A Tulip in Full Bloom

Hi there!

Since we are we coming to the end of the tulip planting season, I thought it would be a good time to make a card featuring a tulip in full bloom.  It reminds me of the warmer weather that comes with Spring and the beautiful flowers that get revealed once the snow has gone.

To make this card, I used up some scraps I had in my stash – leftover pieces of water colored paper and some corrugated scraps I had laying around.  

After die cutting and assembling all the pieces for my tulip, I die cut a few hexagons out of my main panel and decided on how I wanted the overall layout of my card to look. I propped the panel up on my card base with foam adhesive, making sure to tuck the corrugated pieces behind the hexagon openings.  I just love the added texture these corrugated pieces bring!

Once the panel was ready, I added my tulip and splattered the card using some diluted black acrylic paint.

I die cut my sentiment 5 times out of black card stock and layered them together to give the sentiment some dimension.  I adhered it to my card front, just slightly under the leaf for the tulip.

I so appreciate you stopping by my blog today and I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
