i am addicted to this new Stampendous Jumbo Dahlia stamp. so i made this set for the Card Set Challenge over on the Moxie Fab blog. this also qualifies for the PPA89 challenge, Cards with Flowers.
the box is from these instructions from Splitcoaststampers. i stamped the flowers on the cardstock before i scored it for folding, so that the flower would be wrapped around the edges. i love the look of the corner.
i also stamped it on SU groovy guava paper with Versamark and clear embossed it. then used my aquapen to darken the petals with SU groovy guava and really rust inks.
i made the tag on top with PTI's Fillable Frames & buttons with twine. i stamped off the center of the dahlia stamp and then stamped it again on the die cut. i wanted it to be lighter in the center so that i could stamp the sentiment. then realized that all of the cards and box lid were on PTI vintage cream paper, and i did the tag with white paper. so i darkened the edges with PTI's tea dye. i think the sentiment stands out even more that way.
