Dahlia Layouts and Cards
There is always room for you to infuse your own creativity into our pre-planned pages, especially this month with a beautiful 8.5x11 White raised print. You get to add the colors of your choice!
DAHLIA DELUXE KIT
LAYOUTS 1 & 2
The Felt Flower Buttons are so sweet when tied with jute fiber. Pierce two holes into the paper and use a tapestry needle to bring the fiber through the button and paper.
LAYOUTS 3 & 4
If you happen to have a 1.5" circle punch or die on hand, punch out the White circular cutaparts and layer onto the corrugated Round Kraft Tags.
LAYOUTS 5 & 6
The White cutapart features a set of three butterflies printed in black. Use your favorite art medium to color the butterflies, trim them from the cutapart, and attach them to Layout 5 & 6. (Use a black gel pen to add the antennae.)
To get double duty from the punched circles on the White cutapart, cut them in half and tuck the straight edge behind a mat.
LAYOUTS 7 & 8
Enjoy playing with a full roll of beautiful Butterfly Washi Tape!
LAYOUTS 9 & 10
The jewels on the .5x12" Black border strip are White Jewel Dazzles. Identify the center of the strip with a CS Grid Ruler, and make a mark every 3/4". Alternate applying medium and large jewels to the marked spots. I find it helpful to pick up and apply the jewel with the tip of a craft knife.
LAYOUTS 11 & 12
I've got two favorites here: the Butterfly Washi Tape and a gorgeous multi-colored rayon fiber. Combine a strip of both to create a horizontal and vertical border for Layouts 11 & 12.
LAYOUTS 13 & 14
Spray the 8.5x11 White Raised Print with a coordinating colored mist of your choice. Allow the paper to dry and rub away any excess spray from the raised areas. Trim the three flowers from the paper with a craft knife or scissors, and adhere the flowers to the layout, aligning the straight edges of the flowers with the edges of the layout.
DAHLIA GREETINGS TO GO
Every single card in this set has a corresponding inside greeting. Be sure to check your free instruction download for details on the inner artwork for each card.
The silk leaves make an elegant, one-dimensional addition to the cards. Use a wire cutter or old serrated scissors to remove the wire stems, if needed.
Cut a slit along the top and bottom edges of the printed square to accommodate a criss-cross of purple checked ribbon. How sweet is that!
Have fun creating beautiful things with Dahlia!
