This is for SC172 and TLC153. I know almost everyone had tried the Dahlia fold before, but this was my first one - prompted by the gorgeous papers in our new catty.
This entire card was a first for me really, first Dahlia fold, first time using all three of the stamp sets, first time using River Rock, first time using Taffeta ribbon....yup, I'm in New Catty heaven!
I mounted my Dahlia on a layer of Moss, then Artichoke - mainly cos it was the only way I could get it to lay even! I love how it looks though, and cutting around it was pretty easy.
The frame was stamped on the vanilla layer, the sentiment stamped inside (Love the SAMJ!) then a mask applied before French Flair was stamped over the entire panel. I did some light sponging around the frame while the mask was still in place.
I dotted the corner punch to mimic the dots on the frame. All layers are sponged with River Rock (I love what this does to Mellow Moss!)
