Flowering Tulips Birthday Card by Secrets To Stamping

Sisterhood of Crafters has a new challenge starting today, “For a Lady: Feminine with Flowers” – chosen by Sistah Annie. I don’t know about you but I am ready for spring, so this theme was perfect for me. Firstly, to chase the winter doldrums away, I went for bright, beautiful colors with the Flowering Fields designer paper. Then, I used my favorite flowers in the new Stampin’ Up bundle, Flowering Tulips. I just love how this card turned out!

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Sisterhood of Crafters Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before the deadline of February 20th!

My secrets to making this project

  • Firstly, the card base is 6″ square – 12″ x 6″ and scored at 6.”
  • After that, I cut the Flowering Fields designer paper to a 5-3/4″ square. Then, cut the Tulip designer paper to a 4-3/4″ square and layered it onto white cardstock.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Once the card base was completed, I cut out the pieces of the Tulips dies in both Poppy Parade and Calypso Coral. Before I started piecing them together, I sponged the Calypso Coral ones with a light dusting of Poppy Parade. I’m not sure if you can see that in the photos but the little color is nice on them.
  • Then, I stamped the stems and leaves with Old Olive ink and cut them out.
  • Using the oval die, I cut out white cardstock and arranged the flowers, stems and leaves with glue.
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die and popped it up with dimensionals over the stems.
  • Finally, to add just a tad more femininity to the card, I made a triple loop bow with Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon and colored a few Polished Dots with the dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends marker.

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
