Hello everyone. Thankyou for joining with me for this tutorial showcasing the beautiful colours of the Bohemian Bouquet collection designed by Denise Boddey.
In previous posts I have highlighted the Blue and Yellow Butterfly embellishments teamed with the Decoupage sheets and for this project I have focussed on the pinks from the Decoupage sheets to create the lovely 3D blooms.
This is a large card and is assembled in 3 simple stages. The pictorial breaks down the sections. You could even use the same design on a scrapbook page and substitute the sentiment with a photo!




1. Creating your base
I have selected a portion from the 12x12 patterned papers as the background. This will give a subtle hint of the design in the background.

Create a card base from the Lollypop, (pink), 20.3cm high x 30cm wide. Score and fold.
Cut a mat from the Lush, (green), 19.1cm high x 13.7cm wide.
Cut a highlight mat from the Snow White,18.1cm high x 12.9cm wide.
Cut your patterned piece as pictured above, 17.7cm high x 12.5cm wide.
Ink the edges to coordinate.

Layer as pictured.

2. Arranging the Blooms
Pop the layered pieces from the decoupage sheet. Trim around the edges allowing a small white border on each piece.

Create the main flower with 3d between each layer.

I have done a mock layout of where each section will lay on the card.

Cut the love sentiment from the patterned papers. Ink in a coordinating colour. Cut a Lush green mat giving you a 2mm border around the sentiment, then layer onto a white highlight mat giving you a 1.5mm border. Combine the 3 layers.

Lay an edge of pink lace around the outer edge as pictured, creating a soft frame.
Tuck the decoupage foliage into the top corner as pictured, this will create balance with the layout.

3. Assemble
The sentiment will be the first placement on the card and the foliage can then be arranged around it.
