Vellum Flowers

 I have been wanting to make some vellum flowers so I stamped and embossed these flowers and leaves with white embossing powder. I had recently made some envelopes with these papers since there were many of the same style in the pack and I had these thin strips left over laying on my desk, I wondered if they would make a pretty background so I cut a piece of thin cardstock the size of my card front and started gluing them on, I thought it turned out pretty so I used that for my background and added a few gold and white sequins.

I stamped and embossed the sentiment on vellum too to keep with the theme of the card.

  • Prickley Pear - Hibiscus 2 stamp, embossed white powder
  • Gina Marie - Birthday words stamp
  • scraps paper
  • Sequins

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Be still my heart! Connie, this is pure GORGEOUSNESS!!! How rich and regal your golden background is, diagonally “paper pieced” in that fashion. The embossed vellum flowers bring even more elegance to your masterpiece. It’s lovely! Thanks for sharing and inspiring me today. Hugz, de
