Tulip Trio


I'm really excited to share today's card with everyone because the beautiful tulip image is a digital stamp created by Tracey-Lynn Miller, owner of Fred, She Said in honor of the Operation Write Home Half and Half Challenge hosted on the Stars and Stamps blog to inspire the cardmakers in making Mother's Day Cards. Using the Tulip Trio digital image, Darsie Bruno, Designer for Fred, She Said created a fabulous card and tutorial to get us all started. A HUGE thanks goes out to Tracey and Darsie for the wonderful digital image, card and tutorial!

My Tulip Trio card base is Wild Wasabi layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White cardstock then Floral Tapestry: Amethyst patterned paper. The shadow layer is paper pierced dark purple textured paper that I've had soooo long I don't even remember where I got it anymore but it seemed gorgeous on this card so I finally let go and decided to use it! I'm still learning to use those coveted favorite items and haven't quite learned to quit hording them yet, LOL!

The digital image was printed on PTI White using my Epson Photo Printer and colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced the edges then layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock before attaching to the card base with mounting tape. To embellish the card I added two small silver brads on the shadow layer and a metallic silver bow over the tulip stems.


Hope you have a beautiful day!
