What can be a better sign of spring than blooming tulips? While the weather outside is nothing like a sunny spring day, this card will bring spring to your heart. The tulips are made with 3 of the wings from the Extra Large Two-step Bird punch from Stampin' Up! I drew the stems and leaves by hand using an Always Artichoke Stampin' Write marker. The vase is the ornament punch trimmed a bit and then run through the Big Shot using the Finial Press embossing folder. I added a touch of bling with the self-adhesive rhinestones from the Eggcellent Eggs Kit found in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I never dreamed I would be so addicted to using the Big Shot on cards! I previously associated die cutting machines with scrapbooking, yep. This is one of the cards we made at our Punchy Flowers workshop last Friday.
