Hawthorn Punch Card

Here's an all-occasion card idea with an autumn color palette. It's one I made while a member of the CustomQuilling design team. Our challenge was to create a project for the monthly newsletter using the Punch Bunch hawthorn leaf punch.To make the flower, buds, and leaves, you'll just need the one punch. I used pearlized paper sheets and quilling strips in deep green, champagne, and pale gold... I'm a fan of the rich look of pearl paper. Admittedly it does take a bit more patience to work with than regular paper because of its slick finish, so it helps to use a quick-drying glue.

Instructions for the card are available as a PDF download via the CQ site. Just click on Patterns after entering the store.

I love the autumn colors you used. This is absolutely gorgeous. I think you're convincing me that in my next life (or as soon as I get more time in this one) I need to try this.
