I love this card... I don't usually start a blog post by saying that but I really like how this turned out.
This is for a special friend and it is actually a birthday card. I recent purchased a set of stamps from Altenew and they are tulip stamps (it also comes with a set of dies). They are quite difficult to stamp as they are triple stamping stamps. I had to PRACTICE a lot and am still learning the exact placement of some of them. I found this idea on Pinterest (Susi Kelly) and altered it a bit for what I wanted. I love how the tulips and leaves have so much dimension.
The word BEAUTIFUL was stamped over three layers of cardstock already adhered down so a thin black marker helped to fill in the small gaps that were left open. I didn't actually stitch in the holes but left them open for the effect.
I hope my friend loves this card as much as I do. The inside is finished as well in the same style.
