I instantly thought of the Dahlia XL image for my card and I decided to use a retired die from SU to create my portion control. I cut out the die first and then stamped the image across it. By doing this the outer side edges of the flower were cut off, leaving the center as the main focus of the card. If I had chosen a smaller die I could take off even more of the outer petals but I really liked how this die looked with the dahlia so decided to keep it as is.
I colored the image in with some orange copics and then decided to use some orange and black papers for the background to carry the color scheme. I wanted a sentiment on the front but didn't want it to be too overwhelming so I stamped the "just for you" on a strip of white and then cut it to create a small banner.
Thanks for stopping by!
