Regarding Dahlias Favor

Dahlias FavorWOW…I can’t believe it!  We are at the end of Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions 2014!  It always seems to go by sooooo quickly and WOW…there were just so many FABULOUS card ideas!

On Saturdays each of the design team creates a small 3D or favor to go along with the set they used that week for their card set.  Can you guess what set I use?  Yep…Regarding Dahlias and I just LOVE this set!  For my 3D I made a little seed packet holder.

Here’s the details…

  • Gumball Green – start with piece approximately 6 x 7 1/2.  Fold up 2 1/2″ flap.  Lay the cardstock on the Oval Accents Die so that the fold is along the bottom…that will help hold the packets in.  Cut out with the die.
  • Island Indigo – 1 1/4 x 6.  Lay in the same place as the fold was and cut.  Run through the Chevron Embossing Folder.
  • Whisper White – 5 x 3/4.  Punch with Scallop Edge Punch, a add behind the Island Indigo piece and then add to Gumball Green base.  Tape sides (where the round bump is) to form the pocket.
  • Stamp Dahlia on the Green/Blue flower dsp using Versamark, black emboss, cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Punch out Whisper White Label Bracket punch.  Punch out a silver glimmer Modern Label punch, split in the middle and add to each side.  Stamp greeting using Versamark on Pistachio Pudding, black emboss, punch with 1 3/8″ circle punch, add using dimensionals.  Add piece to favor front using dimensionals.
  • Add Island Indigo Candy dots to the Silver Glimmer ends.
  • Fold 2 seed packets so they fit nicely in the favor, add to pocket and you are good to go!
