Paper Sizes: Main card is 4.25x5.5", saffron is 4 x 5.25", DSP is 5-1/8" x 3-7/8", the larger square is 3-1/8" and the honey comb DSP on top of it is 3". The smaller rectangle is 3-9/16" x 2.25" and the tulip frame is 3-7/16" x 2-3/16". The brown strip is 1x4.25". Shoo....lots of measuring. One thing I will mention about the square lattice embossing folder I used on the brown strip...the embossing is so tight that it does shrink a little bit when you run it through the big shot. Just keep that in mind if you are counting on an exact size.
After I did the tulip frame, I took 2 scrap pieces of paper and put it over the left and bottom sides of the paper. Then I stamped the flower on it. It gives it a soft outline.
The card that Lee did was much better as far as the coloring on the tulips. She used a marker to color the tulips. It is a pretty technique. I just used daubers. Next time I do this, I'll try the markers. If you do it that way, there won't be any ink in between the tulips. Just a different look.
The bird is popping up on dimensionals and yes, I did use an exacto knife to get between his legs. Kinda tedious, but necessary :)
Ok, here is what you have been waiting for...the very detailed video technique for resizing the framed tulip embossing folder. Get comfortable, I have a feeling it's going to be a long one :)
Dimensions of Frames before embossing:
8 tulips x 11 tulips (5.25x4)
8 tulips x 6 tulips (4x3.25)
6 tulips x 6 tulips (3.25 square)
3 tulips x 8 tulips (4x2)
3 tulips x 2 tulips (2-1/8 x 1-5/8)
1 tulips x 11 tulips (5.25 x 1-1/8)
Once you get the hang of it, you can make any size.
