Make a simple Mother’s Day card featuring the Timeless Tulips stamp set by Stampin’ Up! She’ll so appreciate this handmade floral card.

One of my favorite flowers are Tulips and my mom was born in May, so it just seemed appropriate to create this pretty floral card for both occasions! (You can find all the cards I’ve made with this set here.)

This card looks difficult but is actually easy to put together using both 2-step stamping and repeat stamping! The 2-step stamping was easy to accomplish since the stem and floral images are different stamps. This makes it super simple to add a lot of color quickly and easily.

The repeat stamping was also easy to do for the same reason – stamp all the flowers in different monocramatic tones and then go back in and add the stems. You can find the complete tutorial below.

The color combination on this card features my mom’s favorite color – a reddish pink. Here are the colors I used, aren’t they pretty?
