This A2 card was started with a white base.  Cutting 2 additional pieces of the same white cardstock (less 1/8" on each side - or 2 pieces 5 1/4" x 4 1/4") which I then "painted" with Folk Art #2875 Jellybean Pink Extreme Glitter and #2887 Pink Rouge Pearl Acrylic Paints from Plaid

 I cut some small pieces of vellum and experimented with various white embossing products I had on hand.  I decided to use the Recollections Snow Detail Embossing Powder (Michael's Crafts)

The two smallest flowers on the Camellia 2014 Stamp Set from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps were stamped with VersaMark Dazzle Archival Oil Based Watermark Stamp Pad (Tsukineko) and heat embossed.
 A little bit of Recollections Extra Fine Snow Glitter was added using a Martha Stewart Crafts glittering glue and fussy cut the images once they were dry.  I would do this process AFTER cutting the images as I lost some of the glitter as I moved the paper while cutting the vellum.

The top layer was attached with an ATG, and stamped my "LOVE" sentiment (also from the Camellia 2014) stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps) with the same embossing process as the flower.

The flowers were attached with Tacky Dots, some Bling on a Roll (Recollections ) was cut in various lengths and applied to the card, as well as a white satin bow.

This bling was found in the wedding aisle at one of the crafts stores I buy from and attached it to the center of the bow with hot glue.

2nd piece of painted card stock was added to the inside of the card with an ATG.
