Definitely Dahlia


Happy Monday everyone!  Do you LOVE the Definitely Dahlia background stamp?  I know that I do!  It was one of my ‘must have’ stamps on my first order and have had such a good time using it.

Okay…a little confession here (they say it is good for the heart)…this is Control Freak swap card.  Now that is NOT the confession part.  The confession part is I sort of lost track of time and realized I needed to get a card done RIGHT AWAY to get it mailed on time (this was the beginning of July).  Since I needed something fast, I decided to design my card around the Definitely Dahlia stamp so it would go together quickly.  Even though it was a ‘quick’ card…I think it turned out cool!

Here’s the details…

  • Basic Black – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 5, add to card base on an angle.
  • Kraft – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp Dahlia using Veramark and white emboss.  Rub Crumb Cake in over image.
  • Timeless Elegance dsp – 5/8 x 3 1/2, cut into a banner and add to card front.
  • Very Vanilla – 5/8 x 3 1/2, stamp greeting using Memento Black, cut into a banner and add to card front
  • Punch out little flower (Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack) – Basic Black and Kraft, add to card front
  • Add Basic Pearl to center of each flower to finish it off.
