A CASual Red, White and Blue Dahlia

This is my second post today.

I have been wanting to play along with the Technique Tuesday Dahlia Fold challenge all month so since we are getting down to the last few days - I had to try something.  Technique Tuesday has a nice video tutorial on this technique.  They also later posted a slight variation that makes gorgeous flower buds - find it here.

I also had a pad of paper out full of reds and blues so also decided to play along with the CASual Friday red, white and blue challenge.

A Very Happy Birthday

Is there nothing you can't do beautifully, Kims? That answer would be "no."

Leslie Miller said...

What a beautiful dahlia you made! And I love how you fit it to the red, white and blue challenge, as well. You make wonderful CAS cards, something I struggle with but want to do better. I appreciate that you took the time to comment on my CAS(E) this Sketch #29 challenge card.

This is so pretty! I really like doing this fold. It's been a while since I've made a card using this technique, but you have definitely inspired me to try again.

Fab layout - the fact the flower is off the page makes it visually very different. Thank you so much for joining us at TTTC for the dahlia fold challenge! We really appreciate the fact that you have taken the time to 'play' along with us and hope to see you again Karen P Technique Time Tuesday Crew http://stampinginpink.blogspot.com/
