Another Dahlia Fold

Here is one last fold card that I had done awhile ago, but forgot to show you all. This Dahlia Fold is done using Jersey Shore Designer Paper. If its not your favorite, any paper will do (But come on isn't this flower cute!). The stamp set used is So Happy, and yes this is another that will be retiring, so get it before Aug 10th so you don't have to say farewell. The Base of the card is Brilliant Blue. Eight circles were punched out of the Jersey Shore paper to kreate the Dahlia. For directions on how to fold your circles to kreate your dahlia flower, click the link to the right and email me. I used a dauber to ink up a small chipboard flower in Pumpkin Pie. Then I adhered the tiny green Microbeads using Crystal Effects. TIP: Make sure this little gem is set aside to dry a bit before placing on your Dahlia with a Mini Glue dot. One more piece from the Jersey Shore paper is showcased across the center of my card. The paisleys and sentiment from the So Happy set were inked out and stamped in Brilliant Blue. Beside the Dahlia flower taking a bit to assemble, this was a pretty simple card to kreate. Any questions, I'm here to help! Hope you like it!

For now, go kreate

Welcome to the Pretty Pals!

Love your dahlia fold. I tried this once and got too frustrated.

This is just beautiful. I tried to make the dahlia fold in the past and it was a disaster. You have inspired me to "get back on the horse."

Congratulations on your SU promotion and we look forward to having you chat with us on the Pretty Pals blog.
