Miss You Tulip card

Tulips smiling shyly greet the Spring
Tightly closed at first we meet
Tulips slowly open and began to sing
Gaining volume ever sweet!

I found this poem online about tulips. Every year I plan to plant the tulip bulbs so I can enjoy the gorgeous Spring surprise and every year I forget! Well, I guess that's the beauty of being a card maker, I can make beautiful tulips anytime I want and share them with those I love! I wanted to make a tulip themed card so I kind of "shopped" my stash for the supplies. With Spring around the corner it's a great time to go through your craft supplies and organize! Take stock of the things you use and the items that might need a new home.
I made this card using an A2 card base made from smooth white cardstock. I then die trimmed down a piece of cream cardstock to leave about a half inch white border. I ran the cream cardstock through a dotted embossing folder for some added texture.
I then die cut the photo frame 3 times from thick white cardstock and adhered together with liquid glue. I then used some blue and white gingham pattern paper for the background of my photo. I die cut the Miss You sentiment from gold and white cardstock and ahered together with liquid glue and added to the bottom of the photos frame.
I then die a whole bunch of tulips, leaves and stems from white cardstock. I used distress ink to color them and arranged them inside the photo frame with 3d foam squares and liquid glue.
I hope you enjoyed my post today and got some inspiration to make some Spring themed cards. To also shop you stash! I have affiliate links to all the supplies I used below for your convenience. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
