Triple Dahlias

Today starts National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child. If you want to learn more about it way to help children go to
Here is a fun card that could be used for many different occasions. How you use it will depend on what you put on the inside. A birthday or get well greeting or your own personal note would work just fine! Have fun stamping!
Materials needed:
Regarding Dahlias stamp set (#130327)
Crushed Curry card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
Summer Smooches patterned paper (#125409) 4 x 5 1/4"
Whisper White card stock
More Mustard ink
Pumpkin Pie ink
Really Rust ink
1/2" Grosgrain Striped Ribbon Pumpkin Pie (#110715)
1 3/8" Circle punch (#119860)
3/16" Corner punch (#119871)
Stampin" Dimensionals (#104430)

1. Stamp the dahlia stamp on white card stock 3 times, once in Pumpkin Pie ink, once in More Mustard ink, and once in Really Rust ink. Cut out each flower image with your scissors.
2. Stamp the "hello, you" greeting in Pumpkin Pie ink on white card stock. Punch out with the 1 3/8" circle punch.
3. Cut a 7" piece of the Pumpkin Pie striped ribbon. Tie a knot in the center. Put adhesive on the back and press 1/2" from the bottom of the patterned paper. Wrap the ends around to the back.
4. Use the corner punch to round the corners of the patterned paper. Adhere the patterned paper to the Crushed Curry card stock centering it so that you have a 1/8" border all the way around.
5. Adhere the Really Rust dahlia image to the patterned paper on the right side. Place 4-5 Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of each of the other 2 dahlia images. Peel the paper off the dimensionals and press onto the Pumpkin Pie image on top of the Really Rust image. You might want to off set the images about 1/8". Repeat with the More Mustard image on top of the Pumpkin Pie image. This will give you the darkest color on the bottom and the lightest color on the top. The idea is to give it a more dimensional look.
6. Adhere the circle greeting to the top left side of the patterned paper.
7. Adhere the card front to a card base and complete by adding your greeting or note to the inside.
