Embellished flowersLayer flowers together and adhere. Use details such as inked edges, stitching and a little or a lot of bling. Make several of these flowers to your hearts content and make several cards at once so you will have them on hand for later use. 

Stamping a card 
Chose a relavent sentiment such as this one that says “Friends are flowers in the garden of life.”” Or chose several different sentiments such as “Thank you” or “Happy Birthday” if you are making more than one card. Stamp in black ink.

Sewn border on cardI chose to sew my border using a machine, black thread and straight stitch.
