Timeless Tulips in Spring

Tulips are a part of Spring, that's for sure. Where I live in Washington State, we have an area called Mount Vernon, that has several large tulip farms. Tourists flock there each April to view the pretty blooms. It is quite spectacular! Google it and see for yourself!

This card was inspired by Nancy Novak, but I changed it up a bit.

This card design has so many possibilities - Birthday, Mother's Day, Hello, Thinking of You, Get Well and what else can you think of?

Cutting Dimensions in inches:

Petal Pink Card base - 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper - 2 x 5-1/4

First Basic White Layer - 4 x 5-1/4 and another for inner card layer

Petal Pink piece before die cut - 3-1/4 x 4-5/8

Stamped on Basic White Layer before die cut - 3 x 4-1/8

Hello tag - 3/8 x 4

Basic White Strip for the 3 tulips - 1-1/2 by 8-1/2

Helpful Construction Hints:

1. Die Cut the Basic White prior to stamping the stems and leaves.

2. Tie ribbon in a knot first, then tie the bow. Easier to handle. 

3. Stamp the tulips on the narrow strip. Punch one out, tear or cut off remaining frame and continue to second tulip and so on. This is a more efficient way than wasting the white cardstock by punching leaves you won't need.

4. After making and tying the Hello tag, do secure it down with a mini dimensional to the card front.
