Dahlia

Try a New Technique #153
The sun is up today which is a good thing. All I need is a little motivation to start doing some cleaning around the house, until I saw this technique today -making a dahlia fold card. Here is the website for the instructions on how to make it. There is very little stamping here. I did use the Floral for the background stamped in Soft Sky ink. I used two layers of the Nesties and punched holes on the scallops. You need 8 circles to make this flower(the smaller the circle, the harder it is to fold). I used the 13/8 " circle punch for this card, used the Bali Breeze DSP. I alternated the colors, just get some variety but you can keep them the same design. For the center I used the Sweet Celebrations set which I am beginning to enjoy using. I used the pretties for the center and a rhinestone brad.
RECIPE:
Stamps: Floral BG, Sweet Celebrations
Paper: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, DSP Bali Breeze
Ink: White Craft, Soft Sky
Accessories: Rhinestone brad, Pretties, DS Ribbon, Silver brads
Tools: Phot Corner Punch, 1/16 Punch, 13/8 Punch
