I mentioned yesterday that once I start making Dahlia Fold cards, I can’t stop so I have one more to share with you. Today’s card is actually the same paper I used yesterday but I folded it the opposite way for a completely different look (you can see yesterday’s card here).
If you’d like to give the Dahlia Fold technique a try, I show you how to create the flower, step by step in this video. I’m working on a pictorial tutorial that I had hoped to have ready today but it will be ready later this week.
The base of the card is Night of Navy cardstock (all the supplies I used are in the Supply List below). I used the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder and the Big Shot to create the beautiful texture on the Whisper White cardstock. Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper (it can be found in the the Occasions Catalog) was used to create the flower.
I used a 1-3/4″ Circle Punch to cut 8 circles out of the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper and then folded each circle into fourths. After four more folds, the first petal is done! When I first starting making these flowers, I found that practicing on a larger circle than I was going to use on my card, made it much easier to learn how to fold each piece. If you have our Layering Circles Framelits, cut out the largest circle and try making the folds that way first. Again, here’s the video if you’d like to try making one of these flowers.
The sentiment is from the stamp set Vibrant Vases and was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Call Me Clover ink. I cut it out using the Layering Ovals Framelits and the Call Me Clover piece underneath it also was cut using these dies.
- Night of Navy cardstock: 11″ x 4-1/4″ Score at 5-1/2″ and fold in half
- Whisper White cardstock: 5-1/4″ x 4″ scrap for sentiment 1 circle cut using 2″ Circle Punch
- Call Me Clover cardstock: scrap for under sentiment
- Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper: 8 circles cut using a 1-3/4″ Circle Punch
