Autumn bouquet


Finding different cards for my class to make is interesting and when I was deciding what to choose this month I remembered I used to make this style of card several years ago. I have to bear in mind most of them aren't, nor do they aspire to be, cardmakers. They just enjoy the class.

The card is a chance for them to play with various punches and dies and arrange them into a bouquet. I cut and folded a doily then used various papers and card with punches and dies to create the flowers and leaves. I raised some of them with small foam pads and added pearls and enamel dots.  I also added a small bow, punched butterfly and a LOTV sentiment.
