Dahlia Flower Card

Happy Monday! I want to share a super cool technique that is featured on SCS's Technique Lover's Challenge today--the Dalhia Flower Fold. It's so fun and I really like the results! Using double sided pattern paper is the best choice, or stamp on both sides of cardstock (if you so choose.) Here's the directions:

I should have made a bigger card base since this flower ends up being so large! I tried to create more balance by stamping photo corners in black, cutting them out and popping them on dimensionals in the 4 corners. I also stamped the swirl-like effects in black, then embossed them in hologram highlights ep (SU!). The swirls and photo corner stamps are by Technique Tuesday's "Postcards From Paris" collection. The antique bronze brooch blossom and pink jewel brad are from Imaginisce. Thanks for visiting today! ~big hugs and happy stamping~
