Handmade Congratulations Greeting Card / Long - Skinny Card with Paper Flower Tutorial

long skinny card

Hello all! I made a long and skinny card. This one was very simple and easy to make. The idea of making long and skinny card came from Mojo Monday sketch. The finished size of the card is 3.5" X 8.5". I used Fresh Floral Stack pattern paper from DCWV. Both the flowers were handmade using EK Sucess medium retro flower punch. I used Die-Namics Fancy Flourish die on the background.

Leaves were punched out using Punch-Bunch punch. I added some Pearls and Rhinestones to finish off the card.
