Fall themed floral card using Susan’s Autumn Flora Collection

Hi guys, I love making paper flowers. Susan’s Autumn Flora collection from Spellbinders, designed by Susan Tierney-Cockburn has dies to make some gorgeous flowers. You must check these out. The Spellbinders blog has some uber talented crafters, sharing several cards made using these flowers. Most of these cards involve not only die cutting but also adding color on these die cuts. For my card today I decided to take a bit more simplified approach. And I think they look great this way too. I also simplified the die cutting – I completely skipped the tiny die cuts for flower centers and went with something totally different {and much quicker :-) }.

Ok, enough talks, let’s check out the card followed by key ingredients and steps.

Key Ingredients:

  1. Coreopsis Etched Dies from Susan’s Autumn Flora
  2. Gaillardia Etched Dies from Susan’s Autumn Flora
  3. Chunky Glitter (I am linking to couple options for this below)

Steps:

  1. Die cut flowers and leaves.
    1. I used several papers from older Spellbinders card kits to die cut these. I did leaves in two different green colors. I did not die cut the tiniest pieces.
  2. Assemble the main flowers.
    1. Use 2 layers each for the yellow flowers and 3 layers for the dark red one.
    2. Create some smaller flowers. Instead of using the smaller die cuts to make those into flower centers, I assembled two each of these to create smaller flowers in matching colors.
  3. Create the card front.
    1. Assemble flowers and leaves in an arrangement on the card front. I used Tim Holtz Woodgrain cardstock as my card front, this gives amazing texture and adds interest to the card.
    2. To finish off the arrangement, make glittery centers on the flowers. I added a blob of Simon Says Stamp Craft Tacky glue to the flower centers and poured chunky glitter on top and tapped off excess.

Yes, simple and quick. Hope you like it :-)
