Dahlias Congratulations

There are many things that we can send "congratulations" for. This one will go to a former student who is getting married in about a month. Her shower is this Saturday so I made this to go with her gift.
Materials needed:
Very Vanilla card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2," 3 3/4 x 4" and some extra for stamping on
Coastal Cabana card stock 4 x 5 1/4"
Regarding Dahlias stamp set (#130327)
Perfect Punches stamp set (#120516)
Pretty Print embossing folder (#132175)

Glue dots (#103683)

1. Cut the card stock to the dimensions listed above.
2. Place the smallest of the Very Vanilla card stock  in the Pretty Print embossing folder and run it through your Big Shot machine.
3. Layer the 3 card stock pieces and adhere together. Each one will have a 1/8" border around it.
4. Stamp the congratulations greeting from Perfect Punches on Very Vanilla card stock with Coastal Cabana ink. Use the Modern Label punch to punch it out. Adhere it to the top left side of the card.
5. Stamp the dahlia stamp on Very Vanilla card stock with Coastal Cabana ink. Cut it out close to the petal edges. Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back and place it on the right side of the card.
