ID: MC Aug/12 - Tulips For You card
size: 4.25"w x 5.5"h

Created: Aug 5, 2012

I wanted to use my new Memory Box Dancing Tulips die that I just got and I wanted it to be rather simple, or as simple as I can make it...

I'm using a great Nature Quote Marks stamp and part of the 10 tiny sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design

I side folded a white cardstock, and ran through my machine twice with the lace edge folder from the Cuttlebug "Nouveau" set. Hit the high points and some low one... with Perfect Medium and embossed with Pearlescent embossing powder. Love the look the pearlescent gives. Adhered the deep pink narrow ribbon down the center of the two embossed lace lines.

Sponged Distress Antique Linen lightly and then some Spun Sugar. Used Tim's distresser for the edges and then added more Spun Sugar. Embossed  with the Crafts Too "Bamboo" folder and my rubber mallet. Very lightly sponged with a dirty green sponge. Added various colors of shaped rhinestones for the wings of the butterflies.

Wrote in my word "Tulips" with a pointed pen and Sumi ink. Stamped the rest with Versafine Black Onyx.

Die cut my tulips, 3 times and colored with Distress yellows and a touch of Persimmon and the leaves with various greens, and the stems with a bit of brown. Cut out a simple vase shape from a white pearlized textured paper (Paper Roots stash). Assembled and adhered the bouquet behind the vase, then onto the card front. Added a flourish of white half pearls.
