The Timeless Tulips Stamp Set is a great way to bring in spring! I made this card so that it could be displayed all season.
- Paper Cuts–
- Basic White Card Stock: 4 X 5-1/4 (2 each), approximately 8-1/2 X 5-1/2 for 10 tulips
- Granny Apple Green Card Stock: 11 X 4-1/4 and 5-1/2 X 4-1/4
I cut the pieces per the list above. I scored the piece of Granny Apple Green Card Stock at 2-3/4 from one end and at 5-1/2.
I stamped 5 large tulips with Daffodil Delight Ink and 5 large tulips using Highland Heather Ink. Punch the tulips out using the Tulip Builder Punch. See the Tips and Tricks section for a paper saving tip.
I stamped the card front using the small tulips in Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight Ink. I added leaves with Granny Apple Green Ink.
I placed 9 of the punched tulips on the card front where they looked best. I then used washi tape to hold together the bottom 5 tulips. I turned this cluster over and taped them together so that I could pop them up on dimensionals. I removed the washi tape carefully.
I adhered the 3 remaining tulips in place.
I adhered the tulips on dimensionals to the card front.
I adhered the card front to the top section of the card using Tear and Tape.
For the inside of the card, I stamped a tulip using Daffodil Delight Ink to the card liner. I should be placed approximately so the top of the tulip is at the middle of the card. I stamped the sentiment and the stems and leaves using Granny Apple Green Ink. The extra tulip is used to hold the card up. I adhered it using dimensionals. I adhered this entire assembly to the inside of the card. Don’t forget to decorate the envelope.
Tips and Tricks:
Stamp the tulips starting in the lower left side of the paper.
When you punch the tulips out, start with the tulip on the left. When you punch the next one the leaf that is also on the punch will punch where the previous tulip was. This will save paper by not punching extra leaves out of the paper.
