STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut all die cuts using Cricut Craft Room , using cardstock in colors indicated.
Cut 1- 4 inch x 5 1/4 inch background card stock
Cut 2nd piece of card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 .
Cut 1 cardstock 12 x 5 3/4 then score in center and fold in half .
Cut 5 - 1/8 inch grey cardstock for wreath ribbons.Cut 1 - 1 inch by 4 inch cardstock for sentiment ribbon.
Sponge orange or red ink on sunflower layers from center outward.
Sponge white randomly on 4 x 5 1/4 inch card.
Sponge green , orange and red on leaves outer edges inward. Draw leaf veins on leaves with brown colored marker or pencil. Detail pinecones with black marker. Stamp and emboss cardstock strip cut in step 1 with sentiment then heat emboss with embossing powder
Wreath assembly--"Bash" Joys of the Season wreath2 by cutting off all berries leaving the "stems" Then cut all extending curves to form branches. Lay one cut wreath add 1 drop tacky glue then off center another wreath layer on top to the right of first layer, add a drop of tacky glue to this layer and add another wreath layer offset to the left , add another drop and another layer off set to the top and finally another drop of glue and layer offset to the bottom. allow glue to dry completely. Randomly bend branches . with tacky glue add pine cone corners to top right and bottom of wreath. When dry carefully loosely wrap grey 1/8 strips around wreath weaving in between branches resembling ribbon then secure ends with tacky glue in back of wreath. Allow to dry
Assemble Sunflowers- I made 4 sizes of sunflowers but only used the 3 smaller ones. Using the same size petals for each sunflower glue the petals together with the sponged side up on the 2 largest. On the very smallest petals glue only 2 together twice sponged side up. With these 2 sets glue together so that you have sponged sides on both sides of the flower. Glue brown centers to the center of the sunflower by the center tab. Allow to dry then wrap the centers and then glue the end to itself. I found this to be the easiest way to attach the centers. You can then light lift and spread glue to hold the whole piece down. Pinch and roll the petals until the look appeals to you . On the smallest sunflower push all the petals towards the center so it looks like a "blooming bud". Attach the 3 sunflowers as shown on the wreath.
Cut remaining 1/8 strips into small pieces. Make loops and insert and glue in between sunflowers. Use 2 more !/8 strips for the hanging ribbon. Twist and curl to desired shape then attach to wreath in between sunflowers. Cut off the pine cones from the Joys of the Season branch then glue Home Decor branch2 on top. Glue this assembly onto wreath behind the sunflowers .
Emboss the 4 x5 1/4 inked cardstock using the Cuttlebug A2 Distressed Stripes folder. Attach finished wreath to card. Attach leaves randomly piled to bottom right corner. Attach this card to the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cardstock. Cut ends of sentiment stamped cardstock to resemble ribbon. Glue to top right hand corner. Attach completed piece to folded cardstock
