This card I started with a 5 1/2"x5 1/2" folded cardbase which I cut a 5"x5" piece of patterned cardstock, inked the edges and adhered to the cardbase. 

Even though the card looks hard to put together it really isn't.  I cut the following pieces of patterned cardstocks 3 1/4"x5", 2 3/4"x5" and 2 1/4"x5" and used a decorative punch (5" side) on each piece and then measured 2 1/2" of the punched edge (the center) and cut with in a 1/2" of each piece of cardstock. I then "curled" the cut edges around a pencil and then adhered each piece on top of each other to create a pocket.

I used the Doily diecut to cut a doily from off white piece of cardstock, ink edges and then glued to cardbase and inside the "pocket".

 I cut the big leaves from the Holiday Greenery diecut on off white cardstock. I then inked with a variety of peach, tan, brown, yellow and green chalk ink. I blended the colors together and then wadded and crinkled the leaves up and then shaped the ends with my stylus. I folded down the middle and inked the center with brown ink.

The smaller leaves also come from the Holiday Greenery diecut too. I shaped those with the stylus and then I adhered all the leaves and paper flowers around the "pocket" of the card along with twine which I made a bow out of. I finished off the with a sentiment from Canvas Corp's Grateful Stamp Set and two little twigs from a tree.
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
