Hello fellow crafters, today I’d like to share with you these wonderful Tulips just in time for Spring! How lovely on a Mothers Day card!
Spring Tulips Free SVG Tutorial
Start out by cutting out all the pieces in the file.
Next I shaded the edges with my ColorBox Chalk Queue Ink Pad.
I LOVE these for ease of use and the look that I get from them. I choose a darker color than the paper and brush the chalk over the edges, if there are corners you have trouble getting into I chalk up a Q-tip and use that.
One more tip I’d like to impart…after trying many types of glue I recommend Art Institute Glitter Designer glue, it dries clear and has a little give, a lot of glues I’ve tried once you lay it down you can’t move it…this is a fast drying glue but you can move it around right after you place it and I rarely get my pieces perfect the first time LOL. I use it with the Art Glittering System Ultra Fine Metal Tip for a more precision placement. Be sure you don’t accidentally grab your sewing pin and stop up the glue with it….I can say from experience that the pin rusts and turns the glue rust and black colored LOL.
Time to put them together! It’s always good to do a dry run first to see where to glue, and then glue them together.
Last I add some highlight lines with a white Uni-ball Signo Angelic UM-120AC Gel Ink Pen 0.7 mm and their ready for your page, card, or wherever you’d like to put them!
