Finally, Card #3

This is the third card for the couple with their anniversary and birthdays on the same day.  I used the SUO Challenge #196 - Spring and Time Out Challenge #105.  Tulips make me smile, maybe because they say spring has actually arrived.  Read on for the details.

Card Base:  Shimmery White CS cut 4-1/4" x 11"; score at 5-1/2".  I rounded the corners of a piece of Pool Party CS using the Envelope Punch Board. The sentiment from the Vertical Greetings stamp set was stamped with Memento Ink.  I then spritzed this piece using a mixture of alcohol and the remains from a Clear Wink of Stella pen in a Stampin' Spritzer.  Added to the card with Fast Fuse.

Image Layer:  Tulips, stems and leaves are from the Tranquil Tulips stamp set.  This is a two-step stamp set with a watercolor look.  The tulips were stamped with Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry inks on Whisper White CS.  The stems and leaves were stamped with Old Olive ink.  I also rounded the corners with the Envelope Punch BoardPool Party 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon was used to tie around the image with a square knot bow.  This layer was also spritzed with the same mixture as above.  A piece of fun foam was added to the back of the image to pop it up on the card.

The Finishing Touch:  I added three Clear Epoxy Shapes - 2 to the flowers and 1 to a leaf for a dew drop effect.

You can't see it in the photo, but there is a lot of shimmer on this card.  This is such a lovely stamp set and I can imagine the tulips in so many colors.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a blessed and safe weekend.
