I was inspired by a few cards that I saw on Pinterest, one showing some vases on a card and the other 3-D tulips. Tulips are also my favourite flowers, so of course I had to make this "Simply Tulip" card!
|Simply Tulips in a Vase|
|Simply Tulips Zoomed|
Embossing Floral Punch FLP 045
Dee’s Distinctively Floral Leaf 2 IME 077
Nested Rectangle Frame MFD 048
Embossing folder for vase HSF005
White, Purple, Pink, Yellow and green card stock
Double sided tape
Foam tabs white and black
- Cut a piece of card stock 8 ¼” x 81/4” and fold in half lengthwise.
- Cut a piece of card stock 2” x 3 “ . Place this piece of card stock on a scoring board and score lines at ¾”, 1”, 1 ¾”, 2”. Rotate the piece to the side and score a line at 2 ½” and along the top edge.
- Cut out the corner pieces at the bottom to allow you to fold into the vase rectangle shape.
- Use the embossing folder to emboss the front of the vase in a desired pattern.
- Fold and tape the vase together.
- Die cut a frame using the middle rectangle frame.
- Die cut 4 leaves. Curve the leaves and trim them to an appropriate size.
- Punch out one yellow, one purple and one pink flower, emboss the flowers using the embosser.
- To make the tulips: pinch two of the 4 petals together. Mold the tulips by pinching all 4 of the petals together. Open up the tulip again and place double sided tape on the inside of 2 of the petals. Fold up the petals again and use tweezers to hold the tape to the layers.
- Cut a piece of green card stock into a thin strip. Cut a small hole in the bottom of the tulip and slip the strip up into the tulip. Attach the stem to the inside of the tulip with a black foam tab. This will look like the black stamens inside real tulips and keep the strip inside.
- Repeat step #9 for the remaining tulips.
- Score the front of the rectangle card as desired.
- Attach the frame to the card using foam tape.
- Attach the vase to the card using foam tape.
- Arrange and add the tulips and leaves as desired using foam tabs.
