Blog Hop Night!

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

ETA: The blog hop was last night! I've been rushing around for the last hour and a half to get this card done and posted AND IT WAS LAST NIGHT!!! ARGGGG....

If you read my post earlier today, I didn't mention that tonight is PaperTrey Ink's blog hop. That's because I totally forgot! I had to wait until the kids went to bed, but I did manage to pull this off. The challenge this month was to build your own floral embellishment for a card. The card I made uses a technique called the Dahlia Fold. I've made this flower only once before. You can find the tutorial I used here.

This card uses Kiwi Kiss Patterned Paper. One side is polka dots and the other is a floral print. The flower is anchored with a white brad. The base of the card is Stamper's Select White with Old Olive sponged on the edges. I used a square of Riding Hood Red behind the flower. The tag and ribbon are Kiwi Kiss and stamped sentiment is from PTI's Mixed Messages.

Her is a close up the Dahlia Fold Flower. Thanks for stopping by tonight! Enjoy the hop!
Happy Thanksgiving!
Dana

Very pretty, I haven't tried to attempt one of these yet. The paper you chose looks great as a flower.
