Here is my Dahlia card for todays Try a new Technique challenge to make a dahlia per the instructions seen here:
What fun this was! I made a 5.5 x 5.5 card to accomodate the mega scallop punch circles - I made the flower out of Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl DP and I made 2 extra 'leaf petals' out of SU River Rock DP.
I punched some flowers out of the Dutch Girl to put on the center circle and I twisted some red wire around a pencil to curl it and slipped on some silver beads for some interest in the open corners.
I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on the bottom and then placed Bashful Blue CS behind it.
These Dahlias really make a stunning card!
Thanks for hosting the challenge today Dannie!
