Flower Shop

This is a card I made for a friends birthday recently, it was the first time I had made the vellum embossed flowers that are so popular at the moment. In this card I stamped and embossed the flowers, cut them out and coloured them on the reverse with the marker pens. Then I stuck them to punched out flowers using the coordinating punch and cardstock. Main reason for this was the only vellum I had was very thin and the flowers were curling after embossing, since making this card I found it works better with thicker vellum but I still like the way this card turned out. I used the Chalk Talk die to cut out a area on the front and the stamped image is behind to create a 3d look, bit hard to see from photo.
