Tranquil Tulips, Birthday Card

This is a very fun card to make.  It's also very easy too.  I posted a card yesterday using the "Tranquil Tulips" set and I thought I would come up with one on my own.  So here it is!

I used a folded half sheet of Pool Party cardstock for the base of my card.  Then I cut the front of the card in half at 2-1/8". I saved that piece I cut off and used it for the flower panel.  I did trim that panel to 4-1/4".  The Whisper White piece I stamped on measured 4-1/8" x 2".

I stamped the flower using Pool Party and Old Olive ink. And for the center of the flower I used Early Espresso ink.

The decorative paper is from the "Whole Lots of Lovely" 12" x 12" paper pack.  That pack has so many adorable designs in it.

I wrapped and tied a Whisper White Classic Weave ribbon around the card.  I added the stamped panel using Dimensionals.  Be sure to only add the Dimensionals to the left side of the card or you will be taping your card shut.  And no, I did NOT tape mine shut (this time!!!!).  I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock to the inside and the card was done!  See, I told you it was easy!

This is a very versatile card. It could be used as a birthday, thinking of you, get well or a sympathy card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

So appreciate your clean and simple designs. I often struggle to create a card and your designs are perfect. I make card sets for a friend as a Christmas gift and use many of your designs. Thank you so very much for sharing your creations.
