Hello and welcome...
I will start with an apology as the top right corner of the card seems to bend slightly, it's not, it's a shadow from the window blind!

I started with an 8" square, white base card and embossed another piece of white card to diagonally fit to the bottom of it.   I used a wet glue to adhere this to the card

The sentiment was then stamped and heat embossed using a  'metallic copper' embossing powder

I then used both flowers from the Bold Blooms Stamp Set, stamped and heat embossed with a true white embossing powder onto vellum

Using 3 different colours of felt tipped pens, a pale lemon, an orange and a muted green,  by Whispers Strokes (they don't have a named colour on them, just the coloured caps) I coloured the flowers from the back of the vellum then hand cut them

I adhered the flowers onto the card using a glue dot behind both flower head centres and a little bit of wet glue to the stem of the smaller one and overlapped it onto the bigger flower stem

I then made a row of faux pearls with a PVA glue, along the diagonal embossed card

To complete I stamped the largest flower to the corner of the insert using an Archival Ink pad in 'coffee' and also stamped the verse with the same ink pad

I stamped both flowers to the bottom left corner of the envelope, again using the same ink pad
