2 Ways to Use Gradient Cardstock + Video! Take 2 with Therese

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it’s Therese and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese.

Today, I am sharing two card ideas using Altenew’s Gradient Cardstock Sets and the Festive Foliage Die Set.

I started with a Christmas card design and created a negative cut Christmas tree with Red Cosmos Gradient Cardstock stripes.

Next, I added a sentiment from the Modern Poinsettia Stamp Set.

And, finally, I added a Holiday Bow on top.

My second card design is for Valentines and this time I created a full panel of the Pale Gray and Red Cosmos Gradient Cardstock stripes.

I used a sentiment from the Plentiful Pine Stamp Set, some Red Cosmos Enamel Dots.

Really gorgeous!! I’m going to have to re-evaluate my dies for others that could be used this way. I love that script –

Both cards are so cool, but I’m not sure I have the patience, especially for the heart card. Can I just have yours??

Wonderful way to extend or even expand paper color options. Now I’m feeling like I should never toss out scraps. When you chopped up the stamped sentiment though, I almost lost it. Sometimes I don’t cut sheets correctly when I try to halve them. So, I’m glad you talked through that step with other options in the video.
