MY NEW FAVORITE CARD MAKING TOOL
As an Altenew Educator I have had the privilege to design cards and paper projects to showcase Altenew’s newly released projects/sets. Such awesomeness!!! One of the new tools for me is the Debossing Detail Plates. An awesome new addition to my Altenew collection and it is the perfect tool to create beautiful textured backgrounds. Here are the cards I created using the Dotted Swiss Debossing Plate.
ALTENEW DOTTED SWISS DEBOSSING PLATE
Using the Altenew Dotted Swiss Debossing Plate I created several different backgrounds. For one card, I inked the layered stencil and then used the Dotted Swiss debossing plate for texture and visual interest for a simple card front. I added Altenew silver glitter washi tape and an inked, stamped and die cut sentiment.
For the Altenew Hello card, I inked and blended Altenew yellow ink cubes to create an inked background. I die cut the Hello from glossy black paper and die cut several other pieces for a layered piece. A stamped and die cut sentiment and some clear sequins to complete the card.
For the last Altenew card, I debossed white card stock for the card front. The flower image was stamped and painted using Altenew ink cubes and was die cut and die cut a second time from white card stock for added dimension. A gold shimmer paper was die cut using Altenew Fine Frames diamond nesting dies. Stamped sentiments strips were added to the card front.

Thanks so much Donna! Happy stamping!
Lovely cards! I really like that debossing plate, too!
Me too! Such a versatile tool! Thanks for stopping by!
Yes! my new favorite stamping tool!
Your cards are beautiful. Love the yellow one, perhaps because I rarely work with yellow, but I should. Great uses for the perforated background dies.
Thank you Linda! I tried yellow and loved the way it came out! I was surprised too! Outside my comfort box!
Love the blue card.
Me too! Some times less is more! Thanks.
Such a great technique, Nancy. Thanks for the wonderful Altenew inspirations.
Gorgeous cards! I love the debossed backgrounds!
Thanks! My new favorite for easy backgrounds. Thanks!
Very pretty cards. I think I need to try out the debossing tool. It looks like a great background. Thanks for sharing.
Oh yes. I used that same debossing plate many time for my Christmas cards this year. This one can pass for snowy wind.
I agree. I just used the same plate for my January snowman card. I posted a photo on Instagram yesterday. Guess we think alike! Thanks.
Awesome cards! The embossing plate is my favorite too!
I have two of them and use them a lot! Thanks for stopping by. 😊
Great projects using the set. Nice to see so many ideas on how to change the look.
