Two Tone Dahlia

Making the out of my Sale-a-bration stamp set! For this post I will share two tone Thanks cards, they could easily be Birthday or Thinking of You or Hello just by swapping out the sentiment!

I used my sponge daubers to create the two tone color look on the Large Dahlia flower. I started with my darker color on the inside and then added the lighter color to the outer rows of the flower. So these may not be true to life Dahlias but that is part of the magic of stamping. YOU can make it what you want! The colors I used for these two cards are Bermuda Bay with Gorgeous Grape and Merry Merlot with So Saffron! I have many more color combos I want to accomplish.

I added a Thanks sentiment using the Biggest Wishes Stamp set I added the lighter color with the Large Thanks and then the smaller thanks with the darker color. The sentiment turned out striking. I die cut the layers with the Stitched so Sweetly dies and added Dimensionals to give the card a little bit of height. Using a card base only is great but I really like height on my cards!

I finished with a bit of Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine on the Merry Merlot card and Black Baker’s Twine the Gorgeous Grape. I love that the twine colors coordinate with all of the paper!
