I stamped out the Dahlia images onto white cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx ink, using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set them. Then, I colored the dahlia images by blending ink over them with an ink blender tool. I fussy cut them as focus points for my card. I rolled on Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen and sprinkled on glitters: Pink Fizz for the pink areas, and Butterscotch for the yellow areas. I also laid down a strip of 2-1/2" Tear-ific Tape onto some cardstock, and pulled off the release paper. I also laid down two strips of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape toward the outer edges of the exposed 2-1/2" Tear-ific Tape, and left the release paper. I burnished in some Butterscotch glitter onto all the exposed 2-1/2" Tear-ific Tape across the whole cardstock. Once it was burnished in good and well, I brushed off all the remaining glitter with the Glitter Brush. I pulled off the release paper from the two 1/8" strips and then burnished in Cobalt Glaze glitter. These blue lines really popped! I layered the glitter strips and dahlias over some patterned paper from the Photo Play Paper Crane Collection Pack, and then adhered this onto a card base.
I treated some white cardstock with my Anti Static Bag, then stamped it using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and pink ink. I then cleaned my stamp (while still on the Stamp Platform and then reinked the stamp with Versamark ink. I sprinkled on Amour embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I die cut the sentiment with the Ornate Frame Layering Die Collection. I rolled on more Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen around the outer edge of the sentiment oval and sprinkled on Butterscotch glitter.
I also decorated the inside of the card. I lined the inside of the card with more patterned paper from the Photo Play Paper Crane Collection Pack. I trimmed some white cardstock with my Tonic Guillotine to make it a little bit smaller than the patterned paper so I could use the patterned paper as a frame to the white cardstock. I stamped out some flourishes from the Flourishes One stamp set in light inks around the edge of the cardstock. I also stamped the sentiment in the center with colored ink. I adhered all the layers together inside the card.
