For the flower loving mom. Fresh-Flowers-In-A-Vase card bouquet
Punch and stamp several flower shapes. Run floral wire through a pearl bead,
bend, go through the center of the flower, and twist the short end behind the
flower. Thread your flowers through two holes in your card base to hold the
flowers together in a bouquet.

Handwrite your sentiment on a strip of paper, fold back on either side of the
