Gold & Vanilla Botanical Blooms Two Ways

Can't get the Botanical Builders die-cut and used much simpler than this... Very Vanilla flowers with gold foil centres...finished off with pearls in the centre... and gold foil leaves...

The cards are both made from the same 12.5cm card blank... the right hand just as a standard card blank... the left hand as a Simple Easel Card...
So (as some of you asked for directions) cut a piece of card 12.5 x 25cm... (5x10")

For the standard card blank...  score your LANDSCAPE panel at 12.5cm (5")

For the Simple Easel card... score your LANDSCAPE panel at 6.25cm (2 1/2") and 12.5cm (5") 
The square panel is just a 9cm (3 1/2") Square - finished off with simple paper piercing using the (very sadly retiring - but reduced!) Essentials Paper Piercing pack on the right - with the addition of Faux Stitching on the left (I used a crafty stash gold metallic Sharpie pen)

The paper is from the Botanical Gardens paper stack (12 cm or 4 3/4") Square. It is used also used on the inside of the standard card  - but with an extra Very Vanilla panel with the inside greeting and gold embossed leaves... sorry no photo taken... 

The gold embossed stamped leaves are from Grateful Bunch and again I have used the retiring (but also reduced) Sassy Salutations for my gold embossed wording
Simple, elegant and suitable for any occasion...
