Spring has sprung in my neck of the woods and I couldn’t be happier about the warmer weather! The tulips are blooming and inspired me on this card today featuring the beautiful Tranquil Tulips Stamps.
This is an A2 size card and I began with the lace borders on the left side of the card front. First, I inked a 1” x 7” piece of white cardstock with Lost Shadow Distress ink and placed a doily lace die from the Ribbon & Lace Border Dies face down along one edge. I then placed the straight stitched die from the same dies face down right next to the lace die, taped them in place and die-cut the cardstock. I cut a piece of black cardstock 3/4″ x 7” and die-cut one edge with a small scallop border die from the Ribbon & Lace Border Dies. I adhered the gray piece centered on the black piece and adhered them to the card front. I then trimmed the excess from the top and bottom edges.
To add a little more gray and extra interest, I adhered gray diamonds to a portion of the card front. I first inked a piece of white cardstock with Lost Shadow Distress ink and die-cut it using the lattice portion of the Frilly Frames Lattice Die. I placed the lattice frame on the card front as a guide and adhered the die-cut diamonds in the pattern shown.
Next, I stamped the Tranquil Tulips Stamps on white cardstock and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I adhered them to the card front and trimmed the excess along the bottom edge of the card.
To finish, I stamped the “Thanks” sentiment from the Big Bold Greetings Stamps in Versamark ink on black cardstock, heat embossed it in white and die-cut it using the coordinating dies.
I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
