Now the plan with my card was to layer the Tulip Bouquet die from Memory Box then add the die cut of the dotty paper on top but when I saw the card with the white Tulips I liked it so much that I couldn't add it.
One word of advice if after you add the layered Tulips to the paper and then decide to use the Curved Borders from Spellbinders to do it before you add the tulips. I squashed my tulips and had to add another layer .
My dotty paper is Echo Park Sunny Days Ahead and to make a sentiment I used the Simon Says Stamp Sending die, I can't remember if I layered twice or a third to help it stand out a bit from the white border and dots. Using the word stamp from the Simon Says Stamp Sending Happy Thoughts set I heat emboss with WOW white powder but while it was warm from being heated I added another layer of powder again to help it pop out from the white dots.


There was no way I could send the dotty tulips to the bin so I made a very quick card with some layered white card. Added my tulips in the centre roughly, used the Simon Says Stamp Wishing die same as the sending but just stamped with black ink the sentiment. Added some sequins to stop it looking totally plain. Of course the camera had a hand in turning my pink sentiment into a slightly different shade but it does look better in real life.


So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
