When we get back to traveling again, one of the places that I would dearly love to see is the Netherlands in springtime. In the meantime, I can indulge my fantasies by creating an iconic dutch scene with the beautiful Tulip Fields stamp set and coordinating Windmill Fields Dies from the Flowering Fields Suite.

It's the two triangle stamps in the Tulip Fields stamp set that create the seemingly, endless rows of blooming flowers. Here are the steps for stamping these tulip fields with an eye-catching vanishing point.
- Begin by stamping the large horizon piece to set the scene. I have stamped mine in Daffodil Delight ink.
- Then centre the single wedge image in the middle and stamp it so the points align. Think of it like a "T". I have stamped this row of flowers in Petal Pink ink.
- You then want to work your way out from the middle to meet the stamped horizon. So, next, stamp the same wedge image on either side of the middle field of flowers. I stamped this in Poppy Parade ink.
- And lastly, stamp the last two flower wedges to complete the tulip fields. These are stamped in Highland Heather ink.
Then all you need to add is a windmill, trees, or fences on the horizon to enhance the scene!
The card you see is currently folded flat for popping inside an envelope. However, this is a fun-fold card called a Reverse Easel Card and it stands up like this...
I love how the stamped tulip fields come together to create this beautiful, feminine birthday card. This Reverse Easel Card would also make a lovely Mother's Day card too!
