You Inspire Me - Delicate Dahlias - #FMS504

Hello again! Today's card is one I have entered into the Freshly Made Sketches #FMS504 Sketch Challenge this week. I love clean and simple designs but I always have trouble pulling it back to stop adding more and more decorative elements. I think I managed to fill the brief for the sketch and also keep to a relatively clean and simple card. 

Now I will admit this card was originally a full sized 'slimline' card but a stray droplet of water ended my plans for that after I had stamped the images and ruined one side of my stamped card. But what do you do as a crafter... you often try to make it work. I ended up making a mini slimline card and to be honest I like it more than my planned full size card.

For this card I used the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set. This free Sale-a-bration set is available if you spend over AUD$180 in the Australian Stampin' Up!® store. Don't forget Sale-a-bration is finishing on the 30th September so you only have a few more days to get this set.


- Use a piece of Smoky Slate card, cut in half and fold. Use a piece of Basic White card and stamp the Delicate Dahlias image over it using Fresh Freesia ink. Add some dots to the background to add visual interest using a Fresh Freesia Stampin' Write Marker. Attach a strip of black cardstock and a strip of scored Basic Gray card using Liquid Glue to attach it to the stamped white card.  Attach this to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

- Stamp a sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set onto Basic Black card with Versamark Ink and heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Attach the sentiment to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Cut a piece of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon into half lengthwise and tie two bows from the two half strips. Attach the bows to the front to the card near the sentiment using Mini Glue Dots. Add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels that have been coloured with a Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends (dark).
