Chocolate Baroque Tulips

Hi everybody.  I'm back again with my third and last card for now as part of the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog, and I have opted for a more CAS card this time featuring some lovely tulips from the Spring Bird Tulip set of stamps.  There are some pretty tulips still blooming at the moment which prompted me to use them for this card.

I started by cutting the pierced rectangle with a Crealies die using the grey card, and then cut the Spellbinders Floral Oval from that.  Unfortunately the Crealies die does not seem to be available any longer.

I stamped the flowers on to a piece of white stamping card using Versafine Smokey Gray ink, and coloured them with pencils, using three pinks and a purple for the flowers, and then two greens plus some yellow and brown for the leaves and stems.  I then fussy cut and shaped them a little before adhering them using glue gel to give some dimension.

I stamped the sentiment, again using the Versafine Smokey Gray ink, and then heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder which gives it a darker finish.

After placing the rectangle on to the white 7" x 5" card I inset the oval back within it.
I will be back on Chocolate Baroque later in the year, but for now a big thank you for stopping by today and I'll be back soon.

CAS elegance, Pat! Gorgeous colouring on your tulips. Love the intricate oval die-cut frame. The gray makes a great colour for behind the tulips. Congrast on GDing at Chocolate Baroque! xx
