This scan does not do justice to how pretty this card is!
It's a full vellum card with a white card glued to the back. The coral frame is glued to the white card (after being centered under the image with the card closed.
The flowers are embossed in white and watercolored with markers and aquapainter. Since the ink dries more slowly on the vellum, you can get some nice shading with markers and aquapainter. I colored the center of the flower and pulled out the color with the aquapainter. I repeated until the center was as dark as I wanted.
Then I used the mat pack and piercing needle to punch the border around the flowers. White gel pen ties in so perfectly with the white embossed flowers!

I love this card - it's so beautiful! Did you attach the white cardstock to the back of the front page of the card?
After seeing this card and your simple flowers card, I visited your gallery. You are a true artist! I favorited many of your cards for inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

the white card inside is not connected to the front. Only the back. The flowers are a bit offset from the circle when the card is open, but I though it looked better that way when the card was closed. The white card is also smaller than the vellum card and is centered on the vellum card so that the fold of the white card is inset from the fold of the vellum card.
