Hi everyone! Today we will use some of those tulips and leaves that we made last week. I was inspired by Su Mohr, a very talented fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. This Mother’s Day tulip card came together quickly. I love how the partial embossing and the rounded corners step up the design.

Does anyone remember the song by Al Dubin? Tip-Toe Thru’ the Tulips with Me? I can remember hearing it sung by Tiny Tim and it still makes me smile.

Tip-toe through the window
By the window, that is where I’ll be
Come tip-toe through the tulips with me
Tip-toe from the garden
By the garden of a lily tree
And tip-toe through the tulips with me
Knee deep in flowers we’ll stray
We’ll keep the showers away
And if I kiss you in the garden
In the moonlight, will you pardon me?
And tip-toe through the tulips with me

On with today’s project.

3 tulips on Mother's Day card

CREATING THE PIECES AND PARTS (use any die-cutting and embossing machine)

  1. Stamp 3 tulips and 6 leaves in several colors and punch. TIP: We got into tulip mode and stamped and punched several colors of tulips to use on future projects.

  4. Stamp and emboss the sentiment.


  1. Round outside corners of card using the Detailed Trio punch
  2. Use Tear-n-Tape along the edge of the embossing and add 6″ of ribbon. Trim even with card base.
