I first gathered all the left over flowers and lightly sprayed them with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Sheer and Gold. Then I placed a paper towel over my mouse pad (so as not to get spray pigment on my mousepad) and used my Spellbinders Tool ‘n One with the medium sized stylus to hand emboss the flower petals into rounded curves from the back side of the flowers. Then I flipped over the flowers and pushed their centers with the stylus to get a simple shaped flower.
I then played with the placement of the various flower sizes, and decided that a small to large cluster of flowers forming a kind of swoop would look lush and luxe. Lastly I used self-adhesive flat back pearls to dot each flower center, using varying sizes to match the sizes of the flowers. To fill in a few gaps between the flowers I added a few extra flat back pearls to the card front. Easy peasy, clean and simple, super dimensional floral card that can be used for weddings, anniversaries, engagements or any time!
