Tulip Card Tutorial

Hey there, everyone!  I was looking back at some of my favorite projects this year and found that I never posted this one here on my blog!  I made this for my mom for Mother's Day.  I'd put off posting it until after she saw it in person and then totally forgot to come back and share!  So, here you go!

Happy Scrappy Wednesday, everyone!! With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to share with you a simple, but beautiful (if i do say so myself) card that would be perfect for Mom, or can easily be changed to suit many different occasions. And, the tulips are in full bloom around here, these days so I was inspired!

First, I created my card base and then I cut nine ovals using my Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Oval Dies. I decided to make all of my tulips yellow, but they would be pretty in any color!
 
Then, I cut some foam tape into a shape and size similar to my ovals. I adhered the tape to the back of what will be the middle oval/petal of my flower. Then, I added my two other ovals on either side of the middle petal to create my tulip shape.
 

Here is what my three tulips look like once they are all assembled.
 

Then, I added my tulips to my card and added a few final touches. Simple, but sweet!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my card and that you’re inspired to try one of your own! I think I’m going to make a few of these as thank you cards for the kids’ teachers this year!
Have a fantastic week!
