A Little Something For You Dahlia Card for Mom (#38/52) {09.22.2017}

Hi! Today's card is another attempt at using up some patterned paper ... I LOVE patterned paper but don't really know how to use it. I was inspired by some YouTube videos on "one sheet wonders" where you cut up a sheet of patterned paper and use it to make multiple cards. I was inspired by a 6x6 one sheet wonder. This is one of the cards I made, and this one is for my Momma!

I stamped out Sparkle N Sprinkle's Dahlia stamp set with Versafine ink, and sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set it. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I fussy cut the dahlia and matching leaves, and layered them over a white cardstock panel cut into an oval using the Tonic Die Layering Basics Die Set Mixed Edge Oval die. I die cut a black scalloped mat, using the next size up of the oval edge die. 

And, a sweet little sentiment stamped at the bottom of the oval. I stamped out Lawn Fawn's Tiny Tag Sayings sentiment. There are several sweet sayings, and I chose this one. It seemed just perfect :)

I am feeling more comfortable with patterned paper, and like how this paper all layered up and the beautiful dahlia image is just amazing!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
