The card was made by taking five 2 1/2" squares. Place the first one as a diamond and then position the other four around it. Cut the excess cardstock that is hanging over the edges and use that for the four small triangles. The scrapbook paper is cut at 2-1/8" rather than 2". It is a relatively easy card to make once you have the pieces all lined up properly.
After I stamped the center image, I turned the vellum over, used the stylus to color in the flowers and stems. This pushed the flowers out on the front. Then I used bright color markers and colored in the flowers on the back so they would subtly show through on the front.

Hello again.....you're really getting me with these neutrals and just a wee bit of accent color. They're catching my eye each and every time. This card is just beautiful, the squares on the diagonal, the vellum, stitching, well gee....just everything. Going to have to case, you've convinced me.
