Dahlia card

Well this is my first attempt at a Dahlia card. I saw cards using this technique firstly on Jenny's blog and then on Debby Winters and thought they were very different.

I have done a couple of Teabag cards in the past but this flower is so pretty. I decided at 10.30pm Friday that I just had to have a try......bit of a problem I did not remember having any double sided paper. I went scrabbling around in my stash and found literally just one sheet of paper. By this time it was almost 11pm but I was determined so armed with my 1 1/2 inch punch I made a start. I cannot believe how easy it was to do and how quickly I had made the flower.

Although it is certainly not the nicest paper I thought I would post the results of my frantic 45min play. I now simply have to purchase some decent pretty double sided paper to make a better card.......

I think Jenny and Debby got the ideas from Split Coast Stampers and the link for the template is here

Hi Maria,
Lovely card...Jen showed us Thursday gone how to do it :)
I had seen it before on a card but not in the flesh.
Once you have typed the link put the cursor at the begining and click hold and drag to highlight the link then type a word like *link* or *here* or *this* etc etc and then the word chosen will be underlined as the link....hth
