A friend's birthday is coming up soon and I thought giving a box of handmade cards will be a great gift. Naturally, tulips come in mind as we are moving towards the spring (wink! wink! more wet snow is forecasted in the next few days)!
Using one of my favourite duo technique which is distressing and heat embossing. All the tulips come in different colours which is the closest to the Hero Arts colour challenge. I used distress colours for all the tulips and sprayed with glimmer mists and heat embossed in clear to achieve the the dew drops look.
All the backgrounds are stamped with two different stamp sets, heat embossed in white and distressed in different colours.
As for the gift box, I made a pizza-box version and made a matching top as well. The side is punched with MS border punch.
This project also enters into the following challenge A Blog Named Hero
Closer peep at the dew drops. The tulips are distressed in lavender and ice-spruce. To my surprise, I love how the mixed turned out!
