Anyway, a couple of weeks back I needed a few birthday cards, and unfortunately a sympathy card, so with Spring on my mind I went upstairs and quickly stamped out a few clumps of tulips from stamp set 491: Tulips from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I brought the images, a few Copic markers and a pair of scissors back down to the house and sat in front of a nice warm fire and colored and cut away!
Next day, I had five of the tulip clumps to work with and decided to start with the Sympathy card. I added some Sunny Daze glitter to the tulips with a Sakura Glue pen. I chose my sentiment from Sympathy Set 579 and stamped it in Versamark on cream cardstock and heat embossed with Black Detail. It was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Fancy Tag and before removing the die, I sponged with Memento Dandelion ink.
I liked the ornate look of the tag, so sifted through my die cut drawers to find an appropriate background for my tulips. Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ornate Squares was my die of choice!
I cut and embossed cream card again and sponged with the Dandelion ink before removing that die also. The base was cut off the square so that I could put the tag over the top and make it look like it was a continuation of the background.
I added the die cut to black cardstock and that was layered to a cream base. The tulips were attached with tape at the bottom and dimensionals under the flowers and then I popped up the tag over the bottom of the stems with dimensionals too.
