Guneaux Designs First Blooms
Do you have a favorite spring flower? Mine is a tulip, and when I lived in Northern Virginia, I had a beautiful tulip garden with many varieties and colors. I miss my garden as living in southwest Florida, tulips are shipped in and will not grow in a garden! Thus, I get satisfaction by making cards with tulips. This card is a Guneaux Designs First Blooms card. It features Penny Black’s First Blooms dies.
I die cut the tulips from white card stock and colored them peach and yellow with green stems using Copics Sketch Markers. I used a stylus and foam pad to shape the flowers.
The other feature on the card is the gorgeous frame. I cut the frame from white card stock using the Impression Obsession Ornate Square Frame Dies. The frame cuts out two square frames and one square. I wanted to try the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks which I purchased recently. I used them to color the square and square frame, leaving the ornate frame white.
When assembling the card, I glued four of the ornate frames together and cut another one and added two rows of foam tape to get dimension. I added this frame on top of the others.
Enjoy Guneaux Designs First Blooms card, and have a wonderful day!
