Layered Flowers with Many Colors and Patterns

With a variety of patterned papers, dies, and punches, I made a batch of ten layered flowers, each a bit different from the others.  With a banner of gingham paper, the flower makes a colorful note card for one of our troops, deployed overseas, to write home on.

Card details:
  •  Card stock for the card bases is Papertrey Ink aqua mist (top card), lemon tart (yellow) (middle card, below), and rustic cream (bottom card).  
  • Dies and punches are EK Success scalloped circle, plain circle, and small flower, and Papertrey Ink notched flowers, flower fusion #2, flower fusion #3, and chevron border (for the end of the banner), and Spellbinders Nestabilities big scalloped circles LG.  I also used a 1/4" hole punch for the flower centers.
  • The "leaves" are small triangles of Papertrey Ink ripe avocado (green) and simply chartreuse pattern pack (gingham).
  • The patterned papers for the flower layers include Papertrey Ink Dearest Jane (brown text on cream) and pattern packs in aqua mist polka dot, enchanted evening (dark blue) damask, pure poppy (red) bitty dot, melon berry (light orange) stripe, and raspberry fizz (bright pink) tea leaves.  To find them, type pattern pack in the Papertrey Ink store's search bar.  
  • The sentiment "Love you, miss you" is computer-printed in green ink with Chalkduster font. 
Created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (175)
