The card I have to share with you today features the Dahlia Days Bundle which includes the Dahlia Days stamp set and the Detailed Dahlia Dies (you save 10% when you purchase a bundle). This card may look like it’s difficult to make, but it really isn’t!
I started with a base of Just Jade cardstock. Then I used my Stitched Rectangles Dies to make a frame out of Abstract Beauty 4″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. I placed two of the dies on my Designer Series Paper and then ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I used the #1 & #3 dies (see photo below).
Next, I used the largest die in the Detailed Dahlia Dies and cut a piece of Basic White cardstock (see the measurements I used below the Supply List). I used the Take Your Pick Die Brush to get all the small pieces in this detailed die released (this brush twists into the Take Your Pick tool). You place your die cut piece on one of the pieces of foam that it comes with and then brush over the detailed die piece. I place the foam in a box so that all the pieces stay inside the box and not all over my work area.
I added Multipurpose Glue to the back of the Abstract Beauty frame (be careful not to add too much glue or you’ll see some warping) and then placed the Basic White Detailed Die piece on top of it. It doesn’t fit perfectly but it’s enough to adhere it. I trimmed all the pieces that were hanging off the edge. To adhere the frame to the card base, I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals around the perimeter of the frame but you could use small amounts of Multipurpose Glue or Mini Glue Dots. I found that the inside of the frame wasn’t laying flat but once I added the flowers and sentiment, I really didn’t notice.
I stamped the flowers in Balmy Blue ink and the leaves in Just Jade ink using the stamp set, Dahlia Days and then cut them out with the Detailed Dahlia Dies. I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the leaves to the flowers and a Stampin’ Dimensional between the two flowers, then added Stampin’ Dimensinals all over the back and adhered it to the front. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink and cut it out using the Seasonal Labels Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. To complete the card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside and added two Classic Matte Dots in white to the middle of each flower.
