Dahlia Fold Mother's Day Card

Here's another Stamp Club project for this month. The Orchid Opulence card stock will be retiring June 30 but I am so happy to have this current In-Color, Rich Razzleberry, sticking around in the new color collections! I made the dahlia fold with Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper, and topped it off with a half pearl from the Pretties Kit.

Here are the directions to make the dahlia:

1. Punch 9 circles of Designer Series Paper using any size circle punch.
2. Vertically and horizontally fold the circles in half creating 4 quadrants; however, don’t fold all the way up on one fold as this will be visible as the top center of your flower. Unfold the circle.

3. Fold up the bottom right and left corners. Use your previous fold lines as a guide.

4. Flip your piece over and fold the right and left edges to the center.

5. Repeat for each circle. You will need 8 folded circles to make a full dahlia.

6. The ninth circle serves as your dahlia’s base. Simply fold this circle into quadrants as a guide and adhere the eight pieces with the tips meeting in the center to create a beautiful dahlia.

Supplies:  Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry cardstock, Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper, Rich Razzleberry ink, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder, Eyelet border punch, Pretties Kit
