Autumn is here

It really feels like autumn here in Norfolk although the weather is bright it is very chilly & feels quite autumnal.
So I thought I would make some cards using the Autumn Splendour set & the Autumn Meadows papers.

To make the flower 
Punch out your largest circle using 1 3/4" circle punch, this will form the base of your flower.

You will need 7 circles using the middle sized
1 3/8" circle punch.
The smallest 1"circle punch will form the centre of your flower, you could use the middle sized circle if you prefer.

I have inked all the edges of the circles both front and back using the
Sponge Daubers & Really Rust ink but for an alternative look you could distress them.
Fold both sides of each circle in to create a little posy shape. Glue the bottom section together.
When the flower is assembled stick the smallest circle in the middle & button with the hemp twine tied through the button.

Soft Suede card base 5" square, 4 Chocolate chip squares 4 3/4", 4 squares of Autumn meadow papers 
4 1/2" square. The large leaf is cut from the backing papers, the smaller leaf is stamped using Really Rust ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock & inked around the edges. The sentiment is from Occasional Greetings stamped in Really Rust onto the backing papers & punched out using the Oval punch & mounted onto Chocolate chip cardstock punched using the Scallop Oval punch.
