To make the card

  • Begin with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Garden Green cardstock, score and fold at 4 1/4″ to form your card base.
  • Open your card up and sandwich the front side in the Pretty Flowers die and run through your Stampin’ Cut  emboss machine.

  • Layer and adhere your stamped piece to a 1 3/4″ x 4″ piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using Stampin’ SEAL.
  • Adhere the layered piece to the left side of the card, being sure to leave a small border, using Stampin’ SEAL.

  • Stamp the large dahlia on a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock using Calypso Coral ink.

Make a mask

  • Make a mask of the large Dahlia. To make a mask, stamp the image on a post it note, being sure that a portion of the image is stamped where the sticky part is underneath, and cut out with your Paper Snips.
  • Place the mask over the stamped dahlia and stamp some leaves (covering the dahlia slightly) using Garden Green ink.

  • Remove your mask, adhere the piece to a 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, and attach to the center of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • Stamp your sentiment on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Garden Green ink.
  • Punch the sentiment and a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock out using the Double Oval Punch.
  • Layer and adhere the ovals together and attach to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. (hint- since it overlaps the middle piece, place dimensionals under the right side and use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Stampin’ SEAL under the left side.)
  • Attach three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels as shown.
