Frugal Crafting - Greetings Card - Part 2

So here's the second part to this post.  Part 1 is here if you missed it and it's where I showed you a card made using two colours of card, scissors, glue.  I also showed you how to make two different flowers.  The card below takes that one step further and shows you how to use edging punches and flower cut outs to get lots of dimension and layers.  Although I've used punches and cut outs here,  I've deliberately used simple flower shapes that you could draw and cut out.  You can rip the card across the bottom if you don't have an edge punch.  The point is, if you don't have exactly the same crafting gizmos, it doesn't matter.  Just take the basic template and adapt to suit what you have. 

For example - I've got a job lot of these flat backed pearl beads but you could use a button or a bead as a centre piece. 

The flowers look like aged leather but it's just cardboard.

                                          And here's the video to show you how....
