Timeless Tulips – Makeover Monday

 

Welcome to Makeover Monday!!

 

Birthday Card created with Stampin' Up's Timeless Tulips stamp Set, #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #Birthday, #Handmade Cards, #Makeover Monday

 

Today’s card is a “stepped up” version of yesterday’s Simple Sunday card.  I kept the color palette the same, however, I added some designer series paper, some embellishments and a die cut.  It is amazing how you can enhance the look of a card by just adding a few elements.

I added some designer series paper and baker’s twine on the inside as well.

Easter card created with Stampin' Up's, Springtime Joy stamp set. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #Easter crafts, #Handmade cards, #Makeover Monday

When crafting, I tend to prefer to add different elements and layers.  In my opinion, I believe a card or project looks finished with a little bit of detail.  What do you think?

For today’s Makeover Monday card, I did just that.  I added a little more color, and some rhinestones.  The silver sprig is from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper pack.  (It is on the Last Chance list).  I turned it over and embossed that back side with Silver Embossing Powder.

Today’s Makeover Monday card has just a few differences than yesterday’s Simple Sunday card.  

To start with, I stamped and die cut the image on a piece of Basic White that measures 2-3/4 X 3-1/2.   After coloring the image, I adhered it with Dimensionals, on a piece of Basic White that was embossed with the Subtle EF.

Today’s card has more detail that the Simple Sunday version.

I also using slightly more designer series paper and embossed the Basic White panel with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
