Burnt orange cardstock, green cardstock, Fossilized Amber Distress Ink,   glue gun, heat tool, Ranger clear crackle paint, beaded embellishment, double sided tape. 

Cut the white cardstock at 11 inches x 5 1/2 inches.   Score at 1 5/2 inches to create a top-folding card. Cut the burnt orange cardstock at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.  Cut the designer paper from the Camelia Carnation Paper Collection at 5 x 5 inches.  Adhere the layers with double sided tape.  
Stamp the flower petals from the Large Camelia Carnation stamp set onto white cardstock using Peanut Brittle Memento ink.  Cut with the corresponding die.  Stamp the leaves from the corresponding sets using Olive Grove ink onto green cardstock.    Sponge the  center of the flowers with Fossilized Amber Distress ink and the edges with Tangelo.  Sponge the leaves with Olive Grove ink.   Lightly mist and place the petals in the 3D Floral Mold and run through your die/embossing machine.   A small amount of additional shaping was done with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   The petals  were off-set and  adhered  with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. You can refer to the video I have linked  for shaping instructions.  The leaves were slightly shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   A light coat of Ranger clear Crackle Paint was applied to the petals and leaves, sprinkled with Rajni's Frosting Powder and heat set.   The flowers, leaves and pearl embellishments were adhered to the card with a glue gun.
The sentiment was fussy cut from the Camelia Carnation Paper Collection,  tucked under the flowers on the lower left hand side and adhered with Dries Clear Adhesive. 

I hope you have a safe Holiday, a wonderful and prosperous New Year and success in all your endeavors for the 2018!
