Tulips and Hope

The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and baby oil for blending.

The Scor-Pal was used to scor the grid on the background pane. The circles were cut with the Cuttlebug using the Tiny Tags die. The circles are glued to the card with Aleene’s tacky glue, I squeeze out a little glue, touch the pin to the glue then to the back of the circle and pick it up to place on the card, press down with the finger and pull away the pin; you’ll have a little time to slide into place if needed.

The image panel and sentiment panel are mounted on foam tape.

For the sentiment panel I embossed the line while the cardstock was still in the die using a metal ball stylus and avoided going over the image.

To stamp the single image on the inside and envelope I masked off the rubber with a sticky note before inking up, don’t forget to remove the mask before stamping!  This procedure was also done with the sentiment, the full saying is:
Cherish Yesterday
Dream Tomorrow
Live Today
Hope Forever
