Dahlia Fold Buds in Bloom

This folding technique is super cute. I'm in a dahlia fold swap and this is the card I made for the swap. I didn't want to make a complete "dahlia" so I went with stems instead. Next time though...I'll use lighter weight CS because it was so much harder to fold and I don't really enjoy those "unsightly" crinkles in the folds. Next time! The butterfly is punched and was filled in with Diamond Stickles. I love Zindorf's "white shading" so much, I had to do it too on the "vines"...lol.

CS: RRed, WWhite, WWasabi, & Kraft - DP from Slab
Ink: OOlive
Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Embellishments: Rub-on's by Marcella by K
Others: SU 1 3/8 circle punch, ticket corner punch, Stickles, butterfly punch, & Signo white gel pen

Totally cool! I have wasted lots of paper trying that fold and I think I'll just look at other people's cool stuff, like yours!

Gabby, you did a great job! I just can't get these to fold right. I'd rather just enjoy yours than try to make one.

Your card is fabulous!
