Thank you with dainty vellum flowers

These pretty pink petunias are perfect to say "Thank you", "I am thinking of you", "Happy birthday" or "Hoping you feel better soon". I made this card to say thank you to someone for a special treat.

The steps below explain how to make the vellum flowers for the card. While I was busy with them, I also made some in clear acetate - heat embossed but not coloured.

Heat emboss several small and large classic petunias with Versamark ink and superfine white embossing powder onto heavy vellum paper.

Colour the vellum flowers at the back with Ranger archival ink vibrant fuchsia and a dauber.

Use a deep green ink such as Artistry green garland to colour the leaf sets.
Cut out the flowers and leaves using the co-ordinating dies.

 Pinch the petals of all the flowers on the middle line of each petal to shape. The photo shows both vellum and acetate flowers.

Layer two flowers of the same size onto each other. I found that a hot glue gun works best for the acetate. Finish the flowers with a crystal-like centre.


Die-cut the square element and the sentiment from the butterfly kisses die set in white cardstock.

Assemble the card by gluing the square element onto the printed paper. arrange and adhere the flowers and leaves. Add the sentiment and the dew drops last.

I hope you like the card and taht you will take a few seconds to leave me a comment.

Have a great day
