Flower

Stamp 3 flowers in dark orange ink on the light orange paper. Cut these out using the matching Blossom 2 Nestabilities dies. Clip between the petals. Use the largest stylus from the Paper Blossoms toolkit to distress and curl the petals, rolling the tool on the back of the flowers on a soft surface. Adhere the flowers into a stack using glue. Finish up the flower with a matching adhesive gem in the center.

Assembly

Start the Kraft card stock, measuring 3 3/4" x 11", and score it at 5 1/2". Fold the card along the score line, and use a punch to round the lower corners. Stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner using brown ink. Cut a piece of designer paper measuring 2" x 2 1/2", and round 2 corners. Mount the designer paper in the upper left area of the card, leaving a margin at the top. Mount the flower in the center of the designer paper.
