I made this card to match the gift bag featured on page 64 of the Stampin’ Up!© Idea Book and Catalog. There is a FREE video on how to make the Gift Bag – just join my mailing list to receive the FREE videos.
With Whisper White cardstock #100730, I cut the shape with the Window Frames Collection #129021. Once I cut the labels shape, I then trimmed both sides straight removing the outside rounded portions of the die.
Instead of stamping the large dahlia with a single color, I used Sponge Daubers #102892 to create a multiple-color look to on the large flower. In the middle of the image, I used Tangerine Tango Classic Ink #126946 and used another Sponge Dauber to cover the outside of the flower with Raspberry Ripple Classic Ink #126859. There was some overlapping of the colors to help blend the image into one. I also used Gumball Green Classic Ink #126861 to Sponge Dauber the stem of the flower. The flower turned out beautiful!
The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped with Basic Black Classic Ink #126980 and the project was all pulled together with a strip of 3/8″ Stitched Satin Rabsberry Ripple Ribbon #126845.
I think this card turned out great! What other color combinations do you think would look good? I would love to hear your ideas!
