Tulip Card

Today's project is for card-makers out there.  I love to make cards for all occasions.  The tulip card I created is one that can be adapted for general greetings, birthdays, thank-you's, etc.

Keep the layout but change the tulip stamp to some other flower stamp.  Have fun with different lace border punches.  Try different colour combinations.

Sometimes I think you just need a basic layout to guide you and your imagination does the rest. I am including the instructions I wrote and use in workshop classes. Have Fun!
