There is a technique challenge over on SCS, and today's challenge was to create something with a dahlia fold. Basically you fold circles of paper, arrange them together, and they look like a dahlia flower. Here is my first try, and I kept it clean and simple.
The background stamp is Pretty Pattern Backgrounder, and the "thanks" comes from the Scripty Words set from Cornish Heritage Farms. I found my retired velvet Teal ribbon (from SU) and paired it with a Teal rhinestone brad (also SU) just to have a little pop of color.
You don't want to use a heavy cardstock to make this dahlia flower - it would be very hard to make those tiny little folds. Use a doublesided paper for maximum effect, lightest weight possible for easier folding.
