Wow...I can not believe this is August 21!!  It feels like the time is racing past me this summer.
Well, here are the last 2 installments of my first Club Create Card series...I did not realize what an undertaking this would be, but I hope you are enjoying these cards, and are able to use the techniques to create your own beautiful creations.

4.  Simply Beautiful Paper Flowers (purple and blue, and white daisy)
5.  Foam adhesive and tape runner
6.  Paper trimmer.

Step 1:  Score Grape card stock a 4 1/4" so that you have an A2 card measuring 5 1/2"x 4 1/4" when folded in half.
Step 2:  Trim yellow patterned paper to 5 14" x 4" and adhere to the front of the card.
Step 3:  Trim Blue and Purple Patterned paper to 5" x 3 3/4" and adhere to the top of the card.
Step 4: Adhere a Medium Sized purple and blue flower to the flower in the cent of the card - make sure the petals are off set of the pre-printed flower.
Step 5: Adhere the White Flower to the center of the blue and purple flower using a small foam square.

Step 3: Using your border punch, punch a border longways down 1 side of each piece of patterned paper.
Step 4:  Adhere the straight sides to your card, the decorative borders should face each other in the center of the card.  You can trim down your flat sides to allow more space between the borders if you would like.
Step 5: Gather your flowers - you will need 1 green, 1 orange, 1 purple, and 1 pink and white.
Step 6.  Layer all your flowers on top  of one another, except the green flower,  and adhere using Tape or Glue pen.
Step 7: Cut your green flower in quarters, giving you 4 pieces, and adhere to the bottom of your layered flowers.  Be sure they stick out to be seen - the should look almost like leaves.

2. Simply Beautiful Paper Ribbon
3.  Simply Beautiful Flowers
4.  Tape Runner
5.  Scissors
6.  Tag Maker

Step 1: Punch out tags using your Tag Maker.  Shown are 2 Mediterranean and 1 Grape.
Step 2:  Measure out 2 inches of your choice or Paper Ribbon and adhere to your tag as shown.
Step 3.  Adhere flower of choice as shown.  This project works best with the smaller flowers, but you can also use the larger flowers in the center of the tags.

Now you have some great tags to be used as gift tags, embellishments for cards, or journaling spots for your albums.  This is a great way to use up scrap paper, extra paper ribbon, or spare flowers.
