A Pocket Full of Tulips

I only used 3 dies to make this card:  Jeans Pocket, Tiny's Tulip, and a Fern.

To make the tulip buds and blossoms, I cut and embossed with colored cardstock then left the cardstock in the die and sponged on a darker color of ink through the die.

The jean pocket is cut on the back side of a piece of Core'dinations cardstock so the stitched lines would be raised up on the front side of the cardstock.  By doing this, I was able to lightly sand down the stitching to give it a worn effect.

The bow is from an old punch I had but there are many bow dies I could have used.  All of the other products I used to make this card are available at Ecstasy Crafts.
