My Goal for this Pretty Get Well Card was to have realistic looking tulips. I am quite happy with the result. The card is a little ‘fiddley’ because of the burnishing to give the tulips that realistic look. I used the back of my pokey tool to add dimension to the petals. You could easily use a ball tool to get the same look. There is quite a lot of fussy cutting for the stems and leaves, however, I think it is worth the effort.
I used Granny Apple Green for the Card Base, 8 ½” by 5 ½“ scored and folded at 4 ¼“, 2 pieces of Whisper White 4” by 5 ¼ “, plus a large piece of scrap for the flowers leaves and stems. The striped paper is from the Golden Honey Specialty DSP, black and white stripes and is cut 2 ¼” by 4”. There is also a tulip on the inside with a small scrap of the black and white paper.
