Check out this month's new set....Build-A-Flower: Dahlia...


I have 3 cards to share with you today.

Here is my first card...

Altenew BAF Dahlia

To create this card, I used Kind Confetti in the background with a sentiment to match.  I stamped and die cut the Dahlia.  Super easy to line up!  I added a couple leaves and attached it to the card front.

 I made one more card for the hop....and then ended up using all the parts and made another card.  :)

Altenew BAF Dahlia

The first card uses the negative of the Gradient Stripes Cover Die.  I stamped the dahlia's randomly on a piece of white card stock. I used 2 of the color layered images but instead of lining them up, I stamped them randomly too.  So the colors don't line up but the shapes add in a different look.  I popped that up on the card base and then added in the hello die in black card stock.

I used the outside frame for this next card...

I added it to a white card base and then stamped a simple sentiment along the bottom of the card.  And done!  :)
