am sharing a card project that I created for the Altenew Academy Polychromatic class taught by Nina-Marie Trapani. In this class, Nina discussed tips and tricks to effectively use multi-colors and color combinations to make cards that pop. One of the simplest, and one of my most favorite ways to add color, is to have a crisp white background to balance out the bright hues and allow them to take center stage.  So, I chose a simple layering stamp set to play with a color combo of red and green popping up in the white background.


  1. Create a “4 1/4 x 5 1/2 ” card base from Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock.
  2. Run it through the 3D embossing folder
  3. Stamp the floral image on a Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock
  4. Stamp different layers of rose and the leaf in different variations of the same color
  5. Stick them on the main cardstock using double sided foam tapes
  6. Stamp the sentiment on a thin strip of cardstock and stick it on the base card
