Hi, Stampers. Early last month I shared THIS POST with you featuring the Flowering Tulips bundle. These cards are very similar but in different colors.
This card started with a Poppy Parade card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, followed by a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ layer of Flowering Fields DSP. Next, the Stitched So Sweetly Dies were used to die cut a layer of Basic White CS. (Those are now retired, but the Scalloped Contour Dies are very similar and could be used instead).
Using the the Tulip Dies, I die cut the pieces to the tulip out of Poppy Parade CS and the leaves / stem out of Garden Green CS..
Stampin’ Tip: Before removing the Poppy Parade CS from the tulip dies, I sponged Poppy Parade ink onto the flowers, giving them more detail.
The pieces were then added to the card front and a few Brushed Brass Butterflies were added to finish it off.
This card is almost a direct copy of the prior post but uses a different DSP.
The card starts with an Evening Evergreen card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, followed by a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS. Before adhering it to the card, I dry embossed this layer using the Gingham Embossing Folder and added the ribbon.
I used Pear Pizzaz CS for the stem and leaves this time and sponged some Pear Pizzaz ink on the tips of the leaves.
Here is a good look at the tulips – this shows how the Tulip Dies go together to create a great 3D effect. (More info in the diagram and video below).
Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS with the sentiment and flowers stamped in Highland Heather ink. The stem / leaves / grass were stamped in Pear Pizzaz ink. This diagram (below) is a great reference on how to assemble the tulips.
