More Gradient Cardstock Ideas – 2 Ways with Stripes + Video!

Today I share an 2 easy ways to use the new Altenew Gradient Cardstock!  This is part of my Take 2 with Therese video series with Altenew and if you haven’t caught any of these videos before I have a link to my playlist with more inspiration HERE.

Stripes are so versatile and I’m seeing them everywhere at the moment, and for me my renewed love was inspired by my friend Marion’s cards HERE (seriously, you need to check them out)!  And the new Gradient Cardstocks from Altenew couldn’t have arrived at a better time.

I started with a Christmas card where I used the stripes in the negative space of a die cut from the Festive Foliage Die Set.

I added a gorgeous sentiment from the Modern Poinsettia Stamp Set

My second design is for Valentines (but could easily be used for any ‘love’ occasion) and this time I created a full striped panel which I die cut heart shapes from.

I added a sentiment from the Plentiful Pine Stamp Set,

  1. Love all the stripes! I love the Red Cosmos colors too. I have been trying to order that set of gradient cardstock but it is still out of stock. Espiecially like the striped tree with the bow.

  2. Great negative die cut ideas. I like how you added more dimension to the bow with your pencils and the scripty sentiments.

  3. These are both really great and can be applied to other patterns and dies! Thanks for suggesting the both of them! Really love the tree 🌳 one!!! More Christmas card ideas!

  4. Really pretty cards. Love the colors in that red cosmos pack! Great options for scrap usage… and I’m sure I’m not the only one with scraps. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  5. 💕 totally gorgeous. The die cut tree might have to be added to my to do list! Love the shades of pink. Can only guess to why the enamel dots will have to come back to video to confirm😉 as usual I am dashing around!!

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
