Welcome back to another exciting edition of our weekly Watch Along Wednesday series! For today’s post, we’re taking it back to the swinging 60s and 70s with the Sara Signature Sew Retro range with this beautiful bouquet card, created by David Falcon. This is a collection that’s packed full of flower power and prettiness, so it’s perfect for adding a touch of fun into your stash.
In this video, David creates a gorgeous easel card with fantastic floral detailing and a beautiful paper bow attached to the giant bouquet. The finished project is absolutely stunning and would make a brilliant addition to any mantelpiece. While it looks a little complicated at a glance, David is here to show you that it’s actually very simple to achieve a similar look.
If this sounds like it’s right up your street, hit play on the video below!
While this project focuses on papercraft, the best thing about the Sara Signature Sew Retro collection is that it’s a fantastic hybrid of papercraft and needlecraft. In the same collection that brings you a paper pad, dies and stamps, you’ll also be able to pick up fabrics, threads, bagmaking accessories and the funkiest pair of scissors you’ll ever see.
The main focus of this card is the bouquet, which has been created with the Build-a-Bloom Die set. This set provides you with the dies needed to create four different flowers, complete with stems and central circles. They’re ideal for using separately for delicate embellishments or all together to create your very own garden in bloom.
