Cascading Flowers Card with Stickers from Dollar Tree

Simple, quick, and beautiful…just the way it should be to make a handmade card! That’s the way I’d describe the card for today. The flowers are 3_D Pop up stickers from the Dollar Tree.

As you can see from the image above, I deliberated between a sticker and a heat embossed word for the greeting. Which one do you like better?

This card was made using two colors of vellum: pink and frosted white. The pink was cut with a die from Avery Elle called, “Dotted Borders” which cuts a curved line. The curve isn’t visible once the card is complete, it simply gives us a guide for placing the flowers. I adhered the vellum with vellum adhesive from plus corporation.

Once the flowers were placed, I trimmed the white frosted vellum to size (about 5.5″ x 3″) and heat embossed the word “love” from a stamp set from the dollar tree. I show a word sticker as an option in the photos. Next, I put vellum adhesive only along the bottom edge of the frosted white vellum and put it on my card-base. I had to lift up a couple of the stickers and replace them but that was easy and didn’t cause a problem. Watch how the card was made in the video below:
