Beautiful Bouquet, Circle of Flowers Technique, Thank You Card

I was so impressed with this card. It was the circle, how perfectly it was made. It's actually a technique, a fun and easy one!  Who would have thought? You can see that technique here. Tracy has a video so you won't have any questions about how it's made.  I would recommend doing some measuring to get the pieces exact before you cut your template. If it's off a little, it will matter.  But then again it's a handmade card so if it's off a little, it's okay.  Stamping the smaller flower by hand sort of balanced things out!

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Gorgeous Grape card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Highland Heather that was textured using the "Layered Leaves" embossing folder.

The top layers are as follows.  The Whisper White piece measures 2-13/16" square. I used the square framelit for this. You will need to use the framelit or you won't be able to make the template. Plus you want that square to fit inside the template.  I used the next size scalloped square for the Highland Heather layer.  And the back layer was cut 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" using Gorgeous Grape card stock. This layer was cut on the paper cutter.  I taped all three of those layers together and then it was affixed to the card front using Dimensionals.

It's an easy technique and I think it will allow me to make some more fun cards in the near future.  I am keeping my template inside my Stamperatus.  Give this a try, you will see how fun it is!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I love this card. But there is no link back to the video you refer to and no instructions for cutting a template. Can you please post them.
