A Bouquet Of Tulips


Hi everyone!  Today I'm sharing the card I sent my husband's brother and his wife for their wedding anniversary!  Happy Anniversary, Dave and Annette!!!  The card base is Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of dotted Regal Rose patterned paper from the Stampin Up Patterns Pack II.  Next I layered paper pierced Whisper White on to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black.  I wrapped So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon around it and tied a knot in front before centering on the card base.

The stem and leaves were stamped in Wild Wasabi on Whisper White using the Bodacious Bouquet stamp set then cut out and arranged on the card base.  The stems were slid underneath the ribbon so they would start at the bottom of the center piece.  The flowers were stamped in So Saffron on Whisper White cardstock also using the Bodacious Bouquet stamp set then cut out and placed at the top of the stem and leaves.  I used mounting tape to attach the flowers so they would be raised up and give the card more depth.  To finish off the card I added some rhinestones at the center of the flowers.

Wishing you a beautiful day!

Love how your large blooms extend beyond the border of your image panel. The ribbon is a fun accent. I have that Bodacious Bouquet set but haven't used it in ages.
