Floral Anniversary Card

What to do with all the small pieces of scrap paper in my stash? Well, I bought a Fiskars flower punch and made a large quantity of flowers while watching TV.
Bag of cut flowers
Some of the flowers were used to make an anniversary card for my daughter Donna and her husband Edwin’s 22nd wedding anniversary.
The 4 X 6 card is made from green cardstock I had in my stash. I embossed vellum (Emagination Crafts) with the Anna Griffin Rosa embossing folder using the Sizzix Big Shot. The flower petals were given a lifted character by rubbing the center of the each flower with the rounded ball of an embossing stylus. Then I adhered two flowers together using Scotch Quick Dry adhesive for each blossom.

The blossoms were adhered to the front of the card with quick dry adhesive. Rhinestones (Studio 18) are adhered to the center of each blossom with quick dry adhesive.

Close up of the sentiment
The sentiment was printed on vellum using Georgia font then adhered to some floral scrap paper in my stash. It’s shape was cut with scissors. Then it was adhered to the front of the card with Glue Arts Perma Tac.
Inside of the card
Printed paper from my stash and vellum were cut and embossed using the Sizzix Big Shot and Spellbinders Label twenty-three. The quote on the floral cut is from a DCWV book of quotes. The message on the vellum was printed using the Georgia font.
The green and white envelope (DCWV paper) was made using Fiskars paper trimmer and the Martha Stewart Scoreboard. It is adhered with Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac. 
NOTE: The vellum is sticky backed.
