Tulip Birthday Cards

Posted by: Gemin General, Projects


The idea for a tulip birthday card started with the CAS Tulip Color Challenge at SplitcoastStampers – what a delicious color palette! But I was also thinking of Sandy’s Color Challenge at The Paper Players, another delicious color palette! Which one should I do…? Decisions, decisions! Make two cards with the same flowers, same layout, but change the color of the flowers to fit each challenge, says my practical mind. Hmm…. yes, I agree, says creative mind (they are not always at odds, you know, LOL!)…and since the colors came from a tulip picture,  why not make dimensional tulips? You know, just like the daffodil one, says creative mind. You’re on to something…says practical mind. Same concept as the daffodil – use a circle punch to punch out a leaf shape, then use those leaf shapes to form tulips! Ahhh, yes!  Worked out perfectly – just cut a small slit at the bottom of that leaf shape, make each cut part overlap to make the leaf have a shallow “cup” – and there, you have a tulip petal! Make three petals, overlap them – and you now have a tulip!

Okay, so now I have the flowers, how do I arrange them? Well, it would take a sketch challenge to inspire me to come up with a good layout.  Thank you BlessingsX3 (Janette) for the sketch, it worked with what I had in my head! So here’s the other card I made for The Paper Players:


Here’s a close up of the tulips:


Papers I used for the flowers came from my paper scraps, but I do know that the card base for the first card is Bazzill, the card base for the second one is a Tim Holtz Distress Collection (Scattered Straw), the stem and leaves are also Bazzill, the white oval is GP; fonts for the sentiment are Albemarle Swash (Birthday) and BernhardFasD(Happy); paper-piercing pattern is from Gem’s Cottage; 1-inch MS circle punch; oval shape was cut on Cricut; adhesives used are mounting tape, rubber cement and Scotch Quick-Dry adhesive.

Gem, both of these cards are so lovely! The piercing on the bottom is so elegant, and the tulip are stunning. The delicate stems are the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players!

First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick
question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out
how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
