- First, trim 1/2 inch from one of the long sides and one of the short sides of the white vellum cardstock.
- Next, use olive ink pad to stamp Terrific Tulip stem/leaf several times across the bottom of the vellum cardstock. Allow stems to bleed off bottom of the cardstock.
- Use pale plum ink pad to stamp tulip images just above each stem. Vary the sizes and quantity for most attractive design.
- To add dimension, Gardner uses a double-stamping technique. To do this, first stamp "shadow" leaves over the first leaves and stems using the moss stamp. Stamp shadow leaves in any open spaces next to stems.
