Forever Card

I named this one "Forever Card" because it took me FOREVER to get the cuts done and assembled!  It was seen on Pinterest and I tracked it back to Claire Creates Cards.  Had I read all of her description, I'd have saved myself a lot of time and effort.  She has a link to a video for making the star burst behind the flowers which is super simple.  I used a quilt block clip art image, traced and cut it with Make The Cut.  Each of the rays had to be numbered so they'd fit back together properly. 

Would you believe this card, including the base, has 22 pieces?   Since there are six different papers in the star burst pieces, I completed six of these.

The top border is from the Elegant Edges cartridge and was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I used a Flower Shop stamp and Pansy Punch for the large flowers.  The centers were done with a Boho Blossom punch and secured with brads.

I really love this Forever card.

I watched the video and it seems like it wouldn't take... Forever :)
I may try to make one of these later in pink. I already have a mess in my floor so may as well try another.
