AECP Level 2 Challenge

I'm excited to share another project for my Altenew Educator Certification Program.  I have completed the assignments for Level 2 but still have a final challenge to present.

I has been asked to create a home decor/3D project with a matching tag or card.

I've made paper flowers for years and when I saw the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Sakura Blossom stamps and die set I was so excited.  
The floral dies in this set have score lines for center creases and work very nicely with stamps or plain scrapbook paper.  

For this project I stamped the floral layers and used the dies.  If you want to watch a video of how I constructed the floral stems the link to You Tube is below.

The fun banner on the flower can was created using the Altenew Trigonometry Set.  This set is very versatile.  I stamped several extra triangles when making the banner so what better than to incorporate them into my add-on project.

I made this cute little card that could also be used as a gift tag by just punching a hole and adding ribbon,  it measures 3 3/4 X 4.

First I stamped the all-over background with Altenew Citrus Burst ink.

Then cutting my stamped panel down and mounted on Aqua and Kraft.  After completing my flower can project I had a one remaining flower that I place

Thanks for stopping by today and following my journey.
