Timeless Tulips and Petal Labels for Kylie's International Blog Hop


Hi, Everyone!
First, I want to say I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop April 2020 hosted by Kylie Bertucci! I earned this honor with my card, Elegant Ornate Edges in Black and White, placing in the top 10 of Kylie's April, 2020, International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my card!

The theme for our cards is thank you, and what better time than now to say a great big Thank You to everyone who has done their part in making our world a safer place. Now on to my card.
If you love delicate and ornate, then you're going to love this card! The Stampin' Up!® Tulip Builder punch is the focal point of this thank you card. I used the Perennial Essence Vellum in So Saffron and Petal Pink to construct the tulips by punching 2 sets. The leaves were punched out of Old Olive vellum. I overlapped the pieces and adhered them with glue dots.
Measurements for the card itself are as follows:
          Pool Party 4 1/4" x 11" (Scored at 5 1/2" and 2 3/4"), 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", 2" x 3"
          Whisper White 4" x 5 1/4"
          Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper 5" x 3 7/8" 

Cut the Whisper White piece with the largest Petal Labels die. Adhere the Parisian Blossoms paper behind the cut-out oval. Below is the Petal Label die (pictured in Pool Party instead of white so it would show up better) and the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper I used. Adhere the designer paper behind the Whisper White piece. A piece of Scalloped Lace Trim was adhered around the bottom of this piece, which was then adhered to the 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Pool Party piece.


Next, adhere the Whisper White piece that you have backed with the Pool Party piece to the bottom half of the card front. Now is a good time to apply those beautiful tulips and a bow made from the Scalloped Lace Trim.
Stamp your sentiment on Whisper White with Pool Party ink and cut with the oval in the Petal Labels set. Cut a Pool Party piece with the smaller Petal Label die and adhere the sentiment in the center. To make the sentiment pop and raise it up higher, I cut a Whisper White oval with the 4th from largest oval from the Layering Ovals die set, and adhered the sentiment piece to it. I then applied it to the bottom inside with dimensionals for my easel to have a stopping point.

I hope you like the card I created and be sure to check out all the amazing creations the other blog hop participants have created. Take a look at the list below to see who's next, after me, Robbie Susan Chandler.
