Vellum flowers

The challenge this week at Joan's Gardens is to make a card using creating a vellum flower, using red, white, and black, and a die-cut border.  The vellum flower is cut from Sweet Stamps Parchment Craft Vellum that I got at Joan's Gardens with edges of the flower punched with a Fiskars Emboss punch.  The design for the flower was inspired by Marcia Moss, owner of Dandylion Wishes, St. George, UT who had some of these punch edged flowers on display for one of her card-making classes at the store. I rolled the edges of the cut square with a quilling pen to shape the vellum petals, then adhered the tw- layer petals, and topped them with a stamen punch that I got at Joan's Gardens.  The paper is Recollections red dot, and the cardstock is black shimmer paper  by Ranger.  The die cut I used for the edge is Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Petal ES006.  The pearl is from my stash and the black die cut accent on the cardfront is Spellbinders Shapeablities Die D-Lites S2-009.   The frames for the flip out area are diecut from Spellbinder Labels 17  (S5025) then a rectangle over and double  punched with the matching flower edge punch, and the sentiment on the inside is a Vintages Verses stamp (Stampin Up) The whole card is edged in either black-diamond sticker strips by Starform, or Stickles Clear Diamond.  The Flip It Die is one of several of this type by Sizzix #658704 and it is a rectangle flip-it.  .All the dies and many of the products I used are available to order from Joans Gardens.
