Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Happy for You Card

Good Morning! I wanted to use the pretty Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias photopolymer stamp set for another card before summer really got away. I think that you could get away with calling it a ‘mum’ and making a fall card, but I really love dahlias, so I stayed with a summery card. I also wanted to do play with a different technique, so I pulled out my stencils for the background. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by taping the damask stencil over a Basic White panel and using a blending brush to apply daffodil ink over the entire panel. Next, I embossed the panel with the Timeworn Text 3D embossing folder and adhered a panel of the Mint Macaron striped Hand Penned designer series paper to the side. I adhered the layered panel to a Mint Macaron mat and wrapped it twice with white baker’s twine and tied a bow. I adhered the panel to the front of a Daffodil Delight card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the large outline flower from the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Daffodil Delight on Basic White and stamped over it with the large solid flower using stamped off Daffodil Delight. I fussy cut the flower and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Mint Macaron ink on Basic White and cut it out with the smallest Encircled in Beauty die – isn’t this a pretty die! I adhered it to the card with glue dots, tucking a corner under the flower.

I stamped four outline leaf clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Garden Green ink on Basic White and stamped the solid leaf clusters over them using Mint Macaron ink. I fussy cut these and adhered them with glue dots, tucking the stems under the flower and arranging them so they did not cover the sentiment. I finished the card front with Bumblebee matte dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the large solid dahlia flower from the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias three times in Daffodil Delight ink on a Basic White panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Hand Penned striped Mint Macaron paper. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The flower from the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias stamp set is so pretty! And it’s one of the items that you can get for Free with a $100 purchase before shipping and taxes during Sale A Bration. And there’s only three and a half weeks left in Sale A Bration, so hurry!
